Shenandoah B & B: Monticello Wine Trail
All of the vineyards, over 30, were inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s vision for creating world class wine. Jefferson dreamed of local surrounding vineyards that produced wine rivaling the best of Old World wines.
Although the former president would not live to see it in his lifetime, Virginia has earned and deserves the reputation as a wine destination.
Today, all of the 30 plus members of the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA) on the Monticello Wine Trail consistently maintain high rankings on state, national and international wine competitions.
Now you, too, can enjoy the fruition of Jefferson’s vision. Come and see the birthplace of American wine surrounded by pastoral countryside and lush vineyard views with the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop. Take a step back and imagine Jefferson himself envisioning what we now enjoy.
Just make sure you bring friends or family with you. The Monticello Trail is an experience to be shared. This is the time to sample many excellent wines together. The more the merrier! It’s a wonderful way to spend a day.
