Jefferson Vineyards

Jefferson Vineyards is a family owned winery and vineyard in Charlottesville, Virginia, located where Thomas Jefferson and Philip Mazzei first began the American wine revolution. Thirty four years ago, we introduced quality modern viticulture to Virginia, helping realize Jefferson’s dream. Our winery offers select wines of superior quality and is considered to have “one of the region’s most consistent track records” (Wine Spectator). We are located between two presidential homes and are the closest winery to Charlottesville.

In my opinion, when the country is populated in proportion to its extent, the best wine in the world will be made here.
