Jefferson Vineyards

1353 Thomas Jefferson Parkway, Charlottesville   | |  434-977-3042

 To Thomas Jefferson, wine was a "necessity of life."  In a glass, he seemed to see a benefit to health, to culture, and to society. In his founding vision of our young country, he perceived a place for wine and carved a place for our first commercial viticultural endeavor in Albemarle County.

It is on that same land that our forty-year legacy continuing Jefferson's vision began. The site of Virginia’s first wine company, today our award-winning wines range from delicate and refreshing, to elegant, full-bodied and rich.  We work tirelessly on our Viognier wine program (Virginia’s state grape).  It now stands as one of Virginia’s most highly awarded Viognier’s, vintage after vintage.  Just 10 minutes from Charlottesville, Jefferson Vineyards is located in the heart of America’s most historic winemaking region, neighboring Monticello, President Thomas Jefferson’s residence and Highland, the home of President James Monroe.
