|Monticello’s Wine Festival is held on the West Lawn
of Thomas Jefferson’s home.
May brings us two of Central Virginia’s most prominent wine festivals — the Montpelier Wine Festival at James Madison’s estate in Orange County on Saturday, May 4th, and the Monticello Wine Festival at Thomas Jefferson’s home on Saturday, May 11th. These festivals will feature wines from some of the area’s best vineyards, including Barboursville Vineyards, Trump Vineyards and Virginia Wine Works (all of whom received gold medals in the recent Virginia Governor’s Cup wine competition). These are
great opportunities to sample some superb wines, learn about Virginia’s leading vineyards and winemakers, and experience the homes of some of our country’s founders.
