About these ratings

Jefferson Vineyards is one of Charlottesville's premier wineries for several reasons. One, its heritage (commissioned by Thomas Jefferson who sold this part of his land to a viticulturist for the purpose of producing wine); two, its expanse (approximately 20 acres of vines that produce between 6,000 and 8,000 cases annually) and three, its low tasting fee (only $10, and you get to take your tasting glass home).

Its convenient location, about one mile southeast of Monticello, isn't shabby either. A recent guest tells Yelp.com that this is "Definitely an easy spot to hit between presidential homes. Bring some cheese and crackers and enjoy the grounds that include nine shaded picnic tables and a row of Adirondack chairs with a serene pastoral view." And what about the wines? According to one TripAdvisor traveler: "Thomas Jefferson was right: this part of Virginia makes some of the finest wines I've ever had. Every one I tasted on a recent tour was fabulous."

Jefferson Vineyards is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit the official website.
