The Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA), established in 1984, is located in the central Piedmont region along the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Virginia AVA takes its name from Thomas Jefferson's historic home where Jefferson attempted, unsuccessfully, to grow wine grapes during the late 18th century. More than 40 Monticello wineries are conveniently located near Charlottesville which lies at the heart of the AVA. Monticello wineries produce wines from dozens of different varieties, with Viognier, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay being the most notable.

Whether you would like to visit a winery that provides beautiful vineyard lodging, has food available to complement its wines, hosts vineyard weddings, or produces wines from organic grapes, we make it easy to find the best Monticello wine tasting and touring destinations.
