About Jefferson Vineyards

Jefferson Vineyards in Charlottesville, Virginia has some very auspicious history. The land on which it sits was sold by Thomas Jefferson to an Italian winemaker so that Jefferson could realize his dream of the production of wines native to Virginia. This undertaking ground to a halt during the Revolutionary war, but vineyards were once again planted here in 1981. Today Jefferson Vineyards is known as one of the first wineries to produce quality, modern wines in Virginia.

Asked for tasting of two wines (no charge) and were served four. Delightful, unrushed young crew serving us this day. Some interesting production techniques at this location; as, wines are barreled and stored at slightly lower temperatures than found at other wineries; their Cabernet Franc ($25) was French oaked for 90% time and then the remaining time in new American oak; the delicious Viognier ($30) was French oaked 89% of the time and finished in stainless steel; the 2014 $32 Meritage grapes (36% Petit Verdot, 35% Merlot, 20% Cab Franc, 9% Cab Sauv) were all independently barrel oaked for 17 ...

A former Marine, Reagan trained at wineries in Virginia and one in Florida before taking the reins at Jefferson in 2005. With a cherubic face and ginger beard, he is the sort of guy you’d invite to your Super Bowl party, but then ... Read full review
