Thomas Jefferson is considered the “father of Virginia wine,” for importing wines from Europe and attempting to establish vineyards in Virginia more than 200 years ago. Although largely unsuccessful in his day, his vision has been realized by talented wine makers throughout the state of Virginia. Each November, enjoy Virginia wines, local food purveyors and artisans, musical entertainment and a visit from “Mr. Jefferson” himself as he speaks on his love of wines and his beloved retreat home, Poplar Forest.
