Dining Room at Monticello: Monticello/Sequoia Design
Thomas Jefferson was sometimes called “America’s first wine expert” due to his extensive experimentation in viticulture and oenology. Visitors can check out Monticello’s restored wine cellar in the passage beneath the house. A platform above the brick floor allows visitors entry to the wine cellar to see what it looked like during Jefferson’s retirement years in the first part of the 19th century.
A spectacular sight awaits visitors in the dining room, which features walls painted a brilliant chrome yellow. The color, which replaced the Wedgewood blue, inspired so many homeowners across the country. The dining-room restoration was sponsored by Polo Ralph Lauren and marked the first collaboration with Monticello curators and archaeologists with regards to the dining-room ceramics.
