Attractions & Museums Fall at Monticello

A ttractions G uide

From the moment you glimpse the iconic pillars of Monticello’s West Portico and the breathtaking displays of fall foliage, you know you are in the presence of a visionary mind. The author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson dedicated his life to serving our country at its founding as the third United States president, Governor of Virginia and Secretary of State, among Photo Credit: Thomas Jefferson Foundation/Monticello other roles. Jefferson was also an architect, scholar, musician, inventor and agriculturalist. Like the Taj Mahal and the Tower of London, Monticello is on the list of World Heritage Sites known the world over as cherished pieces of human history and of great universal value. When you tour the home, his clever inventions abound, from the Great Clock in the hallway that ingeniously marks the days and hours with a pulley system to the polygraph copying machine he designed for his famous letters. You’ll also learn more about Jefferson’s family and the enslaved community along Mulberry Row. Kids will love the Mountaintop Hands-on Activity Center “extras” on the first three weekends of October and everyone should set aside time to stroll the grounds of this famous plantation and admire the glorious gardens.

Michie Tavern

Attractions & Museums More Historical Riches

When visiting Monticello, make sure you save time for James Monroe’s Highland, the plantation home of our fifth president, James Monroe. Just two-and-a-half miles down the road from Thomas Jefferson’s “Little Mountain,” Highland is a historic presidential residence and working farm with more than 500 acres of land. Visitors are invited to tour the historic presidential residence, explore the amazing boxwood gardens and learn more about President Monroe and his wife, Elizabeth.

A ttractions G uide

For those seeing both James Monroe’s Highland and Monticello on the same day, the perfect lunch break can be found at the 18th-century Michie Tavern, just down the road from Monticello. Established in 1784 by Colonel William Michie, the rustic restaurant features hearty Southern fare and servers in period attire. Another presidential property to explore is Montpelier, the home of James and Dolly Madison. While visiting the 2,750-acre estate and mansion north of Charlottesville, you will discover historic buildings, engaging exhibits, active archeological dig sites and more.

Scenic Scottsville Located along the James River, the town of Scottsville in Albemarle County is about 30 minutes south of Charlottesville. Founded in the 18th century, Scottsville was formerly the Albemarle County seat. Today, it exudes small town charm with historic and recreational fun.

A ttractions G uide

Start your visit by strolling the historic district to enjoy beautiful architecture, antique shops, delicious restaurants, a local brewery and a museum capturing the town’s transformation from an 18th century settlement to a bustling 19th century river and canal port. Across from the Scottsville Museum, visit Canal Basin Square for a self-guided tour of the area’s river transportation history from the time of the Native American Monacans until the railroad era. Explore a scale model canal lock, a full-size batteau replica and more. Venture farther down country lanes to the scenic beauty of nearby vineyards and horse farms. Canoeing or kayaking down the James River is a great fall activity for anyone who can swim, even young children. The Hatton Ferry — the last poled ferry still operating in the country — also offers a fun trip across the river for all ages, but be sure to call before your trip to confirm its operating. No matter your plans, it is sure to be memorable!

Vineyards Bountiful & Beautiful

Photo credit: Cindy Schornberg of Keswick Vineyards

Thomas Jefferson dreamt that Virginia wines would one day be plentiful and held in high regard, and today’s local vintners have accomplished that by producing wonderful award-winning wines. The Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA), which includes Albemarle and surrounding counties, encompasses more than half of Virginia’s wine country and contains more than approximately 1,200 acres of stunning vineyards. Vineyards in our Monticello AVA benefit from a natural east-southeast exposure and mild fall temperatures. Now the fifth largest wine-producing state in the country, Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines.

T ours & T astings G uide

More than 30 local vintners offer up tastings from the lightest, lemoniest Pinot Grigio to the deepest, richest Merlot. Varieties special to the Monticello AVA include Cabernet Franc, Norton and Viognier. Cabernet Franc, lighter than a Cabernet Sauvignon, tends to have peppery aromas with hints of tobacco, plum or violets. The native North American Norton is deeply colored and might have notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Viognier is a white variety that gives off floral or fruity aromas but is typically a dry or slightly off-dry wine. Whatever your palate desires — flowery, fruity, smoky or light — you’re sure to find it here. An old world family heritage blends a new world wine tradition with Virginia terroir.

Our passion is the customer, our craft is the wine.

Best of the Brew Brews to Taste Charlottesville is proud to be home to a myriad of microbrewers, taphouses and establishments that specialize in crafting or carrying outstanding handmade beers and ciders. Thomas Jefferson took great interest in creating not only wines, but also beers and ciders. In 1815, he wrote, “I am lately become a brewer for family use.”

In addition to Jefferson’s home-brewed beer, hard cider was another everyday table drink at Monticello made from apples grown on site. One local cidery uses Jefferson’s favorite variety of apple, the Albemarle Pippin, to create a lovely hard cider that rounds out the range of beverages we’re proud to call locally made. Another cidery has begun making a delightful perry, a fermented pear juice, as well.

Monticello, in conjunction with our own homegrown Starr Hill Brewery, has crafted an artisanal beer: Monticello Reserve Ale. This Official Beer of Monticello was inspired by what Mr. Jefferson labored over and loved in a beer. Any visit wouldn’t be complete without ordering a bottle of this heritage ale, which can be found at a variety of local restaurants and beer and wine shops.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Jefferson’s Love of Food & Wine Thomas Jefferson was sometimes called “America’s first wine expert” due to his extensive experimentation in viticulture and oenology. Be sure to 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. Try out the model dumbwaiter in the “Crossroads” exhibit to see if you could have transported bottles of wine upstairs to guests without mishap! Afterwards, stop by the dining room to examine Jefferson’s original dumbwaiter, which has been restored to its original working condition.

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. Excavations showed that, in Jefferson’s retirement years, the family most often dined on pearlware, an English earthenware similar to porcelain but not as expensive. A set of green, shell-edged pearlware now graces the dining room, on loan from The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

D ining G uide

Virginia is considered the birthplace of American wine. While Jefferson’s desire to have great wines locally available was never fulfilled during his lifetime, thanks to his unrelenting pursuits and successors, we can all now raise our glasses and revel in his dream come to fruition. To ensure that this dream continues, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation has partnered with Piedmont Virginia Community College to create a training vineyard on Montalto, Jefferson’s “high mountain” overlooking Monticello. Visit monticello.org, for touring details and history.

A spectacular sight awaits visitors in the dining room, which features walls painted a brilliant chrome yellow. The color — which replaced the Wedgewood blue that inspired so many homeowners across the country — is not so new, it was chosen by Jefferson around 1815 to grace the walls that set the scene for many formal dinners, where rice soup, mutton and even a new treat — ice cream — was served.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style

Charlottesville lies among a few beautiful counties, including Albemarle, Nelson and Orange, whose rich agricultural history and farm community are well loved and supported by our many local restaurants. Well before socalled locavores arrived in the headlines, many of our restaurants were already building their reputations on the quality of the local food they supplied to their grateful customers. Area chefs take great pride in creating memorable meals, and they also enjoy letting the artisan’s hand show through when plating locally crafted cheese, charcuterie, jam and wine. It is no exaggeration to say that local chefs and restaurateurs are friends with the growers, farmers and brewers who supply their establishments. Take note of the farms and artisanal ventures mentioned by name on menus, for you may encounter some of the people at the popular City Market that takes place each Saturday through October or find their products on the shelves of a specialty store — the perfect souvenir or gift.

The Arts & Music Scene

Art That Moves You Surrealist painter Salvador Dali said, “A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.” Whatever medium may inspire you, galleries and artwork abound here in Charlottesville. Each first Friday of the month, local galleries and other venues on the Downtown Mall open their doors to display works of art in the popular First Friday Artwalk.

T he A rts G uide

A perfect place to start your walk is the McGuffey Art Center, located one block from the Downtown Mall. This gallery space is full of artists at work in their studios accented by a gift shop that carries a variety of members’ art throughout the year. You can browse the light-filled studios and multiple exhibition spaces at McGuffey itself. When you explore the Downtown Mall, check out Chroma Projects, located in York Place, where you can see “Landmarks: A Collaborative Project” in September. Harris Fine Art is also located in downtown Charlottesville and showcases over 20 different national and regional artists. For those who are interested in local history, make sure you head over to the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at UVA for “Object Lessons: A History of the University in 100 Objects.” This Bicentennial exhibition is up until December and tells the story of UVA through various artifacts that represent two centuries of the University of Virginia. The University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum of Art provides a sophisticated, high-tech home for the art contained within its historic walls. Alongside the permanent exhibits this fall, explore special exhibits, such as “Dealer’s Choice: The Samuel Kootz Gallery 1945-1966” through December 17. You can also visit the museum for Final Fridays, which are held on the last fridays of September and October in the fall. Connect with art and friends, and don’t miss their exhibit spotlight talks at 6:15 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. A visit to the studio, gallery and printmaking workshop of landscape artist Frederick Nichols is just a short drive north of Charlottesville in Barboursville. Visit the Nichols Gallery Annex to see the work of Virginia artists. On the way, stop at Contemporary Art gallery Les Yeux du Monde just off Route 20. Les Yeux du Monde will feature the work of Susan McAlister from October 5– November 12. After visiting Barboursville, head east to Gordonsville and see a unique collection of work by local and national artists at the newly opened Annie Gould Gallery. In Waynesboro, P. Buckley Moss will be hosting a Barn Show and Gallery Open House on October 13–15 at both her home, The Barn, and gallery in Waynesboro. Art lovers should also save the date for the free, self-guided Artisans Studio Tour on November 11 and 12. During this tour, attendees can visit 24 studios and meet 45 artisans. In addition, some artisans will give demonstrations during the tour. Whether you are merely appreciating or interested in purchasing, the Charlottesville area’s vibrant and robust art scene should not be missed.

Festivals & Events Off to the Races!

T he A rts & E vents C alender

Autumn is the time to head to the races! The Foxfield Races and Montpelier Hunt Races are two must-attend events in Charlottesville. From the fall fashion and tailgating to the exciting horse races and the adorable Jack Russell Terrier races, these affairs are the perfect way to spend a weekend day in Jefferson’s Virginia. The Foxfield Races, held on Sunday, September 24, is a family-friendly event. It includes five steeplechase races and will begin at 10 a.m. with the first race beginning at 1:30 p.m. With stick pony races, a Children’s Activities Tent and more, there will be plenty to keep children entertained during the day. Foxfield Races are bi-annual and also host races on the last Saturday of April. The spring races are a popular event for college students, especially those at the nearby University of Virginia. This steeplechase course has been hosting races since 1978 and has become a part of Charlottesville culture and tradition. Visit foxfieldraces.com for more information. The Montpelier Hunt Races will be held on November 4 at James Madison’s Montpelier, about 30 minutes from Charlottesville. Another family-friendly event, there are seven races; the sixth race is a must-see, as the horses run on a course with Montpelier’s celebrated live brush fences. The Montpelier Hunt Races also cater to families with stick Photo Credit: Isabel Kurek horse races. In addition, adults are sure to love the hat and tailgate contests. Be on the lookout for our sister publication, Charlottesville Wine & Country Living, who will be sponsoring and helping judge the tailgate contest this fall. During the affair, be sure to also browse all the vendors on site — the shopping is always a popular part of the event. History lovers are sure to enjoy seeing James Madison’s Montpelier, too. Visit montpelierraces.org for more information.

Tip: If you want to upgrade your experience, both events offer tent

packages. These are perfect for getting together with friends and family or even co-workers to make the most out of your day. The tents may also provide some much-needed shade, as we can have unsually warm days in both September and November. 56

The Scoop on UVA The University of Virginia is a bastion of tradition founded by Thomas Jefferson, the most popular man in town. Those who are fond of him often refer to him as TJ or Mr. Jefferson. Whether you’re preparing to enter the university’s hallowed halls for a degree or enjoying a weekend in town, here is your guide to local lingo. We proudly cheer on our Orange and Blue, “The Cavaliers” — “Cavs” for short, or “Wahoos.” What’s a Wahoo? Legend has Photo Credit: Jennifer Jones it that Washington & Lee baseball fans dubbed the UVA players “wahoos” during their fierce in-state rivalry back in the 1890s. By 1940, “Wahoos” was in general use to denote the University students or events relating to them. The abbreviated “Hoos” sprang up later in student newspapers. The area on which UVA sits is called “Grounds,” not “campus,” and freshmen here are called “first-years.” The large, domed building with Mr. Jefferson’s great statue is the Rotunda, and its recent renovation and restoration project of the nearly 200-year-old structure has helped it remain at the heart of the University’s academic mission. It faces a huge grass courtyard known as “The Lawn,” surrounded by historic residences that are still coveted student and faculty residences. From the steps of the Rotunda, you can see “The Corner,” the area located at the intersection of University Avenue and the central entrance to UVA, the Honor Gate. Always abustle, the Corner has a great selection of casual restaurants with college prices and trendy shops that give it a cool vibe.

N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

Charlottesville is a fabulous place to raise a family. The University of Virginia provides us with a highly educated population, diverse cultures, strong employment, college sporting events, a lively arts scene and state-of-the-art health care. From preschool to post-graduate, excellence in education is important here. Parents of little ones will find a huge variety of preschools, from creative co-ops to international immersion programs. Charlottesville’s long history of prioritizing education is exemplified in our many schools. Not only are the public school systems exceptional, but our area boasts more private-school opportunities per capita than most, offering everything from competitive college-prep programs (with boarding options) to schools based on the teachings of alternative leaders in education. Charlottesville City Schools, Albemarle County Schools and area private schools believe in the evidence behind exposing students to a wide variety of experiences, viewpoints and opportunities so they can develop their own interest areas and strengths. From fine arts, STEM technologies and academies, and computer availability to project-based learning, immersion language curriculums and multi-age classrooms, students have the tools needed to learn and apply in all aspects of life.

How It All Started Charlottesville, named for Queen Charlotte Sophia of England and founded in 1762, is an inspiring setting to call home. Charlotte was also known as the wife of King George III, the object of scorn by Thomas Jefferson and others during the American Revolution. Albemarle County’s historic roots extend equally as far.

N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

The county is named in honor of William Anne van Keppel, the second Earl of Albemarle and the Governor General of the county from 1734 to 1735. The first county seat was located in Scottsville. In 1761, however, county government was moved to Charlottesville, which was established as a town in 1762 and as a city in 1888. One reason Charlottesville has so many transplanted residents is that it’s a small city — according to the U.S. Census Bureau, at around 10.3 square miles, with an estimated 46,912 residents — but it has the trappings of a big one. Musical acts and dramatic performances, fine dining, lovely shops and exciting sporting events are all available in abundance. Covering about 721 square miles, the county’s population is more than double that of the city, at an estimated 106,878. With all of the area’s positive attributes, it’s not surprising Charlottesville also attracts many major employers. The city is one of few in the state with a triple-A Bond rating from two national reporting agencies and was recently ranked one of the top cities in the country to do business. UVA and its graduate programs attract talented students with infectious energy and exciting ideas who are a tremendous resource for local business. Both city and county are fascinating places to explore and wonderful locales to call home, and we welcome you! Be sure to also check out the Charlottesville Wine & Country Living magazines to explore how to make the most out of life in Jefferson’s Virginia.
