Vineyard Tours & Tastings Vineyards Bountiful & Beautiful 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 award-winning wines. The Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA), which includes Albemarle and surrounding counties, contains a third of Virginia’s wine country with over 1,300 acres of stunning vineyards. Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines, and our local AVA Photo credit: Early Mountain Vineyards continues to shine each year with many wines being selected for the Governor’s Case and being awarded Gold Medals in the Governor’s Cup Awards.

T ours & T astings G uide

Vineyards in our Monticello AVA benefit from a natural east-southeast exposure and warmer summer temperatures. More than 30 local vintners offer up tastings from the lightest, lemoniest Pinot Grigio to the deepest, richest Merlot, and many are doing so virtually right now. Varieties special to the Monticello AVA include Cabernet Franc, Norton and Viognier. Whatever your palate desires — flowery, fruity, smoky or light — you’re sure to find it here.
