Have you ever heard of an event that you thought would be unbelieveably great to attend, but you didn’t think you would ever have the chance? For me that was a wine festival on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. On May 12th, Monticello hosted the event. This was not the first wine festival held there, but our schedules did not allow us to attend in the past. My husband and I had the opportunity to be there this year and it more than lived up to our expectations. We had a nice surprise when looking around; we noticed we were not the only Kentuckians at the festival. The tip off was a UK lawn chair. It was great to meet some other Wildcat fans there.
Central Virginia’s wineries were represented by their most established ones, such as Barboursville Vineyards as well as newcomers such as Stinson Vineyards. There were fifteen wineries there altogether. Visitors were also invited to take a walking tour through the house.
As Jefferson fans, my husband and I have shared many visits at Monticello. This one was exceptional. The pictures say it all.
