Jefferson Vineyards

Region: Central Virginia

In 1774 Thomas Jefferson and Philip Mazzei created Virginia's first commercial wine company and vineyard on our estate. Four decades ago, we introduced quality modern viticulture to Virginia, helping realize Jefferson and Mazzei's dream.

Our wines range from delicate and refreshing, to elegant, full-bodied and rich. We are one of the highest awarded Virginia wineries for Viognier (the state grape). In 2001 we bottled one of Virginia's first Petit Verdot varietals. We continue extensive experimentation with these two varietals, skin fermented white wines and a range of estate reserve wines that reflect the best of our Virginia terroir.
