…Monticello ( Thomas Jefferson's abode), someone on the tour recommended we visit Jefferson Vineyards (a short distance away). For many people, White Zinfandel and [unfortunately] Boone's Farm are their introduction into the world of wine. I like to think I started off on higher grounds with Virginia wine.
