2009_TJWF_058Thomas Jefferson called wine “…a necessary of life with me.” This November, thousands of like-minded wine enthusiasts will gather at his secluded plantation to toast the “Father of Virginia Wine” in the eighth annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival.

The festival will feature Virginia wineries along with artisans, local food purveyors and musical entertainment. It is held inside large, heated tents, rain or shine. Tasting tickets include a complimentary wine glass. Because this is an adult event, there are no children’s activities available. We ask that attendees refrain from bringing outside food or drink. With the exception of service dogs, pets are prohibited. Hotel packages will be available.
