Description
The entire estate is open for tasting their wines in a stroll or in a picnic, and their informed and enthusiastic hosts conduct tastings continuously in the Tuscan Tasting Room, every day of the week, and in Library 1821 on weekends. The Tasting Room is where the broadest range of their current vintages is introduced, while the Library 1821 presents a changing selection of flights of older vintages from their cellars, and with bite-sized culinary pairings designed by their chefs. Every encouragement is given, also, to enjoying their wines in the truly splendid lawns surrounding the historic Landmark Ruins of Thomas Jefferson's mansion for Governor James Barbour, a pleasant stroll away.   Guided tours of the winery are offered, on Saturday and Sunday, and first-time visitors are especially encouraged to allow the extra time for this introduction to their estate history and winemaking processes. The Octagon Barrel Room presents a permanent exhibition of the biography of their signature wine, and the brief film about the estate is shown throughout the day. Guests may guide themselves on a tour of the Landmark Ruins, one of Jefferson's true architectural masterpieces. In its elegant Palladian proportions and siting on a gentle knoll, the house unmistakably recalls Jefferson's own, and deeply refreshes their appreciation of structural balance in wine. They warmly recommend a visit.
