From his own home and agricultural experimentation, to the founding tenets of the nation, Thomas Jefferson dreamed big. One of his cherished hopes was that someday Virginia would produce its own excellent vintages; he considered good wine necessary to his own happiness. On this tour, experience Jefferson's dreams firsthand, with a tour of Monticello followed by a visit to a nearby vineyard for lunch. It was Blenheim where Thomas Jefferson and his bride, Martha, are said to have “rested and warmed themselves” after their coach stalled nearby during a snowstorm. Now a vineyard owned and designed by musician Dave Matthews, Blenheim offers beautiful views and the opportunity to purchase a flight or glass of wine to go with your lunch, since you will be leaving the driving to us! This unique and convenient day trip transports you in an old-fashioned trolley! Pick-up at the Omni available at 8:55am.
