Tonight on the West Lawn at Monticello! The Monticello Wine Festival is an opportunity to sample some of the best wines in our area in a historic setting. The weather is fabulous today and everyone should have a great time, not sure if tickets are still available at this time, but for future events, check out the Monticello Wine Trail! One of my favorites will be represented, Pollak! Try their Cabernet Franc!Cabernet Franc 2007 Reserve was recognized with gold at the Grand Harvest Awards sponsored by the Vineyard and Management magazine while the 2008 vintage received gold at the Virginia State Fair.
Kluge Estate, Veritas, Keswick, Whitehall, Jefferson,Afton Mountain, Gabriele Rausse and King Family wines will all be available! Enjoy, I can’t make it but guaranteed I will be there next year! Look for future posts about EACH of these wineries and tips about making the most of your visit to them.
