I've frequented Jefferson Vineyards for over 10 years and their wines are remarkably fine. The setting is beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxing and unpretentious. One of, if not the best wineries in central Virginia.

On a rainy day it was still attracting visitors. A good recommendation.... slightly distracted server at the tasting having to double at the cash register. May have been due to weather, short staffed??

We appreciate your feedback and visit. We may have been short staffed during mid week. Some times many customers arrive all at once. We are working on a longer term plan to address this. We hope you will visit us again soon.
