Thomas Jefferson believed in the virtues of agrarian life for establishing America as a free and independent nation. His legacy in gardening and influence in the cultivation of wine is still seen today. Monticello’s Direc­tor of Gardens and Grounds and a Virginia winemaker—often referred to as the “Father of Virginia Wine”— will lead this insider program in Monticello’s newest vineyard on Montalto, with incompa­rable views of Charlottesville, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Monticello. Rausse will share Jefferson’s ideas for an agrarian society and vision for a U.S. wine industry. Program ends with a casual, outdoor cheese-and-wine reception. Outdoors, some walking is involved. 6-7:30 pm, $55 per person (includes a $25 charitable gift).
