Wine Festival at Monticello

It's official now - Monticello is going to have a wine festival this year on Saturday September 18th.  Come join us for what promises to be a great event.  Per Monticello's announcement:

Join us for an unforgettable evening of fine wine and live music. Sample the region’s best wines on Monticello's beautiful West Lawn while enjoying the rare opportunity to stroll around the gardens after hours and learn about Jefferson’s passion for wine and his recently restored wine cellar. Local wine experts will be on hand to answer questions about our region’s finest wines and how they compare to the vintages that Jefferson enjoyed. 

We joined together with another B&B to obtain a special VIP table at this year's event.  Included is a locally sourced gourmet cheese & meat board, 3 bottles of local wine and a special tour of Jefferson’s wine cellar by the person who managed it's reconstruction. A house tour of Monticello is included as well.  Take home two Monticello wine glasses to commemorate the occasion.

We offer this to you as a special package when you stay at Foxfield Inn - two nights in a deluxe room, a bottle of Virginia wine on arrival, two Foxfield Inn wineglasses, gourmet breakfast each morning plus the event at Monticello.  Just contact us at 1-866-369-3536 or book online noting Monticello Wine Festival package in the Special Needs section. Cost for this package is $725 for the weekend.

The Monticello event starts at 6:00pm on Saturday night leaving you plenty of time during the day to explore local wineries.   You have time to enjoy a mid-afternoon hot tub before departing here shortly before 5:15 for the festival.
