Charlottesville Wine Tours

 

The Charlottesville and Central Virginia area are the birth place of Wine making in America, from the spectacular views of the vineyards that brush up against the Blue Ridge Mountains to the rolling hills of Monticello where Thomas Jefferson, America’s “first distinguished viticulturist” envisioned vineyards and wines from his native state of Virginia that could stand head to head with the worlds greatest. At JnJ Transport we will take you along the The Monticello Wine Trail to one of your favorite Charlottesville area wineries or pick a new one.
