Drink up incredible scenery along with award-winning wines during a visit to Trump Winery, nestled into the foothills of Virginia’s idyllic Blue Ridge Mountains. The winery sits just a few miles from Monticello, the historic home of Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe’s Ash Lawn-Highland. With 165 acres of grapes across the 1,300-acre estate, Trump Winery clocks in as the largest vineyard in Virginia. Its wines are critically acclaimed, especially the sparkling varieties—the 2007 Trump SP Reserve is the highest-rated wine in Virginia—while the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay rate highly as well.
Trump Winery is located about 20 minutes outside of Charlottesville, along the Monticello Wine Trail. Visitors can stop in at the tasting room to sample Trump’s award-winning wines any day of the week. Tastings cost $10 and include a souvenir wine glass. The winery also offers overnight stays at the luxurious Albemarle Estate.
