Travel Haiku - Barboursville Vineyards (Virginia)


smooth as the
grape farms
the best grade wine

as we down the
best grade wine
smoothness of the grape farms

Barbousville Vineyards
the only thing discomforting
the ruins of Thomas Jefferson

As the birthplace of American viticulture, Virginia has been cultivating and producing wine grapes for more than four centuries and now has
about 140 wineries. To witness where some of the state's finest wines are made, head to Barboursville Vineyards, just 20 minutes outside of Charlottesville. Tour the winery, taste its award-winning varietals, enjoy a gourmet meal at its Palladio Restaurant, and walk the grounds to see ruins of a home designed by Thomas Jefferson. As a bonus, the drive there passes through some of the state's most beautiful farmland.
