    Something else to savor after a visit to Monticello, Jefferson's Charlottesville-close estate, is a fine Virginia wine.

    Though Jefferson himself tried unsuccessfully in 1774 to harvest grapes for wine-making, today the Old Dominion State's 130 plus wineries are found spread from the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains right up to the populated suburbs surrounding Washington D.C.

    So whether Old World or New World wine-making styles, Virginia's sure got some rockin' good wines to me.
