Eat, drink, shop and explore a gem of American history when the Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival returns to Mr. Jefferson’s south lawn. Join Poplar Forest in celebrating Jefferson’s legacy as the father of Virginia wine with tastings from more than a dozen regional wineries. Enjoy live performances by local musicians; graze on foods by local vendors; and more. Tour the president’s private retreat at a reduced rate throughout the day. Funds raised support the ongoing restoration, preservation and interpretation of the historic property.
Experience the festival as a Jefferson VIP—which includes access to a private tent, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a private audience with Mr. Jefferson himself, an exclusive wine tasting and more. Jefferson VIP tasting tickets are $125 per person or $225 per couple; Jefferson VIP non-tasting tickets are $75 per person. General admission tickets—which include tastings and a complimentary Poplar Forest wine glass, while supplies last—are $25 in advance, $30 at the door; non-tasting tickets are $15; children age 6 and under, free.
