Welcome to Charlottesville

Charlottesville is a small Central Virginia city set in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The city is known for its scenic settings, vibrant downtown, and important historical sites going back to the Colonial and Revolutionary War periods. Founding Father and third president of the United States Thomas Jefferson made his home at Monticello, a grand house and plantation 3 miles southeast of present-day Charlotte. Jefferson also established a tradition of viniculture and winemaking that has grown to one of the area’s top attractions. The Monticello Wine Trail features 30 wineries, including one of Thomas Jefferson’s original 1774 vineyard sites, all within an easy drive from Charlottesville.
