Charlottesville - Kirsty Harmon Blenheim Vineyards

Join us for a quick romp through Virginia wine country in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains on “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  We only had two days to visit!  Two weeks or even a lifetime is better when you visit a place as charming and inviting as Charlottesville in Albemarle County Virginia.  There’s more history here than you likely absorbed in your entire formal education (think Thomas Jefferson and James Madison for starters).  For foodies; there’s an amazing wine industry (growing by leaps and bounds); a host of craft brewers; succulent Virginia apples (yummy cider); and plenty of delicious cuisine from Southern comfort food to edgy New American.  We soaked-in as much wine, food and culture as possible.  So, join us for a quick overview on our show today.  Most people we spoke with started making plans to move to Charlottesville within a short time of discovering all the area offers.  Locals would never dream of moving.   Tour Jefferson’s Monticello and meet the man who is considered the father of the Virginia wine industry.  Get a taste of classic 18th Century cooking at

historic Michie Tavern.  And, hopscotch with us throughout Albemarle County to taste wines at Jefferson Vineyards, Blenheim Vineyards (Dave Matthews fans you’ll love hearing about his winery), the winery with the Presidential seal of approval (and ours) that makes some delicious sparkling wine, and more!  It’s food, wine, history, hospitality, and more.   And, like we say, if anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, especially in Virginia, tell ’em reservations!


Here’s a quick rundown of more places we visited so you can get information:
