From Jamestown to today, Virginia has one of the oldest histories of winemaking in the New World. The early settlers started vines from native varieties. 200 years after Jamestown, at Monticello Thomas Jefferson endlessly tried to grow vinifera grapes, but only the native varieties survived phylloxera. Even so, he was sure that wine made from these grapes would equal the finest wines of Europe, and he saw wine in his visions of yeoman virtue: "No nation is drunken where wine is cheap." Today his sentiments live on in some back labels, which proclaim that "Good wine is a daily necessity for me." There are over 50 wineries in Virginia making that wine.
