(Photo: by Dawn Marie Carlson. We visited Monticello Winery in Napa Valley for the first time one August afternoon and were pleased to see the iconic Jeffersonian architecture transplanted there. The architecture is classic and the grounds are meticulously groomed and surrounded by fields of fruitful vineyards. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the unique site.)
