Join us in celebrating the revitalization of the Monticello Wine Company, as we reintroduce the historic brand to the Charlottesville community with new wines!
Afton Mountain Vineyards is excited to announce the addition of a second label: Monticello Wine Company (MoWineCo). Originally founded in 1873 as a local wine cooperative, the
Monticello Wine Company label is a historic brand being revitalized with a fresh, modern approach by Tyler
and Andrew Greeley, members of the Smith family of Afton Mountain Vineyards.
The Monticello Wine Company intends to honor the history of the label as a cooperative of Virginia grape growers, by looking for collaborative opportunities in Charlottesville and celebrating the grapes grown in the Monticello American Viticultural Area in the coming years.
