Thomas Jefferson was one of America’s original oenophiles. But his lifelong goal to create an American wine to match European vintages was never achieved. In the 1820s, it was a different Virginia-native– Dr. Daniel Norton — whose experimentation in his home garden would lead to a grape that still bares his name. We explore the unique story of Norton wine, and the evolution of American wine-making.
