America's Forgotten Grape: The Wild Vine
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.
