The Barboursville vineyards are cultivated around the boxwood gardens and ruins of the neo-Palladian manor house designed by Thomas Jefferson for Virginia Governor Barbour in 1814.
The present vineyards were established in 1976 by the Zonin family who has a long tradition of winemaking in the Veneto region of Italy. The Zonin family at Barboursville became the first vinifera winegrowers in the Monticello Viticultural Area since Thomas Jefferson.
