A home once named "Barboursville" is now just an impressive set of ruins on the property of the Barboursville Vineyards near Charlottesville. It belonged to James Barbour, a former U.S. Senator, U.S. Secretary of War, and Virginia Governor. The house was designed by Thomas Jefferson. Barbour's friend and political ally. The ruin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in the summer hosts plays and concerts. Jefferson's design mastery is still evident in what is left of this once magnificent home.
We are quite proud to be a Virginia company, and what better way to celebrate this than by celebrating Virginia!
