Also see . . . Adolph Russow and the Monticello Wine Company. “The Monticello Wine Company was created as a cooperative to encourage and provide a consistent market for Albemarle’s grape growers. Many of Charlottesville’s most prominent citizens took stock in the company. In the interest of both producers and consumers and for the public well-being, the wine company’s goal was to make pure and healthful, low-alcohol table wines of medium grade. They pursued Jefferson’s dream of creating an affordable table wine that would lead to temperate drinking habits.” (Submitted on April 16, 2009.)
