When Thomas Jefferson stated, "We could in the United States make as great a variety of wines as are made in Europe, not exactly the same kinds, but doubtless as good," he could have been talking about the future of America itself. Set against the backdrop of Jefferson's Monticello, the great wine regions of France, the Napa Valley and the historic Virginia landscape The Cultivated Life: Thomas Jefferson and Wine guides the viewer on a visual journey of the life of the founding father of American viticulture.
