Monticello? Is it me you're looking for?

There's a lot about Thomas Jefferson we don't really know. One thing's for sure though, he was quite the wine connoisseur.

Thomas Jefferson was a pretty amazing dude. He did so many things for this country that a lot of people don't even know about. For instance, he invented electricity, the light bulb and time travel.

He was also really honest. Like, so honest that people called him "Honest Tom." One time he chopped down a cherry tree, and when asked if he had done it he replied, "I cannot tell a lie. I did. And also yes, those jeans do make you look fat."

Perhaps his greatest contribution to society, however, is his Monticello Vineyards Napa Valley Rose of Syrah. You see, he was inspired by the fruit of that felled tree to make a wine with a lovely pink hue. And he so loved its freshness and balance that he once proclaimed, "Wine from Oak Knoll is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

I know you're skeptical. I was too. How could a man from the 1700s produce a well-balanced wine from a completely different side of the country in 2012? TIME TRAVEL, remember? I know. Just let it all sink in.
