Founded in 1873, the Monticello Wine Company was considered the largest winery in the South. [1] The company shut down with the onset of Prohibition. Virginia went dry at the stroke of midnight on November 1, 1916. The whole country followed on January 16, 1920.[2]

The Monticello Wine Company House, one of Charlottesville's individually protected properties, is located at 212 Wine Street.[3].
