The Genius of Jefferson

Charlottesville, VA | September 25-57, 2015

In September 2015, Aspen Across America and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation partnered to create an extraordinary weekend set against the backdrop of Jefferson’s magnificent estate Monticello in its autumnal splendor. This excursion offered participants unprecedented access to Jefferson's private world alongside in-depth discussions with gardeners, chefs, historians, wine-makers, and architects steeped in the Founding Father's legacy.
