In the late 1700’s, Philip Mazzei was a close friend of Thomas Jefferson. His writings were influential to Jefferson in his time before taking office and is said to have been an inspiration when the Declaration of Independence was being penned. Later in his life, Mazzei was invited by Jefferson to plant the first vineyards at Jefferson’s estate in Monticello.
