First Colony Winery was an absolute dream to work with. We had a destination wedding, and they were so helpful and accommodating. Lia, the special events coordinator, is amazing and will make any bride feel at ease.

I had the pleasure of providing my DJ services at First Colony Winery for a late October wedding, which was amazing. The venue has ample parking, easy loading/unloading, and allows you several different great areas on the property. Not to mention this venue offers a lot of great scenery for photos. The staff here at first colony were accommodating from start to finish and I look forward to working with them in the future!!

We absolutely love working at First Colony! They are responsive, attentive and always on the ball, And the wine is amazing! The client always comes first here and they are assured a happy day!

Beautiful Winery for a Wedding! And Great Wines too! Highly Recommend!
