Grow with us

Become a vigneron and help us cultivate. 
A great gift for someone who enjoys good wine and wants to learn more about the vine-to-wine process.


For a one-time fee of $250, you may adopt a row of our grapevines. Pick the varietal and row number–perhaps you have a special date or type of wine you love. For owners, Heather and Bruce, they were married on January 1 and Heather loves Chardonnay, so they have adopted row 1 of our Chardonnay.

Maybe you wish to celebrate a company/firm milestone, a college graduate, a marriage 
proposal or an important birthday! Watch the growing process, learn how to prune from 
our Vineyard Manager, and participate in harvesting your row. 


A personalized, engraved plaque on your row post identifying your row 

An annual commemorative photograph of you with your row of vines 

Two complimentary tastings every time you visit First Colony 

Two complimentary tickets to First Colony’s Harvest Festival the first year you adopt and 20% off Harvest Festival tickets in subsequent years 

Participate in harvesting your row and learn about the process used to turn your grapes into wine 

15% discount on wine and gift shop items* 

15% discount on online wine purchases*

Recognition on First Colony’s website as a participant in the Adopt-A-Vine Program 

Subscription to our quarterly newsletter, Vine Times, featuring important information about our wines and vines; notes from the Winemaker, General Manager, or Vineyard Manager; food/wine pairings, recipes; and much more
