Andrew Nixon

Tasting Room Manager

Andrew grew up in Cookeville, Tennessee and was a 2010 graduate from Miami University with a BA in History and Archaeology.  While attending Miami, Andrew took a Viticulture and Enology class, because of course, what college senior can turn down getting credits for drinking wine?  After moving to Charlottesville in January of 2013, he became a Tasting Room Associate here at First Colony where he began learning the ins and outs of all aspects of the wine trade.  In the Fall of 2014 Andrew was promoted to Tasting Room Manager where he can fuse his passion for great wines with his work in the tasting room to showcase First Colony Winery.
