Event Spaces

Any of the venues may be combined to accommodate your event needs and to create the most memorable experience you can imagine. Whether you envision a celebration that’s traditional or trend-setting, festive or formal, intimate or grand scale, let First Colony Winery be your host.


The Chanticleer Loft

Weddings, receptions and larger events may be held in the classic French country ambiance of the Chanticleer Loft with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and views of the vineyard. Up to 150 people can be accommodated in the Loft (120 people for a seated dinner) in this venue. Cafe lighting strung above the dance floor enhances the romantic feel.


The Terrace Gardens

Planted in the Normandy-garden style, the Terrace Gardens include our slate patio and front lawn. This location will easily accommodate weddings and other outdoor events for up to 150 people. In the evening breathtaking sunset views will make your event unforgettable. This space can be tented in the event of inclement weather (but is not included in the rental fee).


The Crush Pad

Our covered crush pad is the ultimate spot for enjoying a casual evening of dancing under the stars or a formal reception and dinner at our farm table under three massive chandeliers. A cocktail party for 50, a ceremony for 80 or a seated dinner party for 40 can enjoy the view of our newest vineyard. The Crush Pad is not available August through October due to harvest.


The Winery

For a truly unique experience consider The Winery for your special occasion. Hold your reception, corporate gathering, or dinner in the building in which the wine is made. Allow our Winemaker and Vineyard Manager to speak to your group about the processes used to create our award-winning wines. This venue is ideal for wine and food pairing stations, a seated dinner at our farm table or a reception. Note: The Winery is kept at a cool temperature and is not available August through October due to harvest.


The Vineyard

Nothing is more intimate for you and your guests than dinner in The Vineyard. White-glove service at our farm table for up to 20 of your closest family and friends will be an experience that you will always remember. Note: The Vineyard ground can be wet, soft and uneven and is not available August through October due to harvest.
