An Evening with the Winemaker - A Four-Course, Wine-Paired Dinner Party

  • First Colony Winery 1650 Harris Creek Rd Charlottesville, VA 22902 United States (map)

Join us on November 10th for an intimate dinner party hosted by Winemaker Gavin Baum.

The evening will start with a welcome toast of our 2017 Riesling Reserve and passed appetizers, so guests can mix and mingle with Gavin and other attendees.

We will then be seated for our dinner, prepared by Chef Terre Sisson of Charlottesville Wine & Culinary, and paired with our 2015 Chardonnay Estate Reserve and our 2016 Meritage.

The night will conclude with a rich dessert paired with our newest vintage of Thatch (our Port-style dessert wine).
