Join us for an intimate and delicious five-course meal hosted by our Winemaker, Gavin Baum. The Blue Mountain Grill has created a Creole-inspired menu that will delight and that pairs beautifully with First Colony wines. Throughout the evening, Gavin will share details, descriptions and personal anecdotes of each wine. Attendees will receive evening-only discounts on wine purchases and will be among the first to try as-yet-unreleased wines, including our 2017 Riesling Reserve and 2016 Meritage
