Sorority &
Fraternity Events

First Colony welcomes sorority and fraternity date functions, formals, and parent events. The winery is only a 15-20 minute drive from the University of Virginia and our parking lot has ample space for buses. Sorority and fraternity events may be held between 6:00 pm and midnight; however, outdoor amplified music must end by 10:00 pm. An approved caterer must be hired for the duration of the event and only First Colony wine may be served (an approved caterer with an ABC license may serve other types of alcohol). Security personnel (1 per 75 guests) must be hired for sorority and fraternity events.

Venue Choices

The winery offers several venue choices. Events can be held in The Tavern Room, The Tasting Room, The Loft, Terrace Gardens, The Winery or on The Crush Pad. For a truly unique experience, a rustic dinner in the vineyard will make your celebration unforgettable. 

Make your event truly special by hosting it at
an unforgettable location.
