FALL 2016 Schedule

August 14, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Quinoa & Tomato Salad

Fresh Summer Corn Chowder

Blueberry Crostata / Lemon Ice Cream

A light refreshing heirloom tomato salad.  Corn cut fresh from the cob with potato and ham in a very light herb-y chowder.  A free-form tart with a cornmeal crust and tangy lemon ice cream we’ll make in house!

September 11, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Leek & Kale Soup

Lemon Marinated Tuna / Tomato Basil Sauce

Lemon Rice

Red Berry Summer Pudding / Malted Cream

Lemon, tomato & basil highlight fresh tuna steaks.  The soup is creamy yet has fresh kale and croutons for crunch.  The pudding of strawberries & raspberries bursts with the flavors of summer.

October 9, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


IPA Steamed Mussels

Skirt Steak Pinwheels

Freekah Salad

Chocolate Almond Cake / Rum Caramel / Blackberries

We’ll steam mussels in beer and roasted garlic, with lots of bread for mopping.  Skirt steak rolled with herbs and cheese then frilled to perfection!  A toasted green wheat grain combined with summer vegetables makes a fantastic salad.  An easy to put together dessert that is delicious.

October 30, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Rigatoni with Roasted Cauliflower

Lamb & Papaya Skewers

Eggplant Planks / Yellow Pepper Salsa

Brandied Banana Parfaits

Yes, a warm pasta dish that has crunch!  Lamb and papaya grilled together are fantastic.  Eggplant planks that are crispy on the outside and sinfully satiny inside are made better with a salsa topping.  This grownup parfait is a take on classic banana pudding.

Cooking Classes (see schedules below) - Winery kitchen cooking classes are scheduled regularly at   First Colony Winery in the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont.  Each class is designed to offer expertise with a different menu and set of cooking secrets that will lead you towards ever-greater confidence in home entertainment. These intimate participation style classes culminate with sitting down to our delicious lunch or dinner, paired with the delightful offerings of the winery’s cellar. The camaraderie is effusive as we converse with the vintner while enjoying his and our creations.                            Gift certificates are always available.

Special Events with a Class Motif provide an opportunity for the creation of an active, entertaining, and memorable occasion to celebrate your special event. Wedding Events - let the girls get away to have some fun (what the heck, bring along the boys, they may not always admit it but they have fun cooking too!)

Corporate Team Building - seeing your coworkers (yes, the bosses are included!) wearing aprons and up to their elbows in culinary creation (followed with great food and wine indulgence) can’t help but to raise the morale!

Parties Too Large for the Home - What a great way to enjoy a larger group of your friends!  The romance and mystique of a winery joined with the fun and excitement of great food and wine make for an activity that everyone will enjoy. It doesn’t get any better than this!
