WINTER 2016 Schedule

January 24, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation



Spinach & Apple Salad / Cinnamon Vinaigrette

Bigos (Polish Pork & Cabbage Stew)

Peppermint Crescent Cookies

This stew is a Polish standard.  With a combination of pork cuts and cabbage it's delicious and warming for a wintery month.  Save those leftover holiday candy canes, we'll turn them into delicious cookies that are fantastic served with hot chocolate.

February 7, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Oysters Rockefeller

Sausage Enrobed lamb Chops

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Molten Chocolate Cakes / Black Cherry Sauce

This is a fantastic menu to prepare for your sweetheart, or anytime really.  We'll wrap lamb chops in locally made lamb sausage, then serve them with the mighty sprouts for a fantastic pairing.  This is yet another take on molten chocolate cake 'cause there's never enough ways to interpret this classic. 

March 6, 2016  Sunday  11am-2pm  $68   Light Participation


Garlic & Herb Olives

Paella - Venezuela Style

Key Lime Pie

A few tasty sauteed olives are perfect to pique the appetite without being filling.  Fish, shrimp, squid, pork, sausage, mussels, clams, and lots of pimento help to create this fantastic Latin American paella.  Key lime pie with it’s tart creaminess is very pleasant on the palate after this spicy rich main dish.

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!
