Spring 2014  Schedule

April 13, 2014  Sunday  11am-2pm  $65   Light Participation

Southwest Tart / Herb Crust

Chiles Rellenos Quiche

Spicy Beef Salad

Ice Chipped Cantaloupe with Honey Mint Cream

Flavors of the Southwest US abound.  A delicious herb crust cradles a cheesy tart, then a quiche that forms it’s own crust accompanied by a long marinade but quick cook beef salad.  The cantaloupe finishes it all with cool refreshment.

May 18, 2014  Sunday  11am-2pm  $65   Light Participation

Pistachio Stuffed Mushrooms

Grillades & Baked Cheese Grits

Stir Fried Spring Greens

Rhubarb Panna Cotta

Grillades are a combination of pounded round steak, a caramelly roux, and tomatoes cooked into a saucy dish that pairs perfectly with firm grits.  Tender Spring greens are cut into shoestrings then cooked crisp tender and seasoned to showcase their best qualities.  A creamy, tangy, tart, pudding finale!

June 22, 2014  Sunday  11am-2pm  $65   Light Participation

Spring Pea Dip / Herbed Pita Triangles

Cedar Planked Salmon

Hash Brown, Asparagus & Brie Wedges

Fruit Salad / Orange Ginger Syrup

Peas from the garden or freezer become a splendid dip.  Salmon with a snappy marinade is lightly smoked right on a piece of cedar on our grill.  We’ll shred some potatoes then make a fantastic potato, asparagus, and cheese cake.

Please call 434-979-7105 to join us

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!
