About our winery:

First Colony Winery is nestled at the foothills of the Blue Ridge, the heart of Virginia Wine Country. The only winery in North America with a traditional thatched roof, First Colony celebrates the rich historical traditions of Virginia\'s settlers while embracing the innovations of modern winemaking with unique, award-winning blends. Open for tastings seven days a week, visit First Colony for breathtaking sunsets, charming Old World gardens, meticulously manicured vineyards, and newly renovated tasting room and event facilities. The warm hospitality and elegant atmosphere will make you feel like kicking back and staying awhile.

Three things to love about us:

We are located in Thomas Jefferson\'s backyard, where wine was first established in the New World.We are a small-production, boutique winery creating high-quality and unique wines every year.We continue to produce award-winning wines year after year.

What makes us unique:

As far as we know, we have the only winery with an authentic thatched roof crafted by one of two master thatchers in the US.
