First Colony Winery

First Colony Winery is nestled in beautiful Albemarle County, the heart of Virginia wine country. Owners Heather and Bruce Spiess and Jeff Miller have created a truly spectacular winery with a focus on exceptional wines and gracious hospitality.

Located above the Tasting Room is a 2,000 square foot Loft that boasts a 30-foot exposed-beam ceiling and panoramic views of the vineyard. The warm yellow walls and aged hardwood floors create the perfect backdrop for special events such as weddings, wine dinners and showers and can be rented for private parties and group tastings.
