Jolene Family Winery is just at the outskirts of Richmond, however it is a perfect addition to this list. It is located in New Kent County next to the Tom Brooke Lake providing spectacular views. The winery is also unique in the fact that it has a true greenhouse for you to exchange vows in, while creating the perfect intimate atmosphere. One thing to remember though; the greenhouse is a true greenhouse. So, it can get a bit warm. However, they do provide air conditioning. If you are looking to get married outside, there are accommodations for that decision, as well. The family owned venue also provides a gorgeous production room that serves as a modern, industrial backdrop for the perfect reception. You can check out the blog post for them here.
