Yountville Wedding Venue
7377 St. Helena Highway
Yountville, California 94558
Brix may sit right on Napa Valley’s main highway, but once you’re inside you’re in some sort of Wine Country Dreamtime, where nothing matters but good food, good wine and the sharing of both with family and friends. (By the way, “Brix” is a term used by wine growers that refers to the percentage of sugar in ripening grapes.)
Brix is surrounded by vineyards, but behind the restaurant is a huge kitchen garden, formally laid out in the European style. Many of the fruits, vegetables and herbs used in Brix’s cuisine are grown here—you frequently see a white-garbed sous-chef in the garden, gathering ingredients for an order. Here, too, you can hold a ceremony amid the flowers and fruit, with a vista of the vineyards stretching out across the valley to the foot of the western mountains.
Intimate receptions often take place in the Oakville Room, which succeeds in being both elegant and informal. Sunflower-yellow walls and an abundance of wood details create a warm, deliciously inviting atmosphere. At the far end, a trompe l’oeil mural makes you think you’re looking out a large picture window at a quintessential Wine Country landscape. Along one side of the room, a grand mirror reflects the lovely scene on the opposite side: tall windows framing a serene view of the adjacent tree-filled patio.
The largest reception site is the Flower Garden Dining Area. Set around a fountain and bordered by an ever-changing mix of flowers, plantings and grasses that reflect the colors of the season, this al fresco space enjoys sweeping views of nearby vineyards and the Mayacamas Mountains beyond. Here you’re seated on Chiavari chairs at tables regally set with Riedel stemware, St. Andrea silverware and Villeroy & Boch bone china. The food, the service and the ambiance will make you feel totally pampered.
Smaller events find a cozy nest in the (literally!) rose-covered Cottage, which has its own private patio. Inside, pale wainscoting rises up to meet mellow ochre walls, with glass sconces providing soft illumination. The western wall, which is almost all glass, overlooks the covered patio with its garden view. As your gaze rests on the long dining table, it’s easy to visualize the toasts, the laughter, and the easy conviviality of an intimate reception or rehearsal dinner in this cheerful room.
In addition to growing a significant percentage of the produce used in the restaurant, Brix bakes their own bread and smokes its own salmon. Other ingredients are procured in season, and as fresh as possible. The wine list is graced by some of Napa’s most prestigious vintages—it annually wins the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence and the International Restaurant & Hospitality Diamond Award. (Really, if their wine list were a movie, it would star Denzel Washington, Julia Roberts and 52 others of the same star caliber.)
Warm, relaxed and intimate: if these words describe the wedding your heart desires, Brix awaits you.
