Livermore Wedding Venue
1828 Wetmore Road
Livermore, California 94550
Versatility, Old World charm, modern amenities, and spectacular vineyard views are all part of the event experience at Las Positas Vineyards, a premier 20-acre, family-owned wine-producing estate in the heart of the Livermore wine country. Shaded by heritage oaks and framed by rows of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Nebbiolo and Chardonnay grapevines, this alluring Mediterranean-style winery and event complex will wrap you and your guests in a warmth and ease that seems crafted from decades of hospitality.
Festivities can unfold indoors and out. The key here is the way activities flow effortlessly from one area to the next. The Vista View Patio, as the name implies, offers a panoramic look at the pastoral surround—a compelling start for any celebration. The patio area, adjoining broad lawn, and vine-covered double arbor make it ideal for an outdoor ceremony or a green setting for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. There’s room for a DJ or musicians to set up, and well-chosen accents like granite-topped oak barrels and other tasteful outdoor furnishings add to its appeal.
And speaking of appeal, you and your guests will certainly be drawn to the cool indoor spaces. The Tasting Room is ultra-inviting with its Spanish tile floors, handsome wood accents, and custom-designed granite-topped bar. It also affords views of the picturesque winemaker’s cottage and picnic ground—and it showcases a vitrine full of awards for the property’s prize-winning vintages. Across the broad hall, similarly floored in Spanish tile, the Vintage Dining Room features a beautiful banquet table, tapestry-upholstered chairs, and glass doors that open onto the Vista View Patio. The adjacent Main Event Room, with its lustrous wood floor, high beamed ceiling and enormous custom-finished chandeliers, opens onto the Patio, too, and is an exquisite space for an indoor ceremony, dining and dancing or just about any other gathering. In addition, the building houses an immaculate, stainless steel commercial kitchen that is suitable for exhibition and fully equipped to serve up any of the mouthwatering multi-course offerings from the winery’s all-inclusive catering menus. Equally spotless and as gleaming as everything else at this location, the beguilingly lit barrel room becomes a very special backdrop for photos.
And don’t forget the well-appointed winemaker’s cottage! It provides a luxurious place of repose for the bride as well as a grand private kitchen with granite countertops, island, and top-of-the-line appliances. The kitchen’s open floor plan embraces a roomy dining area that includes a large fireplace and private patio with picnic area access that makes it suitable for smaller business or social functions.
Although it’s very high end, inspiring, and extremely affordable, we suspect what you’ll find most impressive about Las Positas Vineyards is the passion and creativity that the owners and their service-oriented staff bring to every occasion: They treat your guests as their guests, and are devoted to ensuring an absolutely perfect party experience for all.
