Why We Like This Place

If we were to rate venues on a scale from 1 to 10, Fogarty Winery would be a 10! Located off Skyline Boulevard, it has to be one of the best places we’ve seen, not only for weddings but for private parties and corporate functions, too.

Commanding an extraordinary panorama of the bay and Peninsula, the winery sits high on a ridge in a quiet vineyard setting. As you arrive, vineyards and a picturesque pond come into view. At the top of the ridge is a large lawn, beautifully landscaped around the perimeter—a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony.

Receptions and special events are held in the Hill House and/or the outdoor Pavilion. True to its name, the former steps down the hill and is designed with incredible attention to detail, featuring a stone fireplace, fine woodwork, skylights, a wine bar and a professional kitchen. From comfortable seating indoors, as well as from the semi-glass-enclosed terrace, you can see for miles—past the vineyards all the way to the distant bay.

Adjacent to the Hill House is the Pavilion, a covered redwood deck suspended over the hillside. Calling it a “covered deck” may be something of an understatement: This 4,000-square-foot architectural treat is constructed of teal-painted columns and beams which support a peaked cedar roof inset with skylights. You have a 270-degree view of the surrounding oak-dotted hills, the Chardonnay vineyards below, and the bay. The Pavilion is ideal for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres or an open-air seated reception—no matter how hot the day is, there’s always a breeze blowing here.

For small private dinners, the Redwood Room is light and airy. It’s outfitted with custom-built “barrel” tables, handcrafted leather chairs, a wood-burning stove and full kitchen—and it affords a panoramic view of the bay. If you’d like to have a meeting in these glorious surroundings, hold it in the Board Room or the Hill House. Lovely landscaping completes the picture, enhancing every event that’s hosted at the winery. We can’t recommend this facility highly enough.
