Garré Vineyard & Winery is a bit like a small village—a charming one surrounded by grapevines. One of the Livermore Valley’s original wineries, this gem, with its Italian Wine Country style, has always drawn a crowd. Maybe it’s because of the café on the premises, the park-like setting, the Tasting Room, or the jazz they serve up with the food and the bocce ball.

That popularity has increased even more with Garré’s Martinelli Event Center, a private facility located just a short drive up the hill from the winery. Set on an elevated vineyard, it’s a grand Hacienda-style venue with wrought-iron gates, a bell tower, and palm trees at the entrance. The ballroom, which has been designed for both beauty and versatility, features a vaulted beamed ceiling, wood wainscoting and accents, high windows, and contemporary chandeliers. The building’s stone-paved inner courtyard with fireplace and fountain is ideal for a bar setup and appetizers, or for a reception under the stars. A nearby ceremony site is not only surrounded by vines, but also offers views of vineyard-laced rolling hills. The entire facility—including an enormous patio and lawn, an exquisite bridal suite, and a comfortable groom’s dressing area—is laid out in a way that allows for seamless transitions from ceremony to hors d’oeuvres to dining and dancing.

Back down the hill on the winery property is Bella Rosa, Garré’s stunning new event center, and the Staging Area, another gorgeous wedding site. Old-fashioned 19th-century streetlamps line the paths and illuminate the area at night. One walkway leads up to a small stage bordered by flowerbeds and Italian cypress and backed by rows of Cabernet vines—it’s a lovely spot for a ceremony. Just steps away, the event center features a full bar, hardwood floors, distinctive chandeliers, and vineyard views through large arched picture windows. It’s an incredibly flexible space for a reception, and a marvelous place to sample the masterful pairings of food and wine recommended and prepared by their Executive Chef and highly trained culinary staff. Two full-size bocce ball courts that are lit at night offer a before- and after-dinner diversion, adding to the Old World ambiance.

Tours of Garré Winery’s event sites are by appointment only. We suggest that to really experience what Garré is like, make a reservation for lunch or dinner, too. That way you’ll be able to stroll the grounds, take in the views, and taste their award-winning food and wine.
