Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A passion for wine, art, and community is at the heart of this welcoming, family-run winery. Nestled on a hillside in the heart of Sonoma County, the 155-acre estate is blessed by truly spectacular panoramas, with sweeping views of vineyards, verdant pastures, oak-shaded groves, and the Russian River Valley beyond.
  • Say "I do" on the Poetry Terrace, which is shaded by colorful crepe myrtles and backed by a picturesque wine country vista (sunset ceremonies, as you might imagine, are particularly remarkable here). After the vows, enjoy estate-bottled wines, champagne and hors d'oeuvres on the veranda while admiring the views, which include the venue's iconic two-story LOVE sculpture.
  • As dusk descends, pass through grand double doors to the sophisticated Vineroom, where an oversized faux fireplace and Dutch chandeliers add charm, and the dark bamboo dance floor beckons. Alternately, set up a band on al fresco or bring the party downstairs to the Nagasawa Cellar, with its bohemian lounge furniture. With the city lights winking in the distance and the moon cresting over the hillside, it's absolutely glorious.
