Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With the look of an opulent Tuscan villa and an innovative approach to luxury and epicurean delights, this elegant winery and resort may be the quintessential embodiment of the Wine Country lifestyle. Artfully incorporating ingredients from local organic farms, the rustic and naturally flavorful cuisine—provided by the award-winning on-site restaurant—promises to be as inspiring as the surroundings.
  • Several romantic ceremony sites dot the lush grounds, each equally alluring. The Vineyard Deck and Terrace are both tucked among the vines, with sprawling views of the resort’s nine acres of grape-cloaked hillsides and a cabana-lined pool. Larger events can be held out on the sun-splashed Fountain Courtyard, with its own outdoor fireplace, or on the sweeping Village Lawn, the centerpiece of the resort.
  • Receptions unfold in one of two appealing, Italian-inspired ballrooms, each bracketed by long loggias that bathe them in soft northern natural light, and prefunction areas that face out onto the resort’s inner courtyards. For something truly unique, celebrate in the Estate Cave, a manmade marvel carved into the hillside that evokes the warm glow and dramatic ambiance of Old World Florentine wine caves.
