Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 280-acre resort melds its California Rancho history with modern amenities to create a four-star retreat without a hint of stuffiness. Delectable menus highlight the best that Wine Country cuisine has to offer, showcasing the freshest, locally sourced ingredients—including produce from the on-property garden—and the on-site spa boasts luxe treatments to pamper you pre- and post-celebration.
  • Say "I do" on the Aragon Lawn, an expansive, fairy-tale garden lushly bordered by white roses and trees, where a long center aisle leads to a trellised arbor. Other intimate ceremony sites, like the North and Valencia Lawns, feature arbors, white roses, or even a dramatic stone backdrop, while The Promenade, a gracious brick courtyard, boasts 180-degree fairway panoramas.
  • The Santiago Courtyard is accented by graceful olive trees and a magnificent Italian fountain, with an adjacent ballroom making it easy to flow right into your reception. Or, start with cocktails in the Aragon Foyer, where arched glass doors open to the terrace, then follow with dinner and dancing in the stately Aragon Ballroom, which boasts honey-toned walls, a high ceiling, and gorgeous pendant chandeliers.
