About Us

Facilities and Capacity

Up to 120 guests can join couples at this venue for their wedding celebration. Ceremonies take place on the lawn in front of the vineyard. Facing the west, this location offers gorgeous opportunities for evening ceremonies with photographs as the sun casts an orange glow over the sky. On the day of the wedding, couples can use the rows of vines, the barrel room, and the rest of the rolling property for portraits of the couple and wedding party. The Compass Rose Banquet Room is the ideal reception space for couples at this venue. It includes high ceilings and dazzling chandeliers with elegantly decorative beads dangling from the bronze fixtures. Stunning cork accent walls are the perfect complement to the rows of barrels in the production room behind glass, giving the space an authentic winery feeling. The French doors in this room lead to a covered patio that may be used as overflow space or a cocktail reception venue. As the night wears on couples may use the Tasting Room, only available after hours. This large area feels cozy thanks to a stone fireplace that serves as the perfect indoor ceremony spot in the event of inclement weather.
