The Vineyard

Wedding ceremonies, vow renewals, and tented receptions may be set up in the field in front of the vineyard. For evening weddings, the sun setting in the western sky makes for an exceptionally beautiful scene. Photographers may take photographs of the bride and groom among the vines prior to or after the ceremony.

The Patio

The Compass Rose Room opens onto the covered Patio through four glass French doors, allowing for an indoor-outdoor feel during the reception and also for mingling during the cocktail hour. With excellent vineyard views, the patio may also be used as a ceremony rain backup for small- to medium-sized weddings.


The Tasting Room

The Tasting Room is adjacent to the Compass Rose Room and is available after hours as a space option for your special day. A large, warm area with eclectic lighting, cozy seating, and multiple tasting bars make it an ideal location for the cocktail hour. In winter, the stone fireplace becomes a romantic ceremony backdrop for smaller weddings. The Tasting Room may also be used as a rain backup for small- to medium-sized weddings.
