Ceremonies in the Vineyard
Wedding ceremonies are set in the field in front of the vineyard. 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.
Receptions in the Compass Rose Banquet Room
The Compass Rose Banquet Room provides just the right ambiance for your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner. A large, open space seating up to 110 guests, it boasts high ceilings, elegant lighting, and access to the covered Patio through multiple French doors. The vibe is classically rustic and your guests will enjoy the experience of being in the heart of a boutique Virginia winery. The glass barrel room window and walls covered in cork add striking wine-related elements. The Compass Rose Banquet Room also has an adjacent catering kitchen, making for effortless and functional service.
Cocktails on the Patio and Lawn
Our expansive patio and lawn provide ample room for your guests to mingle during the cocktail hour. There’s room for cornhole or other lawn games, if desired! Guests will enjoy the view and the promise of a stunning sunset over the vineyard. The Compass Rose Room opens onto the covered Patio through four glass French doors, allowing for an indoor-outdoor feel during the reception.
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.
Ready Rooms for the Couple and Bridal Party
Upstairs we have two spacious rooms for the couple and bridal party to get ready. The bridal suite offers ample seating, an oversized floor mirror, as well as a beauty bar where maids can do hair and makeup. The groom’s room, just down the hall, is a rustic space for gents to gather prior to the ceremony.
