About 12 Ridges Vineyard

Located in Vesuvius, VA, 12 Ridges is an elegant Vineyard open for weddings. Sitting atop a mountain, this property is the state’s highest altitude vineyard and tasting room. A distinctive venue, it encompasses both indoor and outdoor event spaces. The property’s panoramic views and mountaintop setting offer a breathtaking photo backdrop of the central Virginian countryside. The Blue Ridge Mountains are very visible, welcoming the awe of your guests. A family-owned Vineyard, it was previously known as Skylark Farm.

The team at 12 Ridges Vineyard are patiently waiting for their vines to mature. In the meantime, their sommeliers have cultivated a broad range of cool climate wines for visitors to test out. Adding another feather to their cap, the vineyard has been selling Fraser Fir trees for the festive seasons for decades. The city of Buena Vista is just 40 minutes away from the vineyard by car, perfect for those that want to continue exploring. If you have loved ones who like to spend time in nature, the breathtaking Shenandoah National Park is ready for adventure. For those visiting from out of town who need a place to stay, there are hotels as close as 20 minutes away.

We excel in offering elopements, engagements, proposals, engagement photography sessions, bridal showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and small gatherings up to 20 people.

At 12 Ridges Vineyard, we offer an intimate tasting room, cozy garden area, or the picturesque hilltop, where you can say your vows in front of the mountains. For the ceremony, you are invited to the flower-filled garden, which also features convenient access to both the hilltop and the tasting room. The hilltop is offered for ceremonies. More intimate gatherings can enjoy the cozy feel of the tasting room (when it is open), which welcomes celebrations. For further support throughout such a busy time, the venue requires you have a wedding coordinator on hand.

    12 Ridges - Dream Wedding!

    My husband and I got married at 12 Ridges at the end of last summer - a dream come true!!! The vineyard was just opening to the public so we had the honor of being one of their first weddings. I was impressed and delighted by how graciously they worked with us as we explored all of the many onsite options for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, pictures and more! With all of the spectacular views and natural beauty, we loved that any choice we made would be beautiful! The 12 Ridges staff also helped us as we explored various wedding vendors and delivery/set-up dates. Additionally, there was plenty of parking for our guests and the 2 transport buses we hired.. . My family, fiancé and I made numerous trips to the property and fell more in-love with it at every visit.

    On the wedding day, my bridesmaids and I spent the whole morning at the venue in the bridal suite and loved it. There are two stations ready for hair & makeup artists which made getting ready so easy. There is a private bathroom, private and discreet outdoor access, lots of mirrors, and it’s wedding dress ready!

    Our wedding ceremony took place in the garden (magical, with a low stone wall on 2 sides, white hydrangeas blooming, as well as views of the mountains), which allowed our 200+ guest wedding to feel intimate. The guests then transitioned through the garden gateway, up the hill to a picturesque cocktail hour with breathtaking 360 degree views. Many of my friends have said it was the most beautiful cocktail hour they have seen! We saw several Christmas card photos the following winter from that view :) I loved that there was enough space for our guests to transition between different areas on the property.

    The tent reception on the deck was perfect. Many other venues recommend renting a floor to go with your tent… but we didn’t need to! We were able to maintain the outdoor views and summer breeze with the luxury of indoor bathrooms, flooring, a stage area, and plenty of outlets! They even have an indoor area for the band to hangout and relax. So ideal!

    My husband and I live in Charlottesville so we are aware how many venues are out there… but you should go with this one! I have endless good things to say. We could not have picked a better venue with kinder people than 12 Ridges. Highly, highly recommend!

    Couldn't Have Hoped For More...

    We couldn’t have hoped for a more perfect setting for our daughter’s wedding! The views are breathtakingly spectacular! There are so many beautiful site options for the ceremony and cocktail hour and reception! The large deck and ease of set-up...fantastic!! The bridal room perfect!

    Every vendor was effusive in their compliments regarding the venue and their confidence that 12 Ridges is the best new wedding venue - they can’t wait to serve there again! Thank you, THANK YOU!

    How honored we feel to have been the first of what is sure to be many beautiful weddings at 12 Ridges Vineyard!
