Acquaviva was the most amazing wedding venue we could have asked for. From the beautiful views of getting married in a vineyard, to the comfort of working with such a great coordinator (Suzanne), we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
First off, the venue is absolutely beautiful. The ceremony overlooked the vineyard and the entire property was gorgeous. The layout of the venue was perfect. We had 185 guests, it was spacious enough to where nobody felt crammed but the whole setting still felt intimate. The food was also FANTASTIC! All of our guests have continued to rave about how delicious it was for weeks after the wedding!
The best part about Acquaviva was working with Suzanne, the events coordinator. She was so incredibly helpful, responsive and comforting. During the stressful time that is wedding planning, Suzanne answered all of our questions very quickly, met with us about a million extra times and put us at ease with the whole planning process!Sent on 11/13/2019

Best Day Ever!
Acquaviva is a dream come true. This venue has been extremely accommodating though out the entire wedding process. When we first visited the site back in 2019 Suzanne left an everlasting positive impression on us. The only reason we did not select the venue at that time was distance. We were looking for a venue closer to our guests so they would not have to travel far. After rescheduling our wedding several times due to Covid we decided to give Suzanne a call to see if we could be accommodated. Covid -19 became our events blessing in disguise as our wedding was more than we could have ever wish or imagined.Sent on 05/04/2021
Suzanne helped us plan our entire wedding in just a couple of months. During the cocktail hour we were brought appetizers to the awesome bridal room, as we took photos and prepared to line up for announcements.
Every staff member bent over backwards for us with organized, professional and impeccable service.
Our guests, have been raving about the food and wine. This is not an exaggeration, no overstatements here. In our opinion, you have not lived until you try their food. Several of our family members told us they were purchasing the wine and coming back for dinner on their own.
It’s been several weeks and I am still thinking about the mouth watering dishes, and the savory nocchi that we are dying to have the vodka sauce recipe for. The pastries were so so so good. The late night brick oven pizza is the best pizza I have had by far.
Even a few of the guests that arrived late were provided top notch service . We absolutely felt like royalty. Aquaviva proved to be a benchmark for service on our wedding day.
Beautiful design and care has been placed into every detail of this business. Even the design of the entry door has so much detail and art to it. The grounds are breathtaking. The guest house looking over the winery that we spent the night at was immaculate and gorgeous.
The winery is flexible, clean and service oriented. You will not go wrong choosing this winery to host your special day. Our guests are as impressed and happy as we are. We cannot thank Acquaviva Winery enough for making our day so special and amazing, which we will remember and cherish forever.

I went to look at this vineyard and fell in love with it. Reminded me of being in Italy. The family is amazing and made us more than comfortable. It felt like home is how I can best describe it. Talking with Suzanne and Joe and the family was what made us decide to have our wedding there. It wasn’t a meeting it was like Sunday dinner. For those of you who are Italian you will know what I mean. They are so flexible and so easy to work with. I couldn’t be happier with our decision.Sent on 07/16/2018
