Barren Ridge Vineyards is a family-owned winery located on a high ridge in Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley, that is ideal for both rehearsal dinners and weddings. Our event spaces provide many options for your celebration, all featuring spectacular views and an atmosphere of rustic elegance.

The Tasting Room is a cozy, intimate room with a large stone fireplace, reclaimed wood ceiling and beams, soft lighting, and a spacious bar, perfect for a cocktail hour. The wall opposite the fireplace looks into our wine barrel room.

The Audrey Blackford Room is our spacious ballroom, located on the second floor of the winery, featuring a vaulted ceiling, access to a deck overlooking the vineyard, and seating for up to 150 guests.

The Lawn is a grassy area adjacent to the vineyard, surrounded by breathtaking mountain views, perfect for a ceremony among the vines.

The Patio is easily accessible from both the Tasting Room and the Audrey Blackford Room and faces west over the vineyard, providing a gorgeous backdrop for your ceremony or reception. The Patio offers beautiful landscaping, a pergola with globe string lights, and a stone fireplace.

    Gorgeous venue for a really reasonable price

    Barren Ridge has spectacular wines and beautiful views, a rare gem that has wines for many palates. Their grounds are gorgeous, settled between two mountain ranges and the upstairs banquet room has a deck which takes full advantage. The vineyards could not be lovelier and the price beyond reasonable with compassionate and kind owners who really value their customers.

    Perfect place

    Vicky and I were not looking for a big elaborate wedding. Instead we wanted something small and meaningful for us. I work full time and so does she so our weekends are the times that we have to go tour sites and stuff. Barren Ridge was our first stop…..and final, lol. I had spoken with Angela over the phone several times and she is great to talk to. She was very flexible with times to meet. When we went to the vineyard and actually met, we got a tour of the vineyard and a little history. The view was amazing from the cabin as the vineyard is nestled between two mountains. There is a multitude of options for pictures and backgrounds. We chose to stay here instead of looking everywhere else. The main thing was that we didn’t get a sales pitch. The whole, “this is what we have to offer, and this is what we can do” speech. We felt this was more personal. Angela should drop the “a” from the end of her name because she truly is an Angel. Her and husband Rob are great people that we will most definitely go back and see and drink wine with.

    Barren Ridge Vineyards's reply:

    Dear Andre!
    We truly enjoyed you and Vicky and your wedding party a lot! Great, wonderful and salt of the earth people you all are! I wish you all the best and yes, you are part of the Barren Ridge family now, our doors are wide open for you all! Thanks for sharing your day with us!

    Look no further than BRV!

    My husband and I had to reschedule our wedding three times due to COVID and were under a time crunch: an upcoming military deployment. We decided LESS THAN A MONTH BEFORE to move our wedding to Barren Ridge. This was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. In my humble opinion, you will not find a better venue than Barren Ridge Vineyard. Not just because of the unbelievably gorgeous property, the delicious wines and beautifully spaces, but mainly because of Angela and Rob.

    Let’s first talk about the gorgeous property, we got married out on the beautiful patio. All our guests were able to sit outside on comfortable patio chairs with a view of the vineyard as they watched us exchange vows. Stunning. (You can also get married out in the vineyard, but due to August heat we choose not to).

    Next the delicious wine. Go to a tasting. AMAZING. Half our guests bought bottles as they left, they loved the wine that much.

    Beautiful spaces. The tasting room was perfect for a grab and take cheese board (we had them individually wrapped for grab and go COVID style) and bar. The room upstairs is spacious, inviting and gorgeous. We were able to have a dinner, cut the cake and do the first dances with plenty of space to social distance. The room is understated in a way that allows the architecture and the vineyard to shine. I hate over the top venues, but this room matches the décor of a vineyard perfectly. Simple flower arrangements and you’re done! Rob and Angela had different sized tables and other décor options which made setting up the room an easy feat.

    Now on to Rob and Angela. When I met them, I will be honest, I was in tears. My future husband and I were leaving for Japan for three years in September and if I didn’t pull off an August wedding, I wouldn’t be having a wedding. When I say these two LEAPT into action, I’m not kidding. They leapt! With their unbelievable amount of help we pulled together a wedding in a month. Armed with just a few sketches of seating arrangements and a small number of vendors Angela and Rob pulled off our miracle. I got the most beautiful wedding of my dreams. I also had a lot of COVID “demands” like all the tables with disposable water bottles, silverware and all food in to go containers. They helped make that work with the caterer. They allowed us to play music over the blue tooth speaker. The BRV team is amazing.

    When you get married at Barren Ridge, you choose to have Barren Ridge a part of your life forever. You open Barren Ridge wine every year on your anniversary. You have your birthday parties on the patio. You bring your kids on a picnic in the vines. When our original wedding was canceled, I was devastated. Little did I know I would still have the wedding of my dreams. It was better than the dream one I imagined (even with COVID). Our wedding day was so perfect. Barren Ridge is a place I will call home and a place I will keep coming back to, year after year. We are so lucky to have gotten married here. If you choose BRV, it will be the best wedding decision you ever make (after maybe the groom lol).

    (p.s. If you are planning a microwedding, Angela and Rob have been doing them since August 2020. They are experts now. Our wedding spread 0 cases of COVID and that’s in no small part to the diligence of the BRV team)
