Big Cork Vineyards, a winery in the greater Washington, D.C. area, invites couples to celebrate a vintage country wedding. At this winery, couples will find a working vineyard with rows upon rows of grapevines. There is also an elegant indoor location with bright chandeliers and barrels of wine.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can invite up to 200 guests to their wedding at the Big Cork Vineyards. Ceremonies can be held in locations across the property at this charming vineyard. With the grapevines as the backdrop, these ceremonies are natural and breathtaking. In the distance, mountain peaks rise up to meet the blue sky. In addition to ceremony chairs, the venue provides a standalone door in a frame which stands at the start of the aisle. There are also multiple reception spots for couples to choose from. The tasting room, with its metallic and wooden barrels, makes the perfect location to set up long reception tables. Overhead, white chandeliers in a twisting design light the room. The building also has a patio space outside for a couple’s reception or cocktail hour. This includes tables partially in the shade and partially out in the sun, or — as twilight settles in — under the stars.

Services Offered

At this modern winery, couples can have both their wedding ceremony and reception. For couples who want to use the winery but have a different plan in mind for their wedding day, the venue is open to hosting bridal showers and engagement parties as well. The venue offers the following services and event items:

  • Bridal suite
  • Glassware
  • Liability insurance
  • Parking
  • Tables

Location

This venue sits in Rohrersville, Maryland. It is located between Gathland State Park and the Potomac River. Only a 15-minute drive from Harpers Ferry and a 27-minute drive from Frederick, there is plenty surrounding this private vineyard. Couples can also make the 80-minute drive from this venue to downtown Washington, D.C. Out-of-town guests can travel to the Dulles International Airport and drive 55 minutes to reach the winery.

    Amazing venue and experiene

    I would highly recommend using Big Cork Vineyards as your wedding venue. We had an amazing experience from my first contact with Meagan, the venue coordinator. The process working with her was nearly seamless. We had a lot of back and forth on the day-of the wedding about rain/backup plans, and Meagan was always willing to work with us. Fortunately, we were able to have our ceremony and reception outside and our guests couldn't have been more amazed by the scenery. We got so many compliments on our wedding being elegant, and I know it had a lot to do with our choice of venue. You won't regret it!

    Best Wedding Venue!

    We couldn't be happier having our October wedding at Big Cork! It was the perfect place to make an entire long weekend celebration that was the ideal mix of beautiful, relaxed, and functional. We paid a small upcharge to reserve the Big House (one of the best perks of the venue!) starting on Thursday, where it served as lodging for the bridal party for a long weekend of festivities. It was also where we hosted a casual rehearsal dinner on Friday night and post-wedding brunch on Sunday morning. It saved us time and money and enabled us to see (and feed) our guests the entire weekend. The venue itself is also stunning, even in late October! We opted to do an outdoor ceremony which was cold but totally worth it, and then semi-outdoor reception under the tents which have heaters, making it pretty darn comfortable. Meagan from Big Cork was so fun to work with, and has so much experience hosting weddings here that she was able to make tons of helpful suggestions for our day. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the winery is and how they enjoyed having a "home base" for the weekend! We can't recommend Big Cork enough!

    Best venue ever!

    Big Cork hosted our wedding in October 2021. The venue was fantastic and everything we wished for in our wedding. In addition, Big Cork has some of the best wine in Maryland! Meagan at Big Cork was excellent to work with and helped interface with us and the wedding coordinator to make sure the event went perfectly. A little known secret is that when you rent Big Cork for a wedding weekend, you also have the “Big House.” The Big House is a gorgeous house on the side of the Big Cork estate. The Big House easily supported ~40 people for our rehearsal dinner and was a great area for the bridal party to get ready on the wedding day. Highly recommend Big Cork, Meagan, and the Big Cork team!
