We had wanted to have our wedding in a vineyard setting, and were starting to look at other options since we couldn't seem to find one within budget, distance, timeframe, etc. Planning our wedding within about a 4-month window, we were starting to consider other options, and Bodega came up! We couldn't have wished for a better venue! Doug and Brenda were very accommodating, and felt almost like family by the end of our wedding! I sent multiple emails/communication on their days off, expecting to hear back during working hours, but they responded generally within the same day! (and were very understanding and patient with the rush and last-minute details!) The location is beautiful! It was a little bit of a distance being in the country, but would not have been able to have the feel we wanted if it wasn't, either. We received so many positive comments and compliments, and a few of our guests considered holding their wedding or other event there, too! It is hard to rate most things as perfect, but Bodega definitely was, and far exceeded our expectations!!Sent on 11/12/2019

My husband and I got married here on 6/08/2019 and had the BEST day of our lives!! From the moment we contacted Doug and Brenda to set up a meeting to see the venue, they were nothing but wonderful! They answered all of our questions and were happy to talk with us even when we would just stop by! Our wedding went off without a hitch and all my guest commented on the beauty of the venue and how delicious the wine was. I would recommend Bodega a thousand times over!Sent on 07/15/2019

Brenda and Doug could not have been more amazing to work with. They were very accommodating to all of our needs, from changing the date of our wedding, helping set up the reception, to every other need I had. Brenda went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, and made suggestions on how to set things up. They went above and beyond what I expected from a venue. She even let us borrow some of her things from the winery that we forgot at home.Sent on 10/24/2018
The winery is absolutely beautiful. You will not need to do a lot of decorating, which is very nice if you are on a budget. The building itself is so beautiful. We only had a few decorations here and there and centerpieces. Everyone at the reception could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was.
We had to use the restored barn for our ceremony instead of outside due to rain (which I was hesitant, maybe a little whiny about at first) but once I saw it set up, I couldn't have been happier. The barn is very charming. (if you love barns like I do).
I would highly recommend using this location for your wedding!!!! They made our wedding more amazing than I imagined.
We've been involved in over 300 weddings and worked at countless venues. I can tell you we have not worked with any venue operators or owners that are as invested in the success of their couples weddings, receptions and marriages. They truly care and it shows. Yes Bodega Victoriana is unique, spacious and beautiful, but the owners Doug and Brenda are what really puts Bodega Victoriana over the top in unsurpassed value. It's also true they make amazing wine.
