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.
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.

Awesome venue in the Metro Area!!!
My daughter & son in law were married here the beginning of September 2018. The venue is beautiful, we were able to get a caterer of our choice. Doug & Brenda were so awesome to work with and had a lot of helpful suggestions. We were able to bring in several props for the wedding ceremony (reveal doors) and donut board for the reception with out any problem. We rented it for the entire weekend which proved to be the best option for us, as far as setting and and clean up. We want to say Thank You to Doug & Brenda for making the kids day the best it could of ever been. Curt & Sandy

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Doug and Brenda! From the first day we went to the winery to the day of our wedding, they were accommodating, attentive, and just lovely to work with! Not only were they professionally excellent, but since we found out about Bodega Victoriana, we have visited multiple times simply to enjoy their company and their wine! My husband and I love knowing that we can revisit this place, a place where we celebrated our love! In addition to appreciating the time and efforts of Doug and Brenda, we also have to emphasis how perfect it was to have our ceremony in such a lovely setting, a gorgeous green backdrop laced with grapevines, and how fantastic it was to have our reception and dance in that rustic, yet elegant barn! We continue to be thankful for our decision to have our wedding at Bodega Victoriana!
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.
