Fantastic to work with

Our reception was at the Contento Vineyard. It was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a tent or barn setting and it was both. Kathy was fantastic to work with. There was a tiny church in Hopland and she knew the caretaker and was able to get a key. It ended up being this tiny little white church, Little House on the Prairie style. It was perfect, and we ended up getting married there. Would never have happened without her. The whole team there is awesome and joy to work with.

Kathy and the entire Brutocao family were so accomodating, helpful and pleasant during our wedding planning process and the weekend of the event. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went smoothly! We loved having our wedding there and recommend it to everyone!

This venue is a dream come true . I got married mid October . And the view of the clouds and the vineyards changing colors is truly breathtaking. My guests were so impressed . It also makes decorating minimal because you don't need much with the gorgeous view you get. From the moment we saw it's knew we had to have it . Kathy from brutocao was extremely helpful and accomadating! if you are looking for a venue that is outdoor this is handed own the best place in Mendocino county. !!

I've had the pleasure of working at Brutocao Cellars and what a treat! The view from top of the hill was breathtaking. As a wedding photographer, I literally found dozens of different backdrops and locations on the property to take my clients for their portraits. And the big beautiful tree right smack dab in the middle of the hilltop ... ABSOLUTE PERFECTION.
