Burntshirt Vineyards was a fabulous place to have our wedding ceremony and reception! We had a small wedding of less than 90 people and we decided to have the ceremony outside on the patio and the reception inside the Summit event center. Deborah, the event manager, was awesome about helping us plan the wedding and answering questions about decorations, furniture, set-up, etc. We used their recommended vendors for several parts of the wedding--the Hendersonville tent rental & the caterer Luella's bbq, were especially fabulous. The wine is exceptionally good--we chose the 3400 red and the estate white blend. We really felt at home here on the vineyard. They have a lovely cottage you can rent as a "getting ready bridal party" area. I'm so happy we got married at Burntshirt Vineyard.Sent on 06/17/2017

Overall a pretty good experience
So we had our wedding in January, which is in the off season. We booked two nights in the Vitner Cottage and the terrace/event hall for our venue. I'll start with the positives, first and foremost it is an absolutely gorgeous spot. We had a small, under 60 people wedding and everyone fit with plenty of space on the terrace for the ceremony. The indoor part if the venue is spacious, yet cozy and has a beautiful wooden wine bar. The staff was attentive and friendly. Everything went fairly smoothly on the day off. I do, however, have a few complaints. Our rehearsal was canceled due to inclimate weather on the day of, and the only available solution was to either do it outside without help getting in or to go elsewhere. We ended up having it at our dinner location. The bridesmaids had planned on staying the night in the cottage before the wedding and were not given clear instructions on how to get on to the property. We spent an hour before finding the hidden gate, and had no way of getting in contact with anyone to instruct us in the right direction. The cottage is cute, however, there was not any hand soap, shower soap, or extra toilet paper. The beds are fairly comfortable though and it has a working kitchen. These are all pretty minor things that could probably be dealt with if I had communicated better. My biggest advice would be to splurge on a caterer though, as the one that is provided with the venue was pretty terrible. I've never seen so many unfinished plates at a wedding, and we were never offered a tasting. Our guests definitely enjoyed the wine, though! All in all, I would definitely recommend Burntshirt if you are looking for an intimate venue in the Blue Ridge Mountains on a lower budget. It was the most magical evening of my life thus far.Sent on 01/12/2021
