We were hesitant to pick this venue due to our large invite list and the distance from a hotel, but let me say; we have absolutely no regrets! We worked with Derrick, the wedding director and planner at the Winery. He assured us that we did not need a day of planner and he was right! He had a whole team ready the day of and everything went flawlessly! We got married outside on the landing at the lake and it was absolutely beautiful! We got the most amazing pictures back from our photographer with this as the backdrop! Our reception was inside in the most elegant/rustic ballroom. We did the wedding package and had 166 guests at our wedding. It was so nice for the winery to have a package set up with the food, drinks, DJ, florist, and baker. My fiancé and I could relax and just pick what we wanted- wine/beer choices, music, cake flavor and style and of course the menu! There is room for adjustment on price range depending on what you want- we wanted to spend more on the open bar tab and less on flowers. We had our wedding party and family rent the cottages out the night of our wedding so it was nice to not need to travel anywhere after the wedding. My bridesmaids (6 girls), my mom, the groom’s mom, and our hair stylist, makeup artist, and myself fit very comfortably in the bridal cottage while getting ready the day of. If we got to do our wedding day again, we would 1000% do it here again!!!Sent on 06/28/2019

CFWV is an outstanding venue! My husband and I are dual military stationed in different states. Derrick, our coordinator, was amazing at accommodating and answering our questions. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and it easily accommodates 170 people. Besides the venue being absolutely gorgeous, we were able to rent the cabins for the wedding party, which is really convenient. Ruth, the florist, is amazing and she captured exactly what I wanted my bouquet to look like! My mother bakes, therefore we brought our own cake and it was not an issue with the venue. There were only two hiccups: first, the DJ sort of left the wedding (I had a family member co-DJ the reception), and second, the food was not exactly the same as the tasting. This was caused by a kitchen tool breaking the day of the wedding and unfortunately the kitchen could not keep up with the plated dinner. Probably, with a bufet dinner it would not have happened. The venue is willing to provide compensation for their mistake at the kitchen. Overall, I fully recommend this venue, it was beautiful, amazing, and affordable compared against other venues in a 200mi radius!Sent on 06/17/2018

Beautiful venue for Weddings and Events!
Cape Fear Vineyard is run by the most dedicated, upbeat and professional team. They are very responsive and wonderful hosts. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their venue and service to clients.
I don't even know where to begin. I knew this new venue was going to be amazing but I just had no idea how amazing it would be. We arrived to a place that is like no other. Driving in, you are greeting by a large horse who quickly becomes a best friend, mini donkeys, peacocks, pheasants, llamas, swans and more. On top of that - a winery! Being is such a tranquil and natural environment with on-site accommodations can't get any better for a relaxed and fun bride. I absolutely CAN'T wait to plan lots of wedding here. Thanks for having us at your open house! You all took such great care of us. Thank you Janet and all of the other sweet staff! -Melissa, Knot Too Shabby Events Owner
