    We had an intimate wedding ceremony and dinner at Carneros for 14 people. I worked with Courtney and Alisa and they were both fantastic! They were responsive, personable, friendly, and so accommodating. Courtney managed the day-of logistics and everything was perfect. She was so sweet! The Arbor (our ceremony site) is gorgeous - we booked it sight unseen - and were elated when we checked in the day before the wedding and toured the resort. I can only imagine a large wedding at Carneros would be amazing! We dined at FARM in the private wine library post ceremony and service and food was top notch. Our day was everything we imagined and more. Carneros also has a great preferred vendor list. We can't wait to return for anniversary celebrations in years to come. I highly recommend Carneros for your small wedding or elopement!

    We hosted an intimate wedding of 50 guests in the new Arbor followed by a wedding reception in the Hilltop Dining Room. We cannot sing the praises of Carneros more and the majority of this comes not only from the scenery and venue itself but also from the AMAZING on site coordinator, Elizabeth. Elizabeth is responsive, professional and flexible. She worked with us and made us feel so relaxed every step of the way. I had no pre-wedding jitters due to the fact I knew she was on her game. I plan events for a living and have NEVER worked with a more professional on site coordinator.

    In Napa and Sonoma, you will come across some very beautiful venues but we did our homework and Carneros Inn has it all- stunning scenery, beautiful amenities and incredible team members (Elizabeth and her team member Natalie who assisted day of). Also, a good on site coordinator can make or break your day. Elizabeth has been in Napa for a while and knew TONS of great vendors (as well as some horror stories). She was our inside woman since we live in SF and I only run events in SF, NY, LA and have minimal experience in wine country.

    Our stay at Carneros during the wedding and the days following: They bent over backwards and sent us lovely amenities during our stay! My husband and I joked that every time we left our suite, we would come back to more sparkling wine or other delicious treats. Oh yeah, they upgraded us to an INCREDIBLE suite and even let us add one more day to our stay. Everything was top notch!

    My husband I got married early June 2016 at the Carneros Inn and it was an absolute dream! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a gorgeous, stress-free Napa wedding. Besides it's amazing space, we originally chose the Carneros Inn because we were looking for a Napa wedding where we could have amazing views of the valley, our band could play past 11pm and we were allowed to serve hard alcohol. (If you've just begun your venue search, you may not know this but wineries/vineyards are only allowed to serve beer and wine AND most venues in Napa/Sonoma require you to turn off you music at 10pm). Besides meeting all of our logistical "musts" it met all of our dream wedding "musts": Gorgeous grounds, an outside ceremony location with an amazing view, a separate area for cocktails and dinner (and even dancing if you wanted it). The Carneros blends a farm house/barn look with a classic elegant feel which is exactly what we were looking for.

    Overall, the best part about the Carneros Inn was the staff (especially the complimentary month of wedding planner, Elizabeth Harris). Over a year and a half of wedding planning I interacted with a lot of folks in the wedding industry and Elizabeth was by far the most competent, organized, professional, efficient, knowledgeable and altogether lovely one out there. She was always quick to follow-up on questions, thorough with her answers, understanding of restrictions and supportive throughout. For instance, a month before my wedding I received a call from my furniture vendor that all of my cocktail rentals were ruined at another wedding. Given I was getting married in June in Napa, there was no inventory left throughout the area, but Elizabeth helped me fix the situation in less than a week! On the day of there were a few minor disasters and Elizabeth was so good at her job that I did not know about one of them (until weeks later). She was amazing and blocking and tackling and making sure I was having the best day
