Facilities and Capacity
Casa Rondena Winery offers three beautiful spaces to choose from. The largest indoor space on the property is the Great Hall, the original Casa Rondena Winery fermenting room, featuring gorgeous vaulted ceilings modeled after a Moroccan souk. The Great Hall Garden is the outdoor space just next to the Great Hall, featuring a lawn and patio area, placed delicately between the pond and grape vines. The Rotunda room and connected Barrel Room is a unique space where the wines age in oak barrels, complete with the authentic aroma of wine and oak. Next to the Rotunda and Barrel rooms is the Founder’s garden, another quaint outdoor space with Middle Eastern style. The 1629 Club is located at the back of the property, originating as the founder’s private residence. This is now the members club, offering ample lounge seating and a dining room for a warm and inviting space for your reception. Each space offers a maximum capacity of 400 guests.
Casa Rondena Winery provides several amenities in the base rental fee of their wedding packages, including on-site management and staff, set up, tear down and cleanup, wine bar, wine server, wine glasses, a parking attendant, 1.5 hours in the bridal suite before the ceremony, and their in-house inventory of tables and chairs. Casa Rondena Winery also allows you to select and provide the caterer of your choice, while offering a few select recommendations, if you desire. They also welcome you to create and bring your own decorations. In addition to wine, they offer beer at their weddings and events. Their wine bar options include purchasing by the case, by the bottle, or a cash/credit bar. Sangria is also available for purchase. Other miscellaneous services and item offered include:
Established in 1995 as a family undertaking, Casa Rondena Winery was started by vintner John Calvin, and his two young sons, Ross and Clayton. The tasting room first opened in August 1994, and the commemorative Tricentennial bell tower was completed in 2004. Mr. and Mrs. Calvin had built a home on the property, which turned into the 1629 Club in 2010, offering a new level of membership to the winery.

Vicki and Jerry made our dream wedding come true.Sent on 10/11/2015
The idea my wife and I had for our wedding was anything but typical. Our wedding involved 400 guests, four officiants, two caterers, and the fusion of three different cultures. Knowing how involved and complex our wedding would be, my wife and I sought out for the perfect wedding planner.
The day we met Vicki and Jerry, we connected with them on a personal level. They understood this wedding would be a challenge that involved them researching and learning about our cultures and traditions. Vicki and Jerry held our confidence in making this happen throughout the entire process.
We met with Vicki and Jerry on a scheduled basis, as they carefully outlined and planned every detail of the wedding. They were able to set us up with the very best vendors that we would not have found otherwise. Many of whom are now great friends of ours.
Vicki and Jerry have some very unique talents. They put time aside to understand our background, the story of how we met, and who we really are. Vicki took this information and was able to design, handcraft, and tell our story through some of the most beautiful decorations we have seen.
My wife and I can't thank both Vicki and Jerry enough for making our wedding day more perfect than we had ever thought possible. These two individuals are just outstanding, make it happen and go above and beyond. Orange September is more than your average run of the mill wedding planner. They are something much more.

In the same class as the Hacienda for a that feeling of completely stepping back in time, the beautiful traditional architecture and grounds, and being surrounded by gorgeous, natural surroundings of mature trees and vineyards. Bellissima.
Casa Rondena winery is a beautiful venue for weddings and other events. The grounds are beautiful and the wine delightful!
