I recently had my wedding at Detour Winery and had my dream wedding. They were very helpful in making my day run smoothly and helped out with contacting my vendors and setting them up on site. The vineyard and the pond were gorgeous!Sent on 08/12/2014

These guys were great in accommodating our wedding! They were responsive through-out the entire process, they were flexible with scheduling, and didn't mind us coming up for multiple visits as different family members wanted to see the venue. They worked closely with all our vendors to ensure everyone was ready to go. And even when an overnight thunderstorm took out the power to the bridal suite (which made it un-usable due to the heat) they didn't hesitate closing their tasting area early in order to accommodate the bride and her girls.Sent on 08/08/2016
The only recommendation i would make is to make the AC situation a little better for the reception hall for summer weddings, but it's clear that they are constantly working on improving the venue, and making it better and better for years to come.
I would 100% recommend Detour, and thanks again to Dan and Sarah for the amazing help you guys were to us.
Detour Winery is not only a beautiful place to spend the day tasting fabulous and unique wines. it has also transformed into a perfect setting for the most romantic of weddings! We look forward to working with them on many amazing events throughout the next several years. Take the time to go for a tour and a tasting while youre at it. It's a beautiful drive and easy to find!
As a photographer, I was really in love with the beauty of Detour Winery. It is one of the most scenic venues I've had the pleasure to photograph. From the vineyards, to the mountain views ,the pond, the gorgeous plantings... then top it all off with a one-of- a-kind rustic bridge with a river view and the most amazing sunsets around, wedding photos at the Detour Winery will be nothing less than stunning.
