About District Winery

District Winery hosts full-service winery weddings for up to 200 guests. The first commercial winery in Washington, DC, District Winery is located next to Navy Yard in the Capitol Riverfront community along the Anacostia River. The modern, sophisticated, waterfront wedding venue with floor to ceiling windows, an outdoor terrace, and sweeping river views is the ideal venue for your wedding.

District Winery weddings are full service and include our highly regarded wedding cuisine and wines made onsite. Couples will work with a District Winery event manager who will assist with all of the details, from helping curate the perfect wedding menu to coordinating with wedding vendors to ensure seamless execution. All District Winery weddings are turnkey and include the use of our custom walnut tables, chairs, high top tables, bar stools, marble topped bars, china, glassware, flatware, linen napkins, printed menus, and small table top items to enhance your decor.

Please note, we are booking small weddings and events for up to 50 people through June 2021, and actively booking larger events for July 2021 and beyond.

Facilities and Capacity

An ideal venue for weddings up to 200 guests, District Winery’s distinctive design and flexible spaces offer wedding couples options when it comes to their big day. Host your ceremony on our wraparound terrace with sweeping waterfront views or in our second floor, indoor private space with floor to ceiling windows. Enjoy cocktail hour either outdoors on the terrace or on our mezzanine level overlooking the winery production space and barrel room. Then dine and dance the night away with unobstructed riverfront and sunset views. Your wedding guests will revel in discovering unique design details as they explore the midcentury modern inspired venue and mingle in a picturesque setting.

Expert Management and Service

Our passion is creating the best wedding celebration possible for you and your guests. Highly trained District Winery catering and service professionals will serve as your wedding bartenders and waitstaff. Additionally, each couple works with a dedicated Event Manager, who confirms all wedding details, acts as a liaison with vendors, and remains on site the day of your wedding to guarantee that everything is executed to perfection.

Cuisine

No wedding is complete without the very best food, drink, and service possible.

In addition to being a premium winery, District Winery also delivers a remarkable culinary experience. We offer both family style service and plated dinner service, and all wedding cuisine is handled in-house by Executive Chef Benjamin Lambert. Our refined wedding menus highlight seasonal ingredients to provide you and your guests with a delectable and memorable dining experience. In addition to our standard offerings, wedding couples also have the option to include signature cocktails, a raw bar, late night stations, wine bottle favors, and more.

We take great pride in our culinary offerings, so we give all DIstrict Winery wedding couples the opportunity to experience our cuisine before finalizing their wedding menu. After booking a District Winery wedding, couples are invited to group couples tasting events where they taste their way through many of our menu items and wines in our private wedding venue space.

    Stunning vendor and amazing team!

    I literally can't say enough positives about the DW team. From start to finish, not only was everyone a professional, they went above and beyond to make our day extra special. Rheanna, our coordinator, was completely flawless and an awesome 'can do' attitude that took so much of the stress out of planning. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very romantic. Highly recommend!

    The Best D.C. Wedding Venue

    I cannot say enough good things about District Winery. Everyone on their team was amazing to work with throughout our entire engagement and on our wedding day. We were scheduled to get married on March 20, 2020 and were in the unfortunate situation of having to postpone our wedding a week before it was scheduled due to the pandemic. Rachel (Chief Revenue Officer) worked with us over the phone that week to share options with us and quickly reschedule us for the following year. I cannot stress how wonderful Rachel was to us during a very emotional time (and I'm sure an extremely challenging and stressful time for her as well). We ended up having multiple conversations and email exchanges with Rachel leading up to our new date in 2021 and she always made us feel so much better during a challenging time. District Winery and Rachel were flexible with us and continued to help us adapt our wedding to the microwedding we ended up hosting in March 2021. I cannot thank her and her team enough.

    Stephanie (our event manager for the wedding) was amazing to work with as well. She was always very responsive to our emails and helped us plan a wonderful wedding day. She had great ideas to make our much smaller than anticipated wedding special and helped ensure everything ran smoothly on the day of the wedding. We didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day and that is all credited to Stephanie and her event team.

    District Winery is a beautiful venue, and we are so thankful that we chose them for our wedding. The food and drinks were fantastic, the views for our ceremony were gorgeous, and the team of people were incredible. District Winery handles many components of the wedding which makes planning the wedding so much less stressful (even during a pandemic). Would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a venue in D.C.
