About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
Up to 200 guests

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.

Facilities and Capacity

An ideal venue for weddings of 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, we also deliver a remarkable culinary experience. Our cuisine is managed in-house by our culinary team and we offer both family-style and plated dinner service. Our refined wedding menus highlight seasonal ingredients to provide you and your guests with a 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 our menu items and wines in our private wedding venue space.

Other Services
Couples may rent the space in this winery for their ceremony and reception combined or their engagement party, reception, or rehearsal dinner.

    Perfect Bridal Shower Location

    I co-hosted a bridal shower at this amazing venue in a private space overlooking the water. It could not have been more perfect. The planning process with Britt could not have been easier. She recommended an awesome florist who was also great to work with. The food was amazing, the staff were incredible and the venue was stunning! The bloody mary bar and mimosa bar were so much fun. Everything was set up when we arrived and the staff made sure that we had everything we needed throughout the event. They even helped put together wine bottle favor bags with really cute thank you tags. The shower was truly perfect! I HIGHLY recommend this venue for private events.

    District Winery's reply:

    Hello Stacie!

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and for trusting us with such a special day. We absolutely loved hosting you and your guests! I'm happy to hear the florist we recommended worked out well. The space looked beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing the photo.

    We hope to see you soon in the Wine Bar!

    Cheers,
    Britt

    The BEST wedding venue

    Stop looking now and book District Winery; it is the most perfect wedding venue. The space is beautiful. The food and drinks are AMAZING. Our event coordinator Rheanna took care of everything and made my life so easy. I literally could not be happier with our choice of venue. Everything went so smoothly, and our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was and how it was the best wedding food they ever had. Run, don’t walk, to book DW.
