A Perfect Wedding
You can see from the pictures how beautiful District Winery is, and if you've done a tasting you know how good the wine and food are! But I wanted to point out how great they are to work with. We worked with Lee on the DW team and she was simply incredible. She was great at offering suggestions when we needed help and executing our vision when we knew how we wanted things to go. And she was a tremendous resource on the wedding day, keeping all the trains running on time! DW's back-end organization ensures that everything stays organized, and the ENTIRE team there is always willing to help out, offer you a glass of wine, and make sure everything is running smoothly. We were in constant contact with Lee and the DW team in the last 90 days or so before the wedding, so by the time the big day arrived there was nothing left to stress about! The day itself ran SO smoothly, and our guests were floored by the beautiful space -- we did our ceremony inside on the 3rd floor, came down to the mezzanine for cocktail hour, and then went back upstairs for the reception (which the DW team flipped from ceremony to reception in just an hour!). We also had the outdoor terrace set up as a cocktail/dessert lounge for people who wanted a break from dancing. A great experience from start to finish!Sent on 03/24/2020

District Winery is amazing, plain and simple. It's beautiful. The food tasted better than any wedding food I'd ever had. And the staff was a dream. Rebecca organized and coordinated our wedding down to the minute -- we couldn't have done that without her. Multiple guests have told us it was the best timed wedding -- there was no down time between food service or a first dance or weird breaks. She made sure everything ran smoothly, from making sure my friends came in to bustle my dress, to finding the maid of honor and best man to give the speech, to making me laugh as I was about to cry when it came time to walk down the aisle. We signed on to District Winery before it was fully constructed, but Brian really hooked us with his vision and how genuine he was. Highly, highly recommend.Sent on 04/26/2019

The perfect turnkey solution!
District Winery is the perfect solution for brides who don’t want to work with too many different vendors. DW has everything and they know how to run a seamless event. Lee was great to work with! It is a beautiful venue in a great location. The food is incredible, and I’ve heard it’s the best wedding food many of our guests have had. The staff are wonderful! We loved the meals family style. We planned a lot of time from the ceremony to the venue for traffic and we were running ahead of schedule. They were able to accommodate us anyway. If you are looking for something low maintenance but classy, this is your place!Sent on 03/14/2020
