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.

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.

    seriously amazing

    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.

    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!
