We are SO happy that we found District Winery! Our wedding there last weekend was complete perfection! The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We loved that there are both indoor and outdoor spaces. We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful day so that we could hold our ceremony outside on the terrace, but the fact that there was an easy Plan B to move inside if the weather didn't cooperate was a huge stress off of our minds.

Aside from the stunning event space, the Winery also totally delivered on quality of service and food. The servers were SO attentive - many of our guests commented that their wine glasses never even got close to empty, because the servers were so on top of it! The event staff were so polite and professional, and very helpful when we were trying to box up some decorations at the end of the night, which we greatly appreciated. The food was absolutely delicious. We really loved that the Winery invites their wedding couples to a "tasting night" to try ALL of the food and wine on the entire menu - this was a really nice touch and allowed us to feel confident about the menu we selected.

We cannot say enough positive things about our event coordinator, Courtney. In the months leading up to the wedding, Courtney was extremely patient, organized, and thorough in answering all of our (numerous) questions. She offered very helpful suggestions on logistics of the day. Courtney was completely unflappable throughout the rehearsal and wedding day - she was calm, cheerful, and kept everyone on schedule. We were able to relax and have enjoy the festivities because we were confident that Courtney had a handle on everything behind the scenes. Thanks so much for giving us such a perfect day, Courtney! You're fantastic at what you do!

We had an amazing experience at District Winery, as did our friends and family. The space is beautiful, the food and service are amazing, and their events team goes above and beyond. I can't recommend this venue enough!

District Winery blew us, and all of our guests away in amazement. Our event manager, Courtney Ross, was incredible to work with. Her attention to detail, patience, and friendliness made the whole planning process smooth. On the day of, everything was set up perfectly, ran on time, and the service was OUTSTANDING. We had a dedicated banquet server focused on us as the couple. Our guests also could not stop raving about the food. Thanks to DW for making our day even more perfect!
