In addition to being a premium winery, we also deliver a remarkable culinary experience. At District Winery, your wedding menu is crafted in-house by our expert culinary team, led by Executive Chef Christian Fischhuber. Chef Fischhuber brings a wealth of culinary experience to your day, from his time working at Michelin-starred restaurants in Austria, to overseeing fine-dining restaurants in California, to opening restaurants in New York & London. This international experience has helped him develop his signature cooking style, utilizing classic European technique with comfort and modern creativity in mind.
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.
Couples may rent the space in this winery for their ceremony and reception combined or their engagement party, reception, or rehearsal dinner.

the BEST decision we made!!!
On top of that, the venue itself is beautiful with views of the river and a heated patio. The bartenders were amazing, and developed a rapport with our guests to the point that they remembered people's drink orders or came up with drinks on the spot based on what guests said they liked.
We had about 120 guests, and the room easily accommodated our wedding size without feeling too empty. The room is beautiful on its own, and it's not one of those venues where you feel like you need to add a lot of florals or expensive decor to make it feel elevated. Finally, the staff and event planners were amazing and completely committed to making sure we had the day we'd always imagined. Getting married at DW was the best decision we made!
