Domenico Winery is a romantic wedding venue located in San Carlos, California. You no longer have to travel all the way to Napa for an authentic winery wedding. Aging, French Oak wine barrels make the perfect backdrop for a night of fun and celebration. The venue is available to host bridal showers, engagement parties, receptions, and rehearsal dinners.
Facilities and Capacity
The Cask Room at Domenico Winery is an ideal spot to hold your wedding reception. A small private patio sits just off the cocktail area with three outdoor couches. With market lights strung throughout the winery, guests can enjoy a glass of premium hand-crafted wine as they eat and dance the night away. The 7,500 square foot space has a maximum seated capacity of up to 420 guests. Two additional rooms, the Osteria and the Cold Room, are able to be added to the Cask Room for larger events if needed.
The Cask Room at Domenico Winery is only able to accommodate ceremonies indoors within the same room as the reception. For a traditional theater-style ceremony set-up (additional cost of $450 for draping), the maximum guest count is 150 guests as space is needed for both ceremony/reception (the ceremony area can then be used for buffet or food stations). For a non-traditional ceremony (no additional cost) where guests watch from their dinner tables, this opens up the guest capacity to 300 comfortably.
Not only does Domenico Winery provide a great atmosphere for your guests, but they provide several event services to help enhance your planning experience. The rental items that are available range from centerpieces and furniture to drapery and lighting. The event services include:
As mentioned above, Domenico Winery offers in-house catering of different cuisines as well as allows outside caterers for an additional fee. Some of their catering services include a buffet, family-style, or plated dinners, dessert bars, hors d’oeuvres, full-bar, and quarterly menu tastings. The venue provides all of the food and beverage items that are needed to enjoy a wonderful meal and easy planning for you.
You and your spouse are going to want your guests to go home with a little something that will help them remember the momentous day for years to come. At Domenico Winery, you can create your own private label wine that is customized with a picture of the happy couple. Your guests are sure to be impressed with this surprise. Keepsakes can be produced in half bottles for as wedding favors or even full bottles to be served at the reception. If you want your bridal party to be a part of this unique gift, you can turn it into a party and have all of your closest friends come in to bottle the wine themselves.

Gorgeous venue that makes your wedding planning as easy as can be!
Domenico Winery was the PERFECT place to hold my wedding reception. I was in search of a venue that had character, could hold a lot of people (we had over 200 guests), and could serve delicious food and drink without us needing to hire outside vendors. Domenico met these requirements and then some!
What initially drew me in were the gorgeous photos of Domenico's Cask Room. With a January wedding, I wanted my reception to feel warm and cozy, while still being elegant. That is exactly how I would describe Domenico's Cask Room. The wooden barrels, the brick, the iron on the staircase, the gorgeous bar, and the lighting made this venue a combination of rustic, industrial, and classy.
Not only did Domenico have the exact look I was going for, but the food and drink were exceptional. They accommodate for a wide range of dietary restrictions, and their vegan and gluten free options are just as tantalizing as their meat options. I honestly still dream about the food at my wedding...it was absolutely delicious!
Though the look of the venue, the taste of the food, and the quality of the drink are all great reasons to book Domenico, I have to say my favorite part was the professionalism of the staff and the completeness of the package offered. Once we signed our contract, I did not need to worry about a thing. The staff was communicative, creating the seating arrangements was a breeze, and deciding on the set up of the room took no time at all. They were also extremely understanding when it came to last minute family additions and slight menu changes. The staff handled all of the set up, and the venue provided the chairs, tables, linens, cutlery, dishware, and more! This meant we did not need to deal with any outside vendors (except for the wedding cake). It made the planning significantly easier (especially for a wedding of that size). I did not worry about a thing on the day of the wedding, and I don't know many brides who can say that.
Thank you Domenico Winery for giving me the wedding of my dreams! The food and drink was delicious, the venue was stunning, and your staff pulled the whole event off without a single hitch. You made the wedding a breeze to plan, and I am SO thankful we found you.Sent on 10/05/2020

Unexpected elegance in an industrial area
Domenico Winery was such a surprise when we went to check out the venue. It's in an industrial area but once you step inside you forget where you are as the reception hall is full of string lights with wine barrels stacked to the ceiling. The bar area is super gorgeous with the large mirror. We are so excited to have our reception here. Ps the wines are good as well!Sent on 12/07/2019

Perfect venue for any event
My husband and I got married at Domenico Winery at the end of Feb 2020 right before the pandemic shutdown. We had the best night and our guests still talk about how breathtaking and amazing our venue was. First, communicating with the event staff was a breeze. They answered all my questions and were very responsive. They had food tasting events that my husband and I enjoyed. We got to taste their menu, drink wine, and get a chance to see different ways our venue could be set up in terms of types of tables, chairs, and plate settings. We had no problem scheduling our walkthru and the team was very professional when interacting with us and our vendors. Secondly, the food and wine/drinks were EXCELLENT. I was able to try most of the food served and guests have told me how much they enjoyed the food. We had the stuffed pork, brocollini, and seabass. They wine flowed all night long. You know it was good and everyone had a good time, when we were trying to piece together events of the night before! Third, it was definitely within our budget and it was easy to find and adjust things to make sure we stayed within budget. Plus, they were very transparent. No hidden fees. I am still so pleasantly shocked that we got such a beautiful venue with great food and wine for the price we paid. Last but not the least, the most obvious thing i love about this venue is the venue itself. It is so spacious! It is rustic and industrial. I love the wine barrels, exposed brick, spherical light fixtures, The big bar, the modern bathrooms, and the balcony entrance It is the perfect venue for any event!Sent on 03/03/2021

Domenico Winery is a jewel of a venue tucked into the very busy San Carlos area. So much versatility in the space! The staff is very accommodating and easy to work with!
Domenico Winery is one of my favorite venues, hands down! They do an amazing job of creating that fairytale space that you've always dreamed about as a kid growing up. As a vendor, I have had the pleasure of creating several wedding cakes to be displayed there, and it was always a pleasure to come up with a design that matched their cozy, sparkling space. Their service is always top-notch, and they are extremely organized - if I had to do it all over again, I would not hesitate to use them for my own wedding!
Shooting a Wedding at Domenico Winery was a great experience. The venue itself was styled beautifully and everywhere I turned I found something interesting to shoot. The team of employees lead by Nick Chirichillo were super helpful and very accommodating for the entire duration of the event. I highly recommend Domenico Winery to any couple who is having a South Bay Wedding.
