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 6,200 square foot space has a maximum seated capacity of up to 300 guests.
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 $1,500), the maximum guest count is 150 guests as space is needed for both ceremony/reception (the ceremony area can then be used for dancing 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 270 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:
- Two on-site dressing rooms
- In-house catering & bar
- Built-in lighting
- Set up & Clean up
- Tables & linens
- Outside vendors
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.

The Wedding of our Dreams
Now for some details…
The cask room is lovely without additional decor, but we added the barrel tea lights and it made the room so romantic. We loved the included furniture (the long pine table, the bar, the sofa set), and the outdoor space unexpectedly served for some awesome nighttime photos! We had access to the spacious Syrah suite upstairs, which served for an excellent changing/warm up space (we did a surprise aerial hoop first dance). The Syrah suite also has a balcony that overlooks the cask room, which was such a great way to take in the beautiful reception space as a whole. I was selfishly stoked that there was a spacious private bathroom next to the Syrah suite that made going to the restroom in a gown by myself pretty easy. Also, the walkway down the staircase made for an incredible grand entrance!
Rentals and the tasting:
Our tasting was about 4 months before our wedding. It was set up as an event for the next season’s couples, and they gave each couple a folder of information including their current proposal, the menu options, and a scorecard for each individual to make notes during the tasting. The food was delicious, and we were definitely stuffed by the end of the night. The bar had prepared a handful of signature cocktails that were creative and tasty. They set up a variety of guest table / sweetheart table arrangements, and included pricing information for each setup. They also had a binder of all the available linen rentals, which proved useful as seeing it in person was a bit different from seeing the options online. Being able to handle three different areas of the wedding (venue space, rentals, catering) at once in person was just such a timesaver. It really was such a fun and relaxed way to do a tasting as all the venue coordinators were there to answer questions, but my husband and I also had time to speak privately. Marina checked in with us throughout the night, and we did find out that we were able to rent a stage through Domenico for the band (super convenient). All in all it was like going on a fun and productive date!
The team, the tools, and the final walkthrough:
All the folks that we had the chance to meet at Domenico were friendly and professional, and we were especially grateful we got to work with Marina. She handled all our questions promptly and thoroughly, and she was organized throughout planning. We got our initial floor plan shortly after signing, which helped immensely when we were discussing with our other vendors about the day (many of which we found from Domenico’s preferred vendor list - they were all amazing). I really liked that they had a client portal that easily allowed us to check on the current proposal, our rentals, and catering details. It was also incredibly simple to make payments and I appreciated the automated reminders when a payment due date was coming up. Our final walkthrough was about a month before the wedding, and it was efficient. We sorted out our final floor plan, walked through our timeline, finalized all the rentals, and decided on our signature drinks. I was so relieved when Marina presented us with a document of all the fun signature drinks they’ve done, as I didn't have a go-to drink like my husband. They handled making the bar sign and it was actually so cute. We left our final walkthrough excited and confident that the wedding was going to be great.
The rehearsal (first dance):
We did our ceremony rehearsal off-site for logistical reasons, but we did have a rehearsal at Domenico for our first dance. For our first dance my husband and I did a surprise aerial hoop doubles performance, and Domenico’s cask room conveniently has a permanent rigging point. Marina graciously scheduled us in the Monday before our wedding so that our rigger (who we also found through Marina) could set up the rigging apparatus and we could practice our dance on-site before the big day. Marina was super helpful throughout the rehearsal, handling all the issues that came up while we set up and practiced.
The big day:
The wedding was incredible. Everything went according to plan, and if there were any issues they were resolved before I found out. We were kindly brought appetizers during cocktail hour as we were warming up in the Syrah suite, and man they were good. Our dinners were delicious, the drinks were great, they made sure our vendors ate, everything was just perfect. Our guests had an amazing time, and I must say that it would not have been possible without Marina, the incredible team at Domenico Winery, and the awesome vendors we found through them!

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.
