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 450 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.

A Dream Come True
I can't recommend Domenico Winery enough! Our wedding reception was flawless, thanks to the amazing work of Domenico. Working with Marina and her team was an absolutely pleasure! I was planning my wedding from Australia and Marina went out of her way to make sure every last detail was planned with me (we literally had hundreds of emails over the course of 9 months!) She would arrange for special tastings, meet with me when I was in town and moved around her schedule to accommodate my needs (which was very much appreciated!) I am so grateful to have worked with these kind people, the service was tremendous and the reception was breathtaking. My guests (a lot of whom are french!) loved the food and the Domenico wine was sensational. I can't speak highly enough of Domenico. Thank you for making my wedding so special.Sent on 03/08/2019

Top notch event space
Domenico Winery is a hidden gem tucked away in an unassuming industrial area of San Carlos. Upon entry, there was a cool little space at the entrance where our guests hung out during cocktail hour. Available to the Bridal Party, upon request, we had a private area/room upstairs for our own use (hangout before the grand entrance, hide and eat appetizers, there was even a little balcony overlooking the main reception area). The Cask Room is the main reception space where Domenico hosted our evening wedding reception for 330 people (including vendors). The event space was more than enough to accommodate our needs -- 34 dinner tables, DJ, live-band, photobooth, etc. The venue really doesn’t need much to have a nice semi-formal/formal feel, it definitely has the winery vibe without having to drive all the way up to Napa or out to the Tri-Valley area.Sent on 07/26/2019
We worked closely with Azeema and she was a pivotal piece in bringing our vision to life. Nobody really knew this, but we booked Domenico Winery less than 4 months from our wedding day, which I think says a lot about Azeema and her ability to put a wedding reception together with very little time to work with. She always made herself available and was very accommodating of our needs and since we had such a big guest count which included both cocktail hour and dinner we had a ton of logistics to work out. Azeema quickly answered any and all of our questions and made sure we had everything we needed for our reception. She worked with our day-of coordinator to make sure there were no worries leading up to the big day. We knew the food and drinks would be a hit because we attended two tastings ahead of the reception where we were able to taste all the different food options, bar offerings, desserts, etc. The tastings were a great opportunity to be able to see how the venue would look with different table, linen, plate setting, and chair configurations. Azeema personally checked in with us whenever we went out to the tasting events to see if anything caught our eye or if we were interested in certain set-ups. Overall, it was a pleasure working with Azeema and the Domenico Winery staff. We received so many great compliments from our family and friends about the venue -- how it looked, how everything was set up, and how nobody even knew it was there, well it’s there and available for your next event. Everything really came together and looked great, far exceeding my expectations. I would highly recommend Domenico Winery, not just as a wedding venue but for any event, it’s a really great place with wonderful staff, we truly lucked out with landing Domenico Winery for our reception.
Domenico Winery's reply:Thank you so much, Diane! We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a heartfelt response. Please stop by the new Osteria for a glass of wine on me!

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.
