Local Nanny Network absolutely loves entertaining children at Early Mountain Vineyards! It is such a gorgeous venue inside and out and has stunning mountain views! We love supervising children attending the wedding in the Grooms Lounge. It's quite cozy with a big leather couch and a few oversized chairs. The round table in the lounge makes for a wonderful craft table and an area for games. It's also close to the reception area for parents to pop in to check in on their children. We love Early Mountain and their wonderful staff! We highly recommend Early Mountain to any brides looking for a gorgeous venue. This venue is also makes for a wonderful winter wedding spot!
Early Mountain Vineyards is a gorgeous venue and their team is so professional and a dream to work with!
