    Amazing venue

    We had such a wonderful experience using Early Mountain for our wedding venue! We worked mainly with Sara (a little with Melissa as well) and I can't say enough great things! The venue is absolutely beautiful, Sara was responsive and amazing to work with and everything turned out beautifully. Thank you for helping to make our wedding absolutely incredible.

    Incredible venue + coordinator

    Sara and the EMV team could not have been more wonderful to work with. I started talking with them in august 2019, chose the venue in September 2019 and then had to postpone my wedding due to the pandemic. Sara made the whole process so easy, and was so graceful, kind and thoughtful in all of our interactions. She went above and beyond in every aspect, far surpassing my expectations to ensure my husband and I had a great day. We also became wine club members and went to the venue often and always had great interactions with the staff. They are all genuinely helpful and kind. The venue itself is beautiful, and made for the most dreamy winter wedding. The wine is spectacular. The food is top notch and delicious. The cottage next door makes getting ready/ the night of so easy and convenient. It has ample space and everything you could need! I could not have been happier with my experience at EMV!

    The BEST venue.

    Choosing early mountain for our wedding venue was by far the best decision we made. We didn’t know of the vineyard prior to looking at venues and it has easily become our favorite spot. The wine is so smooth (and I’m not a wine drinker). The food is mind blowing. The service is beyond- I mean everyone is so genuinely nice AND they do synchronized service for dinner- what more can you ask for?? The venue is just gorgeous without decor and stunning with decor. They have fireplaces- I mean….. talk about a gorgeous addition to an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. You and your newly official boo get to stay at the cutest cottage right next to the venue night of as part of the venue deal- so goodbye worrying about where you will stay and hello to a beautiful sunrise on the mountains! And don’t even get me started on the day of coordinator that you get to work with when you book… Melissa made our day so easy and wonderful. I can brag for days about her alone. Seriously. I did not have to worry about a thing on my big day. Nothing at all. I couldn’t even tell you if something went wrong because it was never brought to my attention- it was handled and the night carried on. I always thought you had to pay BIG bucks to have a wedding planner to get that type of attention to detail and flawless flow throughout the day. Nope- it’s included!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I could do it all over I would in a heart beat because it was an absolute dream. Also, do not forget to ask about a late night snack option too- I still think of those warm truffle fries after the night was over with. I’m not saying that the fries were the best part of the night…. getting married was… but they were a solid second 😉 A massive thank you to the entire early mountain team for making everything perfect.

Local Nanny Network, LLC Local Nanny Network, LLC Bar Services & Beverages

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!
