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.Sent on 10/06/2020

Scenic Venue with Amazing Service
Early Mountain Vineyards was the perfect spot for our intimate microwedding! The surrounding area makes for a stunning backdrop, and all the staff were so accommodating, upbeat, and professional during our reception. Food is incredibly important for us, so finding a vineyard with convenient/high-quality in-house catering was a major factor, and all our guests were raving about the dinner. We also found the on-site cottage very spacious and cute. Overall, we were thrilled with our decision to go with EMV!Sent on 09/29/2020

Early Mountain Vineyards was the perfect spot to cast my vision for my winter wedding. The fireplaces in both the banquet hall and the tasting room created the romantic winter feel I wanted. The staff was so easy to work with from wine tastings, flipping the room for the reception, and working with my team of vendors. The groomsmen room and cottage were idyllic and perfect for getting ready. You truly cannot go wrong with this beautiful place both inside and out .Sent on 02/12/2020
The venue is just so dreamy! The event hall is so magical soon as you walk-in, we just love designing pretty blooms and fresh greenery throughout the property. The staff at EMV are just so kind and helpful. We just LOVE working at Early Mountain! xo
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!
