About Effingham Manor Winery

Effingham Manor is a Nokesville, Virginia-based historic venue with a unique story and stunning beauty. Nestled amid the countryside of Virginia's Prince William County, this once 42-square mile estate includes a 250-year old manor house, multi-tiered English garden, blacksmith shop, historic slaves quarters and smokehouse. It is also home to Virginia's oldest concrete swimming pool, which was recently converted into a koi pond. A winery, barrel room, patio and event center have been added to complete this one-of-a-kind property. Consider making Effingham Manor Winery the site for your wedding or rehearsal dinner and know that you and your guests will be able to relax and enjoy your unique, personalized celebration and award-winning wines in a setting second to none.

Facilities and Capacity

Effingham Manor has a brand new 3,300 square foot Events Center that can accommodate up to 150 guests for a plated dinner. The Event Center includes an eighteen-foot bar and beautiful brick fireplace, perfect for those chilly evenings! It has a neutral palate scheme with all the touches of a true winery. The attached patio also has a brick fireplace and built-in bar which is ideal for the cocktail hour. The manicured grounds have multiple choices available for the ceremony. Select from the multi-tiered English Garden or the lawn adjacent to the historic Manor House. This area is surrounded by lush trees, especially vibrant in the Fall, and gives our couples a more intimate setting to exchange their vows in front of family and friends. During the summer months, the grapes are in full bloom and give our couples a scenic location for wedding photos. The barrel room is perfect for small events such as rehearsal dinners and bridal showers. Surrounded by aging oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks, this area will hold up to 35 guests.

History

The Manor House is the centerpiece of the property and was used as a dwelling for most of its 250-year history. It was built in the Tidewater-style as per William Alexander, the patriarch of the property, former Colonel of the local militia and County Justice. Over the years the Manor House was added onto, had plumbing installed, porches attached and even Wifi installed, but the bones are original. The basement is in the same state as it was in the 18th century, as are the wood floors upstairs and on the third floor.

The gabled roofs (expensive at the time, and on all the buildings), double chimneys and enclosed stairwells are prime examples of the extensive detail and style that guided the Alexander family when the house was built. All the woodwork, window frames, and doorways are original. The spacing of the windows from the end walls to the center suggests that the home was built in two phases. The property hosts the Western Red Cedar tree that sits on the northwest corner of the property and is one of two living trees brought back from the Lewis and Clark expeditions in the early 19th century. It was a gift from the explorers to their friend William Alexander. Monticello, Mount Vernon, and Saginaw, Teddy Roosevelt’s residence in New York, all claim grafts from the westward expansion, but Effingham Manor and the Maryland Historical Society are home to the only original plantings east of the Mississippi. The property also includes an original blacksmith shop and smokehouse, historical slave quarters and koi pond, which was the first cement swimming pool in Virginia.

    Excellent Wedding Experience at Effingham

    My wedding at Effingham was wonderful! The staff is friendly and had everything set up perfectly. They also kept a nice eye on the wine inventory we bought for our guest to ensure what was going quickly was swapped out with the type that wasn't. They also recommended and worked well with a great caterer. It was a beautiful location and the event manager (Juanita) had everything running smoothly. We completely recommend Effingham Manor Winery.

    Excellent Experience

    My experience at Effingham Winery was top notch! Each meeting leading up to the wedding was purposeful and helpful in planning. Juanita, event director, is a ROCKSTAR! She helped make all the ideas I had in my head come to life once it came to getting things done before the wedding. She went above and beyond with day of events; including help with set-up and keeping on schedule with events. Day of staff was phenomenal with helping with set up and take down. It was always easy to get in touch with staff and responsiveness was excellent. I have always loved the Effingham and to get married there was truly a dream come true. My husband and I would recommend the Effingham to anyone!!
