Nestled in the hills of Sunol, surrounded by vineyards and gardens, is Elliston Vineyards. As guests drive up the quiet road to Elliston Vineyards, they are greeted with the impressive site of our Neo- Romanesque mansion, while our staff awaits their arrival at our wrought-iron gates. Garden-style ceremonies are held outdoors alongside our historic stone mansion in a garden brimming with native flora including an expansive lawn and gazebo. Vineyards and wine barrels surround the ceremony, while a gorgeous hundred- year tree provides shade for wedding guests.
A short walkway takes you to our Terrace Room, a secluded banquet room set into the hillside. Cocktail hour is enjoyed on the outdoor patio. As guests arrive, servers are passing delicious hors d’oeuvres and champagne, providing guests a chance to dine al fresco under umbrella-shaded tables. A Victorian gazebo on the deck is large enough for a lounge area or a quartet of musicians to serenade partygoers. After cocktail hour, guests are invited to take their seats in the Terrace Room, to begin dinner and dancing. The vaulted ceiling adds the feeling of spaciousness while the floor-length windows provide the picture perfect backdrop for the bride and groom’s table. Surrounded by oak and olive trees and a beautiful waterfall, our Terrace room creates the ideal venue for you and your guests to celebrate.
Our reputation at Elliston has been built on our friendly full service coordinators, quality food, and excellent wines, presented in a beautiful and elegant setting. Our staff is ready to assist you in arranging an event to remember...from beginning to the perfect ending. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you would like to schedule a time to visit and tour the Elliston estate.

This place is beautiful! It has a wonderful outdoor location for a garden setting wedding next to a historical mansion as a backdrop and they have a nice building for the reception that has a patio/deck for cocktail hour and those wanting to escape from dancing.Sent on 09/12/2014
From the moment you first meet with them, up to the last minute of the wedding, they are nice and very helpful (they answered all my emails very quickly), and they are very personal, remembering every couple by name anytime you drop by. They provide you with a day of coordinator that is included in your package which helps so much!
The food is great! They have a lot of different options, especially for vegetarians as well, and have a lot of flavor.
Perhaps the best part is all of this comes at a great value. Weddings are expensive, especially the venue and food, but they have very reasonable packages for all budgets and don't try and upsell you too much. Don't think that because the price is so low, that there is something lacking in the quality like I found with other venues.
Oh and the location is nice and centrally located for people all over the bay area!

Our Wedding Was a Success!
We chose Elliston because of their excellent location (away from the City, but still reachable from all over the Bay Area), beautiful grounds, very reasonable pricing, especially when considering the level of service and area provided. The location was tucked away in Sunol, but was very accessible via multiple freeways. The property grounds are gorgeous, and we received many compliments on our venue choice! We love the vineyards, koi pond, and especially the mansion. We would definitely host another event at Elliston, and recommend the venue to our friends & coworkers.Sent on 08/03/2019
Our Day-of Coordinator was Tiffani, and she was wonderful to work with! She was knowledgeable about the venue, and provided many great tips to plan ahead so our day went as smoothly as possible. She was also very responsive to all our questions and many emails! We sent her pics of how we wanted our table decor set up, and all the Elliston staff paid special attention to all the specific details we wanted.
Also wanted to give a special thank you to Donna for opening up the mansion to us a bit early so we could take pictures indoors instead of out in the rain! The rainy weather was a big surprise, but Elliston was a big help in adjusting and keeping our day special and magical.
Finally, the food. Yummy scalloped potatoes! Many of our guests came back for more servings! Also, the salmon was fresh and cooked to perfection. Many of our guests raved about the salmon. Overall, the food tasted much better when compared to when we went to the food tasting. High value for price.

Absolutely perfect every step of the way
Elliston is a gorgeous venue made all the better by its wonderful staff. Kimberley was there for us every step of the way, very responsive and accommodating, and such a pleasure to work with. The food they provide is so delicious! Also, their preferred vendor list never steered us wrong, so we had a great team who knew how to work together. Our guests had a wonderful time and I attribute much of that to the beauty of this venue and the hard work of the staff!Sent on 10/31/2018
Elliston is not only beautiful all year round, they have an amazing staff who takes care of all their couples and vendors alike. I've only had the pleasure of capturing a few weddings and session at Elliston so far but look forward to many more! The historical mansion is perfect for that classic feel and the event center is that modern twist, making this the perfect venue for almost any look or feel.
Elliston Vineyards is a beautiful venue tucked into Sunol among the rolling hills. The mansion is quaint and beautiful, with a rich history to it. The flowing fountains make wonderful backdrops for photos and video as well. Most importantly though besides the beauty of the venue the staff is wonderfully friendly and everything they do, they seem to do the right way.
Elliston Vineyards is a truly unique and beautiful space! The event specialists are on top of everything and their staff is always smiling! The lighting and space is so gorgeous inside the buildings and within the grounds! I always enjoy meeting my bridal clients here!
