    A day to remember!

    My best friend got married at Ernest Hemingway Vineyards and it was such a lovely experience. The team at Hemingway made the whole wedding party feel at ease and everything was so beautiful and organized. The ceremony was held in the stunning olive tree pergola area, there was a delicious dinner held in the Barrel Room, and we had an iconic evening of dancing outside under the stars. It was a night to remember and the wine was SO GOOD. I can’t wait to return to Paso to visit this winery again!

    Beautiful Setting and Delightful Staff

    Modern ascetic with all the charm of a family owned vineyard!

    I attended a gorgeous wedding at Hemmingway, and I can't recommend it enough for the modern pinterest bride. The grounds made for AMAZING wedding photos! There is a really pretty olive grove that made for some of the most beautiful wedding photos. Hemmingway really is one of Paso Robles hidden gems!!

    Stunning & Magical

    The Hemingway venue is absolutely stunning. The winery itself its beautiful, but what makes this venue so unique and better than the rest is that you are treated like a member of the family 100% of the time. They don't treat you like just another customer. The staff are warm and welcoming and go above and beyond to make your experience truly memorable. This venue has multiple options for ceremony and reception locations all over the property. We got married at sunset at their pergola with swings (which also happens to be where I proposed to my wife). Our reception was in their barrel room filled with farmhouse tables, silks, twinkle lights, and a chandelier. We danced under the stars and twinkle lights right outside the barrel room where cocktail tables and a delicious food spread was provided by the on site chef. Our wedding was truly magical and we cannot thank the Hemingway venue enough. Thank you for making us part of the family.
