Wedding of my dreams.
I truly cannot even begin to describe how phenomenal of a wedding location Gloria Ferrer is. For the price, you will not find a more beautiful venue in wine country. Absolutely STUNNING views at both the ceremony and reception sites. My professional photos of the site aren't in yet, but everyone kept talking about the view/venue the entire night, and most of my guests said this was one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever been to. Colleen is also fabulous to work with. Book your wedding here - it was literally the best decision I've ever made.Sent on 09/09/2019

Gloria Ferrer Vineyards is stunning. Looking back at everything we went through leading up to the wedding I am filled with joy that this beautiful place was our venue. We were met with a hiccup leading up to the wedding. The Tubbs fire in October unfortunately destroyed our original venue. All of our vendors were booked by this time and our budget was set based on the venue fee at our original venue. I had been fortunate enough to work briefly with Colleen previously through my old job. I reached out to her and explained our situation and that all of our vendors were booked and budget was set. Colleen invited me out for a site visit and I fell in love. Gloria Ferrer had a lot of very similar characteristics to what my fiance and I loved about our original venue, Paradise Ridge Winery.Sent on 06/11/2018
Working with Colleen was wonderful. She eliminated a lot of stress and worked tirelessly with our wedding planner, Lindsey with Ooh La La Weddings, to ensure it was beautiful. Since they have the stunning cave and expansive tasting room, we opted to have everything inside! We had our ceremony in the cave, moved to the tasting room for the cocktail hour, back to the cave for our buffet dinner, and then back up to the tasting room for the reception & dancing.
The day of the wedding turned out to be a beautiful day! Even though our events were all inside, the doors to the patio off of the tasting room were open and our guests enjoyed the gorgeous evening inside and out.
Everything about Gloria Ferrer just makes me feel warm and fuzzy. The ambient, natural lighting in the tasting room, to the coziness and intimacy of the cave, plus the wines are amazing and didn’t break the bank!
Colleen and everyone at Gloria Ferrer really turned a stressful situation into an amazing evening full of memories we will never forget! Gloria Ferrer is my favorite bubbles now because anytime I drink their sparkling I am reminded of our perfect wedding day!

I don't even know where to begin with Colleen and her staff; Gloria Ferrer was a dream come true!Sent on 09/14/2015
This was the first venue we visited in wine country and as we left I told my husband that we didn't need to go anywhere else. The following week, we booked them for our wedding in June and it was literally the most perfect venue we could have ever asked for. The staff is amazing, prompt, and friendly, the wine and champagne is delicious, and the event coordinators are flexible and awesome to work with. I had the easiest time planning our wedding here and it turned out absolutely breath-taking. Within the venue there are so many options to choose from, it was like having four venues in one. We got ready upstairs, had our ceremony in the arbor overlooking the vineyard, then we did cocktails on the patio, dinner in the cave, and dancing in the tasting room. It was absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for anything more. Our guests are still talking about what an amazing venue and wedding it was, they were so amazed by the location.
I should mention that we live in Phoenix, AZ, so each time we visited leading up to the wedding, Alex and the bar staff were so welcoming and accommodating; we always left feeling so happy and reassured, knowing we had made the right decision. Colleen and her staff were equally awesome. Even through their remodel, she kept us up to date and sent pictures of their progress. She worked seamlessly with me and our wedding coordinator to ensure the day went off without a hitch. They went way above and beyond their call of duty in helping us and making sure that our wedding was everything we dreamed it would be, and I am so thankful that we were able to work with such incredible people on such a momentous occasion.
We would recommend Gloria Ferrer to anyone looking for a venue in Sonoma, and if we got to go back and do it all over again, there is no doubt in my mind we would choose them again.

Gloria Ferrer Winery has stunning views and well-kept grounds with vineyards and olive trees. Their staff is a pleasure to work with. Their large wine cave is an amazing venue for a wedding reception. Highly recommended venue for a winery wedding.
