Great local vineyard/rustic venue with friendly staff!
I fell in love with this cute winery when I went to another event here. I had no idea it was right behind my current home. I always see it off the freeway, but never thought to check it out. It is nice and secluded. The staff is so helpful and so friendly. I became a wine club member because their wine is lovely, and I loved coming to free concert nights during the summer. The aesthetic of the venue is quite beautiful and quaint. I love their little cottage where the restrooms are located. You would never know it was a restroom. They had 4 farmhouse tables, round tables, white folding chairs, high boy tables, and linens available to use and to rent. There were speakers available to use. There were plenty of trees to provide shade, and they also provided umbrellas too for shade. We used this venue for my bridal shower outdoors, and I had almost 50 guests. We had a self-serve bar. We had their blanc de blanc sparkling wine for mimosas, house-made sangria (which is soooooo good), rose, and their syrah. Their wagon/bar they used was soo cute and provided by the venue. Overall just a super cute venue that is close to home, and they also provided cute chalkboard signs too! They are remodeling their barn right now and will be hosting weddings in 2020. It's really great venue for anyone who wants to have that rustic and vineyard outdoor wedding. There's plenty of parking along the street or on venue grounds. If the barn was ready and my wedding was in 2020, I would totally have it here! I am getting married 10/19/19. This place is so beautiful. You will love it!Sent on 09/04/2019

From the beginning to the champagne popping end, Mcconnell fulfilled my wedding dreams!
Everything leading up to, and then my actual wedding day was a dream. Every little thing was thought of, and I had a stress free day. Kate answered every question I had, even if it may have been a silly one. The wedding package was more than I could have hoped for at a price that no where could match. Kate's priority was easing my mind and making sure I enjoyed the moments that Mcconnell helped make so special. I am so grateful to her team. From parking attendants, to decor, to set up, to tear down, to bartending, I wish I could relive it a million times. The venue was beautiful and our pictures turned out PERFECT. The house back drop, the vineyards, the fields, the barn, so many places to choose from.Sent on 12/13/2019

Amazing Customer Service
They have made this process extremely easy. This is the first year they are offering weddings in an old refurbished barn on site. It was not in great condition when I booked them but with the help of Katie she made it very easy to picture my wedding there. She has been sending me update pictures and visions for the barn which has helped tremendously in planning the wedding! So excited to get married here in May!Sent on 09/06/2019
