Amazing Wedding Experience!
We booked McConnell Estates as our venue based on the picture they painted of the barn renovation. Over the months we watched the renovation unfold and were so excited to have our wedding in that beautiful spot. When the pandemic hit we were devastated at the thought of losing our dream wedding. However Alex, Halie, and the rest of the team stepped in to ensure that we had the perfect pandemic wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was even better than we imagined. They even worked with us on how to livestream the ceremony for our family and friends at home. All our guests, both in person and at home, were very impressed by the venue. We can't say enough good things about working with Alex and the rest of the team!Sent on 08/01/2020

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

Beautiful Outdoor, Rustic Winery Wedding!
McConnell Estates Winery was not only the most beautiful location for our Fall wedding, but also has the most incredible staff and delicious wine. The staff was perfect and helped make our planning super easy and the day of absolutely gorgeous! The cost was completely reasonable considering we had an open bar with wine, sangria and beer, and a large outdoor setting for the ceremony and reception. We couldn't have asked for a better experience with all things considered this year (Covid-19 and the CA fires/smoke).Sent on 10/15/2020
