Amazing venue with staff that go above and beyond!
Our experience with Mount Hope Estates and Winery was amazing. From our first contact with Nicole, the Group Sales Manager, to our tour of the venue, we knew this is where we were meant to be married. We had a micro-wedding May 16, 2021, with 24 guests. The ceremony location at the back of the mansion and the reception in the distillery were absolutely beautiful. Also, use of the bridal suite for hair/make-up was so convenient. The photo opportunities on their grounds are stunning! The entire staff went above and beyond to make our day perfect and the attention to detail was impeccable! Nicole also connected us with Doug, who was our Officiant and who was so much fun to work with! Food was amazing and as I have to eat gluten free, the Chef came up with the most delicious alternatives, so I could fully enjoy the food too! Our package included an open bar and if you have never had Mount Hope wines, ciders, mead and spirits, you have to try them! All of our guests raved about every aspect of our wedding. Thank you Nicole and the entire Mount Hope team for making our day more than we could have ever imagined! Stef and JaySent on 06/26/2021

The perfect venue and an amazing team
We booked the Barn at Mount Hope for our wedding in March of 2019. Little did we know it would be rescheduled twice due to Covid-19. Nicole worked with us through everything from start to finish, twice and even sent us small tokens to let us know we weren't forgotten over the two years. We really appreciated her attention to detail and her willingness to help us in this crazy hectic time. Nicole and her team were amazing from 2019 to 2021 and we couldn't have been happier with the event. The wine was delicious and we made new cider fans out of some family members with that amazing blueberry cider. The Barn was a gorgeous venue for the wedding we had and the Renaissance Fair backdrop only added to the feeling. It was a truly magical evening for us.Sent on 04/28/2021

Everything I could have asked for!
My husband and I had a micromony at Mount Hope, it was a small but packed a punch. The time Nicole took to understand what we wanted for our big day made a world of difference. They CARE! From the moment you decide you are interested and want a tour, to picking a menu, to choosing where on the property you want your event, they are on it.
We're big foodies, so naturally good cuisine was a priority for us. The chef literally made our dream menu and then it was paired delicious beverages. I highly recommend the coconut cream rum!
Every staff member that was part of our day really went above and beyond.Sent on 05/03/2021
