Such is the rich history of the area in which Rough & Ready Vineyard and Guesthouse finds itself, it was once a republic for a few short months midway through the 19th century.

Today, couples use it as a suitable space to be joined together in matrimony.

Choosing Rough & Ready Vineyards as our venue was the best decision ever! Megan was so easy to work with. She gave us all of the information we needed before hand and worked with us during the whole process.Sent on 07/23/2018
We the package we purchased included a 3 days and 2 night stay at the Ranch Home for up to 16 people. And they allow pets which is the main reason why we chose them! :)
We also purchased the 'Done For You' package which included all of the wedding decorations, set up and tear down. Megan worked with us in figuring out exactly what kind of decorations we wanted and what we didn't. We even provided a ton of DIYs and things we bought to include in the ceremony and reception and Megan was able to work with her team to set them all up!
The barn house was so cozy and welcoming! Everyone in our bridal party enjoyed staying at the place and had a good night's rest. We had such a wonderful time!
Thank you Megan for all of your help! :)

My now-husband and I were looking for a local wedding venue, as we both grew up in the area and getting married there was very important to us. We stumbled across this venue back in December and had our wedding there in July 2018. Meg and Megan (yes, both coordinators have the same names) were amazing. I made quite a few last-minute changes and they rolled with it, no problem. You get so much for your money, including amazing table decorations! I had no clue what I wanted, and they met with me multiple times to help me figure it out based on my style (they knew better than I did). The house is fantastic for the wedding party, as well. We all stayed there and had a great time! It sleeps about 16 and everyone was able to have a cozy bed to sleep in after the party. Our guests were raving about the setting! It is magical with the string lights, trees, and lawn during the reception, especially at dusk. The ceremony space is, of course, gorgeous, with the gazebo set against the trees and the vast lawn. Not that the venue can plan this (although the lawn helped), but we had dragonflies flying everywhere during the ceremony and during our recessional. It all just felt so dream-like! I cannot recommend this space enough!Sent on 08/05/2018

I recently hosted a retreat for a group of businesswomen at Rough & Ready Vineyard and Guesthouse. The staff was pleasant and professional and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our evening presentation. Our stay that night in the guesthouse was fantastic. The Guesthouse had everything we needed from dishes in the kitchen to comfortable beds in the rooms! I will definitely be hosting this retreat here again next year!Sent on 02/06/2016
