Amazing venue for our nature based wedding

The running hare is a breathtaking venue to host your wedding. My wife and I wanted a nature based vibe for our wedding and the running hare delivered. Our guests were amazed when they stepped into the winery. The staff also worked closely with us and were flexible to make sure our vision and needs were met. This was also the few vendors that could cater to our guest size.

The wine, vineyard and staff are worth it !

I have nothing but great things to say about Taylor and her team. Taylor and her team were super responsive with any question or request we had for our big wedding day. The day of planning on the venue was great despite having to move the ceremony indoors due to the rain. I highly recommend planning an event/wedding here. The wine, vineyard and staff are worth it !
