I feel like no review could do justice to how amazing the Windmill Winery is! Out of all of our vendors and our whole planning process, the Windmill Winery stands out so much as the best decision we made. I can't even start to describe how easy and wonderful the entire planning process was, I feel like I had zero stress the entire time because the team was so wonderful. We had our wedding at the Lakehouse on 9/22/18 and it was absolutely perfect. When we first went to an open house here a little over a year ago we already had pretty much made our mind up on a different venue however thought we would do our due diligence and check it out before committing to our first choice after touring several venues around Phoenix. When we arrived we were blown away by how beautiful the property was as well as how fantastic all the packaged vendor options are (especially Kiss the Chef who we went with for catering). We immediately fell in love however right off the bat assumed there is no way we could afford to host our wedding at this nice of a venue, then were completely shocked to learn the same date with the same package for our 120 person guest count would actually run us a full $6000 less than our original venue which paled in comparison. I am still in awe of how above and beyond our included day of coordinator Lisa was, she truly thought of everything and walked us through the whole process. She would even email me back at odd times like Saturday nights, I can't express how amazing/kind/organized she was and our wedding could not have been nearly as well planned and executed without her. The Lakehouse was the perfect size for our wedding guest count, the food was amazing, we could even add in a photo booth and beer donkey which were a huge hit with all our guests. The shuttle service to and from the local hotel was also amazing because guests didn't have to worry about parking or getting a ride home. Absolutely beautiful wedding venue with even more fantastic staff!Sent on 10/03/2018

Beautiful Experience, Wonderful Day!!!
I cannot say enough good things about this venue. The value you get for the price is unsurpassable and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. Added bonus was the all-inclusive feature of catering, DJ and cake being part of the package. There are several vendors to choose from in each category and everything is absolutely amazing. We received tons of compliments from our guests and everyone had a fabulous time. Our Event Coordinator, Karen, helped to ensure that everything went absolutely smooth and as planned...there were no hidden surprises taking away from the happiness and beauty of the day! Thank you to the entire Windmill Winery staff and this place is a definite recommend!!! With love, Justin & Kim Thelen
The Windmill Winery is one of my favorite wedding venues in Arizona. Both sides of the property have so much to offer! Perfectly decorated getting ready rooms, a variety of backgrounds for pictures, scenic locations on the water, and some of my favorite reception spaces. The rustic chic feel of this property is a bride's dream.
Gorgeous Venue! Friendly, helpful and wonderful staff and owners. They do a great job : )
What a great hidden treasure! This venue is breathe taking, the staff are great to work with and every event always go so smoothly!
