My husband and I had looked at a lot of different venues and knew that we didn't want the tradition church, golf resort, or inner city venue. We were starting to get a little discouraged because that is a lot of what you get in the Phoenix area. We came across a picture of the Windmill Winery online and decided to make the trip out for one of their bridal open houses. We live on the very west side of Phoenix so about half way there we were questioning our decision to ever head out there. Although when we arrived it was completely perfect and exactly what we were looking and waiting for. No busy streets, people, or noises; and the vintage country feel could not have embodied the both of us any better. I of course loved it right away but was even more surpised of how excited my husband was, because he of course wasn't thrilled about spending his ESPN time doing wedding things. We both knew right away that we would be getting married there, and uncertainties of the drive had almost turned into a positive. Besides the venue appearance itself the staff and owners were also the main reason we were so excited to be a part of the Windmill. They were all so friendly, down to earth, and detail oriented people. They were right on top of everything and genuinely seemed to enjoy helping us out and being a part of our big day! The day of was so easy going and organized, they set up and breakdown everything, so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The entire ceremony and reception was organized and so well run that we were able to not worry or wonder about anything, everything flowed smoothly from one thing to the next and everyone had a great time. Our flowers also turned out better than any picture or magazine I had brought in to show her, and everybody still talks the most about how beautiful they were. Thank you again to the Windmill and their staff for the most beautiful and wonderful day of our lives!!Sent on 04/11/2011

Amazing venue and staff!
We got married at the Windmill Winery in November 2019 at the brick arches and red barn. From start to finish everything went along with ease, and I always felt my questions and needs were not only heard but action was taken in making our once in a life time day become a reality. We started our Windmill Winery journey with Tana Sheets, she was amazing! She helped draft our contract and help guide us in making sure all the little details important to us were considered and communicated through to our venue support team. Karen Durham was our assigned coordinator; she too went above and beyond ensuring all would be perfect. Karen was calm and collected the day of and helped keep everything on track. I spoke to both Tana and Karen multiple times over the course of the year planning and they were always so responsive and helpful in their guidance. Angela Campo was also amazing! She helped organize our rehearsal at the wine tasting room and always had a smile on her face; she had a way of helping put your worries as ease. Angela, Karen, and Tana walked me to the barn before the ceremony to let me see how all the little details came together. It was a very special moment for me and I was so appreciative of all three of these women throughout the planning process and day of! Another thank you to the venue preferred DJ, Joel Gibbs, he was AMAZING! Joel helped make the reception be one of a kind and kept the energy alive the entire night. We used our own catering company, Bruce Brown Catering, who did an outstanding job as well. People, even months later, keep telling us how much fun they had, how great the food was, and how beautiful the venue was. Thank you Windmill Winery for our dream come true wedding!!Sent on 02/07/2020

You won’t regret booking with Windmill Winery
The Windmill Winery was AMAZING. We are from El Paso, TX. I was worried that the long distance would be messy and stressful but it was quite the opposite. Karen was just a text away with any questions I had and she responded within the same day if Not within that hour! Anything that the venue had to take care of was done with prestige class and timing. We received SO MANY compliments on the beauty of the venue.. it was serene and perfect! 100% happy with the service and the results of the Wedding Day :)Sent on 11/16/2019

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.
