    We had an exceptional wedding day at Valley Road!

    From our first meeting with Barbara and Stan, they were wonderfully hospitable and worked tirelessly to make our wedding a success. They worked closely with our planner to develop and execute the logistics and decor plan and were always quick with answers to questions. They even gave us Valley Road ornaments when we visited near the holidays and stocked the bridal suite and groom’s cottage with extra snacks and water on the wedding day, and overall really did a great job of making us feel welcome and at ease.
    We had our ceremony on the lawn, which has a beautiful view overlooking a lake and the mountains. Due to a ton of rain the day before, we’d thought the ground might be too wet to hold the ceremony outside, but we were happy to learn they have a pump system that dried out the ground beautifully. The view is really incredible from anywhere on the grounds- we took family portraits at a convenient wooden platform overlooking the lake, we were lucky to hit an early spring weekend with beautiful flowering trees which made a great backdrop, and Stan even took us up to the top of the vines after the ceremony for some additional couple shots with an unbelievable view overlooking the valley.
    Our reception was held in the barn, which includes a large deck, a large space for the bar and dancing, and a dining area. The dance area has three sets of doors that open up to provide an amazing view of the valley and a great semi-outdoor open feel. The combination of the deck and the dance area were excellent for cocktail hour and the dance party once the DJ got started, as people could flow easily between areas to chat or dance.
    The getting-ready areas were great too- there is a newly-finished groom’s cottage next to the lawn and a bridal suite on the top floor of the barn. Both are spacious, beautifully furnished and welcoming spots to relax and gear up for the day. The bridal suite had more than enough space (and mirrors) for seven of us to get ready- plus it looks out over the groom’s cottage and lawn so we could keep an eye on how things were developing through the day. It was also an excellent space for us and the wedding party to have available during the reception to refresh makeup or just have a quiet moment.
    Last but not least, the wine is genuinely great, both in quality and variety, and got us a ton of compliments from our guests! They even have two different types of sparkling wine, which are both delicious and a really fun addition to the menu. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue and we’ll definitely be back to the tasting room when we’re in town!

    Gem of a piece of Property with Upclose Mountain View’s

    We held my daughter's Wedding at Valley Road Vineyards...it was the venue’s first wedding! The property is spectacular with by-far the best views of all the winerys I visited. The mountains are so close you can almost touch them, there is a sparkling lake on the property, and the pictures from up top of the vineyard are glorious. The venue is pristine, beautifully designed with exquisite finishes...very tasteful and practical. Barbara and Stan have thought of everything. They were easy to work with, very accommodating of our needs, and a lot of fun.
    The barn, where the reception was held, is not your typical brown rustic looking box with no windows. It is all white inside, windows and open doors to Mountain View’s all around, and a huge wrap around deck. We held the ceremony outside by the lake.
    I am so pleased with our choice of this venue and only have great things to say!!
    And the wine....OMG. Guests were asking to take some home!!

    Valley Road Vineyards's reply:

    Thank you, Sharon! We were honored to share the day with your beautiful daughter and new son-in-law! What a terrific, loving family you have. Thank you for having the 'vision' to book our venue and being a delight to work with, as well!
