It also features a spacious wraparound deck for cocktail hours, to ensure that your guests are never starved of the view. For more intimate gatherings, The Library can host up to 60 guests for rehearsal dinners and day-after brunches. Large windows surround the setting for a glorious view of the rolling acres. Soon-to-be-weds can also take advantage of the large wine bar and catering prep kitchen inside. This winery’s tasting room, SIP, holds a bar made of reclaimed sheet metal, and modern seating for up to 100 guests to enjoy prenuptial get-togethers. Couples and their wedding party can prepare in luxury in the onsite-dressing suites, The Loft and The Lodge.

    Beautiful Vineyard Venue

    We have lived in the Charlottesville area for several years now. Ever since moving back I have admired the beautiful red barn at Valley Road as a potential wedding venue and I am so thankful that we chose to host our big day here. Barbara and Stan were wonderful to work with and were extremely responsive and helpful. This venue is great because you can host your ceremony indoors or out and either will turn out beautifully with the mountains in the background. I cannot recommend this venue enough for anyone planning a rustic/barn/vineyard wedding!

    Valley Road Vineyards's reply:

    April and Nick, You two -- and your families -- have been so delightful to get to know and work with in the planning of your wedding and Rehearsal Dinner. We are just so happy that you chose to have your stunning wedding here at Valley Road. And I was especially grateful that the weather cooperated so that you could get your vineyard photos in -- they are stunning, just like the two of you! Hoping to seeing you both often in the years to come... All our best, Barbara, Stan, and the entire Valley Road Vineyards team

    Not so hidden gem

    We had our wedding at VRV in October 2021, and everything was fantastic. First of all, we had been to Charlottesville many times but had yet to see VRV (probably because it is somewhat new). If you're familiar with wineries in the area but not VRV, don't let that deter you. It is an absolutely stunning venue and the team is extremely helpful, communicative, professional, and experienced in events. Barbara and her team will make you feel like family and are very responsive to their brides/grooms (which is super important when you're stressed over details). Part of the reason we chose this venue is because the indoor-outdoor space was great for COVID. Our guests commented that they felt very comfortable inside because of all the large barn doors that were open and provided ventilation. They also provide stunning views of the mountains. 10/10 recommend!

    Valley Road Vineyards's reply:

    Natasha and Charlie,

    Thank you for choosing Valley Road for your wedding... It has been our absolute pleasure to get to know you both over the past year + and to help you create the most special day ever! And what a day it was! We hope you will alway consider VRV your home-away-from-home when you visit Charlottesville; please visit us often! All our best -- Barbara, Stan, Alex, and all of us at Valley Road Vineyards

    Extraordinary

    We had many doubts about our “COVID Wedding” going smoothly months before our big day on August 22, 2020. Sarah at Valley Road Vineyards helped us through all of our concerning points, big or small, with no sense of seeming troubled by tasks she may have never even thought about being a thought or issue when she went into this business. Our day was beyond amazing. As all wedding days are quite a whirlwind, all parts of the day went very smoothly and seamlessly, and safe! What a bonus that this venue is on some of the most beautiful land with stunning views; rain or shine. I would recommend Sarah and her team at Valley Road Vineyards 100 percent. We wish we could do it all over again!

    Valley Road Vineyards's reply:

    Carolyn & Calvin, Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure (as well as the rest of Team VRV) to help your day go exactly as you had envisioned -- full of love & laughter, beautiful, fun, and safe! It has been wonderful working with you over the last year and I really appreciate you working with me to handle of all the twists and turns that COVID handed you. Wishing you two all the happiness in the world -- and hoping that we see you back soon (not just in Frosé season)! Best -- Sarah (plus Barbara, Stan, and all of us at Valley Road Vineyards)
