Our wedding was everything we hoped for and more due to this wonderful venue. Ventosa Vineyards is the perfect place to get married! From their breathtaking views, to their fabulous food, we were thrilled with everything.
Planning a wedding from out of state can be difficult, but from day one R.J. and Michael were wonderful. We communicated mostly by email but they were always available to answer any questions that came up and were also great when working with both of our parents who live locally. We held a rehearsal the day before on site where Michael walked us through how the day would go. I really appreciated how attentive he was to the details we had envisioned yet was very relaxed about making sure it would all be set up the way I had hoped. The staff's relaxed nature helped me feel confident that I could pass the reigns to them and that everything would be handled well.
Both the ceremony site behind their estate and the ballroom are absolutely stunning locations with fabulous views. Our guests who hadn't been there before were floored at the beauty of the vineyard and the view of the lake. It was the perfect backdrop for when we said our vows and celebrated with our family and friends. Phyllis was very helpful during dinner and made sure that we, as well as our parents, had everything we needed. We were also personally visited by the chef to make sure we were satisfied with the food, a very thoughtful gesture.
I would highly recommend Ventosa as a wedding location, not just for their beautiful view or their spectacular food, but for the one on one attention and the relaxed and confident vibe. There really is no better place in the Finger Lakes to get married!

Having our wedding at Ventosa was a dream- from the first time we toured the venue, we felt listened to and taken care of by RJ and his staff. They worked with us throughout the 2 years leading up to the wedding to make sure we had everything we needed to make the day perfect. The day of, they were extremely accommodating and helpful, allowing family to come early to set up and move things as needed but they did the majority of the set up themselves. Our day-of coordinator Chris was so lovely to work with and made sure everything ran smoothly. We didn't stress or worry at all and were able to enjoy the day without any glitches. The venue itself is so beautiful and gives a fantastic view of Seneca Lake. The food was excellent- hands down the best food I've ever had at a wedding, and all our guests agreed! I would so highly recommend Ventosa for a wedding- it was better then we ever dreamed our wedding could be.
This is truly an amazing venue. They do whatever it takes to make the bride and groom happy on their special day. Best views in the Finger Lakes. RJ and the whole team are great to work with.
As a wedding planner, I have high expectations from venues. Ventosa does a superb job with weddings! Both RJ and Aileen were easy to reach with questions etc. which made planning so much easier, but where they truly shine is on the day of the event. Very organized and flexible. The food (all homemade) was delicious and served quickly. And the views - so gorgeous. I highly recommend Ventosa for weddings and other events - fantastic!
RJ and the staff at Ventosa are professionals. Me and my team entertain there all the time and the food, staff & room always deliver beyond expectation. One of our favorite venues.
