I had my wedding at Winehaven on August 27, 2016. It may seem insincere to give 5 stars to Winehaven in every category, but it isn't; they were flawless throughout the planning process and finally to the day of the wedding. They never failed to make me feel like the only bride of the summer. Upstairs is a large, private area for preparation where I had my hair and makeup done onsite. As I sat upstairs with my bridesmaids, I knew Amy, the event coordinator, and the Petersons would be working to make the day a success. My guests raved about the food, the venue and of course the very accommodative staff. During dinner, a wine pour of Winehaven wines was a very nice touch and introduced the guests to the many wonderful wines which were made from the grapes outside! My husband is from California, as were many of his guests, so a sprawling, vibrant vineyard in Minnesota was a perfect fit. Before the wedding, I worried about the flow of events throughout the evening but Amy was fabulous at making the evening flow effortlessly. My family and I are so happy with the day, and all the credit goes to this amazing venue. Thank you Winehaven!

Taylor and the entire Winehaven Team were amazing to work with, starting with the first day that we toured! We fell in love with the venue instantly and from that moment on, they were a dream to work with! Leading up to the big day, everyone was so accommodating and responsive to all of our questions, making the entire process so much more easy than anticipated. Taylor worked with us for the entire 11 months of planning, available via email or phone whenever we needed her. When it came to the big day, the whole team helped put together the venue, making it absolutely perfect! We are so happy we chose Winehaven for our big day!

My husband & I got married at Winehaven in July. I am absolutely blown away with my experience. From the winemaker & his son to the wedding coordinator (Heather & Taylor- wow are they keepers)....they truly provide the best customer service. They made us feel so special. The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking. After our ceremony, my husband & I had a private table set up in the vineyard to have a private moment for 15 minutes while our guests made their way to social hour. The little details this venue & family are willing to do for you, make all the difference on your day! Our guests raved about the beauty and how unique their experience was. We went back to Winehaven for our 1 year anniversary and they totally took care of us and STILL made us feel like royalty. This place will forever hold a special place in our hearts. I 100% recommend hosting your wedding at Winehaven!
