What a location. The grounds are amazing, the villas on the site were very nice. Me and my wife got married at the chapel st chaumette and we were given a wedding co-ordinator called Beth. She was so good in helping us. Getting us what we wanted and made the whole day go so well. We had our meals made by the on site chef and the food was amazing southern fried chicken and the beef were so good! The wines were so good too. I'm not much of a wine person but I was addicted to wines. Overall the staff are amazing. The grounds were not just good to look at but make exceptional photo opportunitys. If you was contemplating chaumette it's a massive thumbs up here. You would not be disappointed. I have nothing but good stuff to say and even if we did get stressed about anything our wedding co-ordinator Beth excelled and made our day so amazing.Sent on 04/27/2017

Dwane and I were married at Chaumette Winery October 9, 2016. We had been to two previous weddings at Chaumette and knew that it was the place for us. We had a Fall Chapel View wedding that exceeded our expectations. With the historic Chapel sitting in the background surrounded by woods, and Dwane and I standing under a beautiful fall Arbor, it was a spectacular setting to share with our family and friends. With the highly skilled professional staff, it made the planning easy and the execution flawless. On our wedding day the staff made sure that we had nothing to worry about. From a pre-wedding lunch for the wedding party , to opening the chapel doors for our magical entrance, to packing the gifts and decor at the conclusion of the reception--the staff did it all. Chaumette and their wonderful staff exceeded our expectations and everyone of our guests were so impressed with the location, the food, the decor and the beauty of our wedding Thank you ChaumetteSent on 10/26/2016

We had our Summer 2016 wedding at Chaumette and could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. The chapel, Barrel Room, villas, and spa . . . all came together to make it a perfect, intimate setting for us and all of our guests. The entire experience exceeded our expectations with wedding coordinator Beth, wine expert Rodney, and Chef Rob feeling like old friends or family by the end of our journey. We will celebrate our anniversary there every year and intend to make frequent trips throughout the year. We highly recommend Chaumette for anyone's wedding or special event, or just a weekend getaway.Sent on 10/11/2016

Not only is Chaumette beautiful on its own, the staff went above and beyond to make our day EXACTLY the way we wanted! We opted for the Sunday picnic wedding package and the bridal party spent the weekend in the Villas and enjoying wine, food, pool, and spa time together. The staff was so helpful leading up to the wedding, never pressured us into making decisions we were uncomfortable with, and answered all of our questions within 24 hours. With an outdoor venue, we had some concerns, but the staff always put our mind at ease with their recommendations and expertise. The only bummer was there was a wedding Saturday night and the villas/suites were all sold out, so our guests couldn't stay on property with us on Saturday, but what can you expect with such a beautiful venue! Wish I could relive the weekend again, and my husband and I are already planning to go back for our 1 year anniversary!Sent on 11/02/2016

Choosing Chaumette Winery was the best decision my husband and I could have made. It was stunning!! The food was amazing, the barn was beautiful, the ceremony was gorgeous, the service was impeccable but the best of all was Beth!!! She made our Wedding the most memorable experience a bride could have had. She was on top of everything for us and made sure the night went off without a hitch. She also decorated the Barn perfectly based on my instructions. She was an A Game Wedding Coordinator and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a different experience to hold your wedding and reception at Chaumette. Then all your friends and family stay in all the Villas for the after party. Absolutely loved this place! Thank you again - Becky O'Neill RomaineSent on 10/20/2016

I just had my wedding at Chaumette on 10-24-15. Everything was amazing. Our day-of Coordinator Sharon was great. They clearly have done this many times before and it definitely showed throughout our entire planning process and the day of our wedding. We ended up renting villas to stay in & get ready in - they were beautiful. It made everything so easy the day of already being there. If you do not want to rent the villas you are also able to get ready in the Spa area if you are getting your hair & makeup done by them. If you are not getting hair & makeup done by them you can use the downstairs locker room area (however this is not private). We had our wedding ceremony on the lawn outside of the barn. It turned out beautiful! We were forecasted for 90% chance of rain, but thankfully we ended up being clear all day! The good news though, if you do end up having rain they have great plan B options for rain. While waiting for the ceremony to begin we were able to hang out in a room they have right next to the bathrooms. It was heated and worked out perfectly so that guests weren't trying to find us before the ceremony. While we were waiting Sharon was very attentive and helped get the ceremony moving. For our reception we had it in The Barn. The barn is right next to the lawn that we had the ceremony at so it was very easy for guests to go straight from the ceremony into the barn for cocktail hour. There are SO many amazing places for photos on their property.If you are planning on having a wedding here I would allow extra time for photos because there are so many cool areas for great shots! Of course, the vineyards are a great place for photos. The willow grove area also looks great. We ended up taking most of our pictures around the barn and in the loft. The food was amazing! So many compliments! Overall - AWESOME staff & venue!Sent on 11/17/2015

Amanda · Married on 10/11/2014
My husband and I had several of our firsts at Chaumette, our first real "date," our first "I love you," and several big turning points along the way. It made sense to have our wedding there. So much so, that we surprised them by not asking for a tour prior to getting down to business. We knew the property of Chaumette could be magical, but we didn't know how fantastic the staff would be to work with. From the start Jackie and our wedding coordinator, Sharon, were easy to work with and listened carefully to our requests. They were supportive of our decisions, and made time to help us along the way. We had our ceremony at St. Vincent's Chapel, which was exactly perfect for our needs. We followed the wedding with a reception in the ballroom. I spent hours obsessing over decorations- all of which the staff happily put up for me while I was in the Spa getting ready with my bridesmaids. The ballroom is beautiful without decor, but with my individual touches it was exactly what I envisioned. Chaumette was everything I hoped for in a venue. The food was absolutely amazing. I had more guests comment on the food than any other part of the wedding (and I can't even take offense.. because the food was that good.) The scenery is gorgeous, and offers a wide range of photo options. Best of all, the property is full service, offering several options for ceremony, reception, and picture locations, as well as a beautiful Spa and Villa's for the wedding night. I can't imagine that my wedding could have been more beautiful than it was, or that it could have gone more perfectly than it did, and I have the staff at Chaumette to thank for making the experience so wonderful. If you want to have a winery wedding, Chaumette is a high class option with great tasting wine, and fantastic customer service.Sent on 12/10/2014

We used the spa for makeup and for the girls to get ready. My cosmetologist made sure my makeup looked perfect for me. The entire bridal party had lunch at the Tasting Room, Grapevine Grill. The food was delicious and a must on a very busy day. The staff did all the setup at the barn, so I didn't have to worry about it. They did an absolutely perfect job. It's hard to put into words the beauty of this venue. You have to visit and see it for yourself!
Thank you for such a beautiful experience!

Laura · Married on 08/30/2014
My husband and I were engaged in Napa, so we knew we wanted to bring the same winery theme to our wedding but closer to home. When we visited Chaumette for the first time, we were absolutely blown away by how beautiful and picturesque it was. The owner, Jackie, took us on a private tour of the grounds and spent well over 2 hours with us telling us the story behind the winery she owned with her husband and answering every question we had about having our wedding there.Sent on 10/28/2014
When I booked with Chaumette, I was assigned a wedding coordinator, Bri, who was there to help me with questions and keep me organized through the planning process. She was a total life saver especially since I lived over an hour away from Ste Genevieve and needed help with vendors.
My husband and I were married at Chaumette on August 30 and we couldn't be happier with decision of venue. We took full advantage of every amenity they had to offer including our rehearsal dinner in the Barrel Room, the Spa at Chaumette, the on-site villas and our ceremony and reception at the Barn. The Barn is tucked into a wooded corner on a hilltop, which makes it feel really private. The flowers and greenery planted around the Barn also makes it a gorgeous place for pictures (and helps save on florist costs!). Our ceremony was in August, so we were a little concerned about the heat and bugs. Luckily, there is a really nice breeze that passes through on the hilltop and the grounds are consistently sprayed for bugs so I didn't notice a thing! We had 154 guests and it didn't feel cramped at all, but I would not recommend going any higher in guest count. We had some friends and family who were gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian. They kindly provided different food options. Chef Adam is a serious asset to Chaumette. His food was incredible!
Overall, Chaumette is a really unique venue for a wedding and is complimented by an outstanding staff! Thanks a million!

I cannot really tell you how thankful I am for my experience at Chaumette. Everything was perfect. For a wedding experience, with all of its working parts, to be considered perfect is a major feat. The team worked hard to make sure that every detail was accounted for, that my personal needs were met, and they made accommodation on top of accommodation. Seriously,they made me gluten free cookies and used real lavender to make lavender syrup for a specialty cocktail. When I say they go beyond, I am not lying.Sent on 06/16/2014
The space is gorgeous, the landscape is amazing, and I have to also emphasize that the food is awesome. We come from a family of chefs and major foodies, and they could not stop raving about the food. Wedding food tasting fabulous?? Sign up here!!!
We made the event a reunion weekend and stayed in the villas and used the spa services. We also had our rehearsal cocktail event there as well. Every single person had the best time ever. The villas are gorgeous. The spa is amazing and beautiful. The rehearsal food and service was impeccable.
I have no regrets and just hope a friend of mine chooses to get married there, so I can experience Chaumette all over again!
Chaumette Vineyards & Winery's reply:Yes, wedding food should be absolutely fabulous, and we are thrilled that you and your guests who were foodies loved the meal!

Klaire · Married on 03/29/2014
We fell in love with the venue even though it is a little over an hour from our home, in Town and Country. We got married at a nearby Catholic Church so have nothing to say about the Chapel. Our wedding Coordinator did an outstanding job. She was forthcoming with suggestions and we mostly used vendors recommended by Chaumette. I can't stress how grateful we are that they were so accommodating. We were NOT easy to work with. We estimated that many of our friends and family would not be able to make the trip, but ultimately had an unbelievable turn out with just over 200 guests and almost no last minute cancels. And, the weather was quite chilly so we were very happy when solutions for seating everyone were provided. We made a mess of our seating chart and did not have numbers on the place cards. We realized this just hours before the wedding was taking place. The owner and our coordinator, Bri, did not act exasperated at our incompetence. Rather, they calmly helped us sort through and get it done. We thought it would fun and economical to do our own centerpieces. We did save a ton and they were gorgeous but not sure it was worth the stress. My aunt was supposed to help my mom finish them on Friday but she got distracted with getting her family settled in. The 23 round tables each had 4 mason jars (1 large and 3 small) on them to be filled with roses and babies breath. The owner jumped in and started putting them together until my aunt got there. She was very accessible. We had three delicious appetizers. The Korean Beef skewers were delish. I am told the gourmet pizzas and crab cakes were also fantastic. Our entree was beef brisket with scalloped potatoes, asparagus and ? can't remember. It exceeded our expectations. My salad was pretty but needed more dressing. If I had everything to do over again, I would chose this venue all over!Sent on 04/02/2014
We all stayed on site at the villas. They are expensive but well worth it. Absolutely beautiful and luxurious.

We got married at Chaumette in September in St. Vincents Chapel on the property. We then had our reception in the Ballroom with all services provided by Chaumette. We also had our rehearsal dinner in their Barrel Room the night before. All of the service we received was AMAZING. The Chapel is small and perfect. There is no other way to describe it. It has old style charm that you just can not find anywhere else. Lots of windows and natural lighting that made for wonderful pictures. There is a bridal suite below the chapel that is available for use. We used that for the final touches of getting ready and putting our dresses on. Also to hide from the Groom of course! We began planning our wedding almost a year prior to the date. Through that time they had a few changes in their wedding coordinators but all of them had the same thoughts and ways they treated us. They have very strict customer service and we were treated like kings and queens from the very first time we stepped foot on the property all the way through the event date. We stayed in a Villa for the night prior to and night of the wedding. The Villas are BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend that if you get married on the property that you get a villa for the time that you are there. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 02/10/2014
We went up several months prior to our event to have a FREE wine sampling and also to sample the foods that we would most likely be serving at the reception so that we could make final decisions and know exactly what we would be having. There is no way to describe how delicious this food is. We live an hour away from Chaumette and we go there as often as possible just to eat in the Grapevine Grill and drink some of our favorite wine! Chef Adam goes above and beyond to make sure every single dish is absolutely perfect!
I wish I could live this day over and over again because it was made to be absolutely perfect for us! I would recommend that venue to absolutely everyone !

Chaumette proved to be an amazing experience from start to finish for our July 2014 wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner on the porch overlooking the vineyards, our ceremony on The Barn lawn, and our reception in The Barn. Many of my guests stayed at the beautiful villas on site, coming early for a weekend getaway. Chaumette was a breath-taking location, the food was delicious, and the wine flowed freely. I appreciated how the staff worked tirelessly to help me plan and execute my nuptials. They guided me through the entire process and were incredibly flexible and available. The best part was that when the day finally arrived, they handled everything, and I was able to enjoy myself, my groom, and our guests without a worry for the details. I knew the staff at Chaumette would handle any hiccup that might arise. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.Sent on 11/01/2014

We were married in the Barn at Chaumette in October 2013. The Barn is the perfect rustic dream, creating an atmosphere like none other that I have experienced at a wedding. The natural beauty of the winery, and the barn venue create an ambiance that feels outside of the Midwest.The food at Chaumette is perfection, a quality you don't normally see at weddings that service hundreds of guests. Dinner at our rehearsal in the barrel room was delicious and intimate. Surrounded by wine barrels and candles, we dined on Chaumette chicken and homemade bread. Our pork at the wedding was such a unique pick, the menu was really a masterpiece. The night of our reception our guests kept complimenting the amazing food!Sent on 03/03/2014
My only complaint throughout the process was the turn over of the staff. I hope that this was a rare experience, and that they have finally settled in, because they have such a good thing going now. I was very nervous when our first wedding planner left, but Jackie Johnson swooped in, and really made our experience fantastic. The spa also had a lot of turnover, which was nerve racking, but when Katherine came into the picture, I immediately felt better. Jackie Johnson is also VERY good at her job--you wouldn't expect her to take on as many roles as she does as the owner of the winery--making sure that all of your wishes come true. A wearer of many hats, she is a truly talented individual, very classy lady, and was a pleasure to work with.We are so thrilled that we were able to share our love of this beautiful winery with our wedding guests, and that we have such wonderful memories from our absolutely perfect day.

My husband and I recently tied the knot at the newly restored Chaumette barn. Due to conflict with previous reserved venues, we contacted Chaumette only 13 weeks before our wedding. The wedding coordinator and managers were VERY helpful with quick getting things in order for the big day. They were very laid back and easy to get in touch with. Not only did the staff go out of their way to help us, the food and service was some of the best we've ever had at a wedding.The bar consisted of Chaumette's wine and local brews. Its been two months since our wedding, family and friends are still raving over the wonderful day.

Our son Jacob and daughter –in-law Annelise married at Chaumette on September 6, 2014. The winery facilities provided a first rate venue for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception and lodging. Jackie, co-owner, and Bree, event coordinator, were personal, professional, efficient and flexible. The food was prepared elegantly and tasted great. A nice selection of house wines was also delicious. The service was cheerful and genuine. There were many last many changes the most urgent being a change of venue for the wedding two weeks prior to the wedding date from a local church to an outside wedding area off the “Barn” where the reception was held. The weather also provided some last minute decisions but Jackie and Bree handled these challenges flawlessly. Their genuine concern over making sure everything went smoothly for the bride/groom and their families was evident. We stayed several nights in one of the villas modeled after a French Chateau. It was elegant, roomy, comfortable and true to its French heritage. What a benefit to have lodging on the event site and not have to travel after the wedding. Overall, we were extremely happy with our experience with Chaumette and would highly recommend this winery for a wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, lodging, dining or a get-a-away weekend.
