Where to start...both Brian and Cindy at Keswick made our wedding day feel like a complete fairy tale and we are so incredibly thankful for all that they did to provide us with a safe, socially distanced ceremony and reception when two other sets of wedding locations and venues/vendors cancelled on us completely during covid and gave us no options. Their property is the most beautiful vineyard I've ever been to--and I used to frequent the Sonoma/Napa area when I lived in CA--it couldn't even compare! Keswick had so much beauty to it and it was a gorgeous day weatherwise which made it even better! I don't know what we would have done if they hadn't agreed to let us have our small and intimate wedding there. We had already hit so many roadblocks prior to coming to them and will just forever be grateful for the gift they provided us with their ability to empathize and then being so so helpful during the extremely short timeframe and helping us find new vendors and getting everything together. I will never be able to put into words what it felt like to walk down the aisle on their gorgeous property with music and all of our friends and family there--it truly was magical and I felt like I was in a dream that i never wanted to end! Even our friends and families mentioned to us that they had never been to such a beautiful wedding (and this was all planned in under a few weeks)! They do a free tasting for you to pick out wines for your reception and their wine is also incredible--everyone raved about the Cab Franc and we signed up for their wine club right away and look forward to visiting in the future! We will always hold this place very near and dear in our hearts and forever be grateful for the memories and experience they gave us.Sent on 09/09/2020

Have your wedding at keswick!
Wow! Keswick Vineyards was a dream! We hired Brian as our day of coordinator and he did a fantastic job! The weather was on and off raining and he made sure we had the most perfect day! He kept checking on my fiancé and I and we had our dream ceremony in front of the fountain!! Everything went so smoothly!! If you are worried about rain with it being an outdoor venue, don’t be!! This venue is perfect, rain or shine!! We will cherish Keswick forever!!Sent on 09/27/2020
Keswick Vineyards's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words Erin! These photos look incredible! I'm over the moon with happiness for the two of you and that you finally had your beautiful wedding. Happy to have been a part of it! :)

Keswick is amazing
Keswick deserves a special, detailed review because they saved the day a number of times and constantly exceeded our expectations. When we first found Keswick, we saw a promotional video from a number of happy couples who said that Cindy, Brian, and all Keswick staff made them feel like family. My then-fiancé was immediately sold...I was a little more skeptical, thinking through scenarios that would make those couples want to say these things...but I later found out that Keswick was everything those couples said it would be and more.Sent on 10/22/2020
Lucky for us, I toured Keswick with Brian and immediately loved the venue, and we were sold. We also hired Brian as our month-of coordinator, which may have been the best money we have ever spent. Planning went pretty normally through the following months, we were set to meet with Keswick at the venue on 3/15/2020 to discuss the event and walk through everything. The walk through went well, even though we were unsure what the future would hold considering world events. The very next day, CDC guidelines forced our hand to postpone and we called Brian, with a plan to try to reschedule. When he answered, he took the reins, had the best approach, being in a position of knowing all the vendors already, and really saved the day. He worked with every single one of our vendors to reschedule, fix contracts, and point out where vendors could help us by being more flexible. I really don’t know what we would have done without Brian and Cindy at Keswick. They saved our wedding, and continued to deliver, up until sending us a lovely card a week after our wedding. Just one small example, our initial rehearsal dinner location closed down, and Brian helped us pivot quickly, and find a lovely new spot. This was all in addition to what we expected for their services, which was help on the day of; Keswick exceeded expectations there as well. Brian and Cindy handled everything from start to finish! I’m not someone who stresses the little things, so it was awesome to have them there to handle it all. Our wedding guests commented endlessly on how smoothly the event went and how wonderful it all was, and while our other vendors (who were all also great, almost all recommended by Keswick) were a massive contributing factor, Brian and Cindy brought it all together, and my husband and I knew the entire time they were in our corner, devoted to making our day perfect. As a side note, Keswick has also worked very hard to heed all necessary health and safety guidelines to make all guests comfortable at their venue.
I’m not sure how we could ever repay Keswick for saving the day for us over and over during such a strange time. Hopefully this glowing review (which covers only a little of why Keswick is amazing) can cover a small bit of that.

My husband and I fell in love with this venue right away. From the incredible views, amazing staff and the best venue it made our wedding more than I could’ve hoped for. The owner and everyone who works there go above and beyond to be overly accommodating. They made planning a wedding in another state across the country very easy. They answered all my questions immediately and We’re quick to help me pick the perfect vendors. My husband and I are so happy we chose Keswick to be apart of our special day.Sent on 11/26/2019

Keswick Vineyards is one of the most beautiful venues that I've ever seen and is the absolute perfect place to get married. Everything is so thoughtfully set up from the bride and groom's rooms to the multitude of ceremony spots to the gorgeous reception tent.

Keswick Vineyards is the best wedding venue!!

A venue that will have you on Cloud Wine
Saying it was a dream wedding doesn’t do justice to what Keswick Vineyards was able to provide us. From our first visit, my wife’s teared up eyes said it all. After 10+ tours across Richmond and Charlottesville, we knew this was “the one.”
Throughout the entire planning process and day of coordination, the team at Keswick went above and beyond to deliver on their promise to us. I would say we are pretty good planners, but we would have never expected the level of detail that a venue could offer us and provide an experience that was enjoyable and one to be excited about. This is a family business, and it comes across in everything they do. And trust me, it comes across to your guests as well. With roughly 125 guests, mainly from out of town, they were WOWed by the beauty of Keswick Vineyards and experienced a true destination wedding tucked away in Central Virginia.
We highly recommend this venue for your wedding 😊 And it doesn’t hurt that they have amazing wine too! We are now wine members and enjoy coming back to visit their tasting room. Their staff is always kind, considerate and go out of their way to make you feel special. Having our wedding at Keswick, I feel like we are partners in wine and joined an amazing family who hold a special place in their hearts for Keswick Vineyards.

We were thrilled with the services Keswick provided! From beautiful grounds, to incredible staff relationships, to great attention to detail- Keswick could not have been a better experience.

Lacey · Married on 06/08/2019
We had an absolute blast at our Keswick Vineyards wedding! Wedding parties and guests can always be a bit unpredictable, and it's a big deal to me that the most stressful part of wedding planning was hoping my guests and family would behave.
Cindy and team were absolute rockstars, and being someone who is relatively type A, it amazed me how easy it was to hand the reins over to the Keswick team. They were incredibly flexible, professional and kept the flow of the evening going perfectly.
I couldn't imagine having a better wedding and it is 100% thanks to the team at Keswick!Sent on 06/12/2019
Keswick Vineyards's reply:Lacey, thank you so much for your kind words! Our whole team absolutely adored you both. Talk about an organized bride! You made our job so easy and your parents were such fun to work with! Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of being such an integral part of your day and we wish the both of you many many years of happiness!! Come back and visit us on your anniversary!

Amazing venue! Beautiful wedding!
Keswick was wonderful! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and private and the staff was incredible. Throughout the entire process, they were extremely helpful and responsive and very attentive on the wedding day. In addition to everything else, they took lots of pictures at no extra charge and shared them with us after, which nearly doubled the amount of photos that we had. Our photographer left before a lot of the dancing and so the photos that Keswick took allowed us to capture memories we otherwise wouldn't have. I could not recommend them any higher!Sent on 02/08/2020

Above and beyond expectations. Incredible staff. Gorgeous space. Do it!!
We are so grateful to the Schornberg's and the phenomenal team at Keswick Vineyards for going above and beyond to make our wedding the unforgettable day that it was. Indeed, Keswick Vineyards will truly always be special to us and be an integral part of our happily ever after. Right from the start, the team's professionalism, attention to detail, and compassion was a huge support to us as we navigated the planning process. Everyone went above and beyond on our wedding day to make sure it was an absolute blast for us and all of our family & friends in attendance.
A particular aspect of our experience working with Keswick was the team's excellent communication. The check-in messages we received from Cindy (owner) and Brian (Event Coordinator) (6 month, 90 day, 1 month, etc.) not only helped us stay on track, but were also incredibly uplifting (helped us get "hyped" for the big day as we counted down). And both during the lead up and on the big day itself, Brian and his team perfectly balanced being attentive to our needs while having a "light touch" so that we could enjoy the perfect day that it was. It really showcased the Keswick team's talent and experience while also making us feel like we really had the A team in our corner. And they gave us great recommendations for vendors and guidance during our planning process.
Thank you again, Cindy, Brian, Colleen, and everyone at Keswick Vineyards for creating this amazing memory for us. We look forward to visiting the winery and cherishing our amazing wedding day at Keswick.Sent on 11/27/2019
Keswick Vineyards's reply:Wow Billy! A huge thank you to you and Megan for all of your kind words. It was truly a treat to have played a role in your wedding. We will remember it and your smiles always and dearly. The two of you are so special. Congratulations and we wish nothing but the happiest ever after for you both!

An Amazing October Wedding at Keswick Vineyard
From the moment my daughter and I drove along the picturesque drive up to Keswick Vineyard on a chilly, sunny January morning, and toured the beautiful grounds and carriage house, also enjoyed a wine tasting, we were sold! No need to look elsewhere for a wedding venue - done deal. It was a special feeling and I reflect on it almost a year later. Cindy, Keswick's owner, with her beautiful smile, was warm and inviting and truly knows her stuff. Very professional and thorough from our initial meeting to wedding day. And so enjoyed our interaction with their wedding coordinator, Colleen. Beautiful person and so very kind and polite. Quick and responsive to every email and phone call. Truly, a top-knotch team. My daughter's wedding at Keswick in October will forever be a beautiful, magical memory. Keswick is a very special place!Sent on 12/04/2018

Our wedding at Keswick Vineyards was absolutely perfect on 9-29-18. Keswick's Day of Coordination services was outstanding.

Beautiful venue - loved it!
Keswick was our dream venue, and we were so happy we chose it! The views and gorgeous tent, along with access to the awesome carriage house, make Keswick particularly special. Not to mention, we love their wine (worth becoming a gold member for the discounts)! Our guests still rave about the views almost a year later. I will say that we found the cost a bit high though not unreasonable for the area and the industry. There were a lot of additional charges for things along the way that could be included given how high the rental fee is (even some of our vendors were surprised by the additional charges for items onsite like the pergola, extra wine barrels, shepherds hooks, etc), but this is something we found to be the case throughout the wedding planning process and in the end, it was all worth it. They are also very up-front about what's included and what's not, and it was helpful to not have to go through another vendor for those items.
Cindy and Colleen were sweet and helpful - even though we had a friend doing our day-of coordination, Cindy's expertise and experience helped ensure everything went perfectly, including watching the weather for us (every rainstorm went right around us - that mountain is magical). Since we were planning our wedding from DC, it was tough to make visits during the week and while it was clear this was not ideal, they were willing to work with us on that.
We have no regrets and are glad we picked a venue we can keep coming back to visit to relive all the happy memories.Sent on 03/05/2019
