Beyond amazing experience!
This review is LONG overdue. We got married at Priam Vineyards in October 2018, and we could not have been happier with our choice to get married here! The venue is absolutely gorgeous! We got married in front of the vines, and just beyond that you see the rolling hills filled with the colors of fall foliage! Everything from the wedding contract, to the menu tasting provided by Gourmet Galley, to the rehearsal, to the day of the wedding was smooth and seamless. Gloria, Jim, and their entire staff work so hard to make your day everything you hope and dream it will be. The service and attention they provided was light years beyond what we expected! We have and will continue to recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful vineyard wedding.Sent on 10/13/2019

Our wedding day was nothing less than perfect, even on a rainy chilly day. I would recommend this venue to any couple. It was beautiful. And the wine is the best!! The catering company that Priam uses is awesome! I did not hear one complaint about ANY of the food. Gina from Gourmet Galley was amazing.Sent on 10/26/2018

Thank you Priam Vineyards and your wonderful staff for making my day so memorable! The tasting room felt cozy yet sophisticated! The wine selection was rich and spectacular! I especially liked the Westchester Red and the Blackledge Rose! Bringing home a case for the holidays. I will be back and I will recommend Priam to all my friends.Sent on 12/15/2017

Our wedding was more than I was hoping for! While Priam was a little off the beaten path for our out of state guests, it made for the perfect New England setting that i could not pass up and it definitely paid off! The grounds were beautiful and the tent turned into everything in my dreams! Gloria was there to congratulate us which was so nice! We were so grateful to use her vineyard for our special day! Our guests raved about the grounds, the view, the fire pit and most importantly THE WINE! I've never seen people take so many photos of their surroundings at a wedding than they did at ours! If you want a beautiful vineyard wedding, check out Priam! Could not have been better! Thank you Priam! We'll be coming back regularly to reminisce!Sent on 09/21/2017

Alex & I had our wedding Saturday August 19, 2017 at Priam Vineyards and it was nothing short of amazing! We were absolutely blown away by the amazing services provided by the staff. The vineyard is beautiful and their wines are so delicious. We were very well taken care of. Gloria and Jim of Priam Vineyards, and Gina of Gourmet Galley, were super helpful, a pleasure to work with, and are just overall incredible people. Thanks again!Sent on 09/26/2017

Priam Vineyards was the perfect venue for our wedding! It was absolutely stunning from the ceremony in the vines to the reception in the tent. Everything was perfect and all members of Priam and the catering company work hard to make our day perfect! From the initial meeting with Gloria to the wedding day, communication was always smooth and professional. Everyone at Priam was a pleasure to work with. The vineyard is by far our favorite place to be! It is absolutely breathtaking and peaceful! Our wedding was a 120 guests but the tent felt full and everyone was complimenting the views. We even had a fire pit which added to the ambiance of the evening. We would highly recommend Priam Vineyards to anyone who is looking for great views, great wine, and perfect wedding!Sent on 08/02/2017

When my husband and I first got engaged, we knew that Priam Vineyards was where we wanted to get married. We had been to other vineyards, but none compared to Priam. The wines are fantastic and the setting is beyond breathtaking. The staff were so accommodating, helpful, easy going and kind. We were blown away with Gourmet Galley's amazing food, presentation and professionalism. Gina is an amazing, flexible coordinator who went above and beyond for our day. She made sure on our wedding day everything was absolutely perfect, even the sangria, made especially for our day. Gloria is such a pleasure to work with and we were always well taken care of. She made sure everything was flawless and beautiful. Our family and friends are still raving about the vineyard, the beauty of it, the delicious food, and outstanding staff/service. Priam became part of our family. We cannot thank you enough for such a memorable wedding. Our pictures cannot show enough the amount of love and happiness that was expressed that day. Thank you Priam for everything and making us feel like family. I would highly recommend this vineyard.

Absolutely perfect! The venue itself is beautiful and the service from selecting the venue through the last dance was amazing. Christine, Gary, and Gloria were wonderful to work with and most importantly there was not one worry I had during my wedding day. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to get married and a more easy process to plan with this team. Thank you Priam!!!Sent on 07/07/2015

This was the only reception venue that my husband and I ever went to look at, from the moment we saw it we knew this was where the reception would take place. Start to finish it was a great experience and I was so impressed with how the event turned out. We've gotten nothing but compliments on the day and truly couldn't be happier with Priam.Sent on 06/22/2015
Christine was a lifesaver and such a help to me throughout the planning process. She answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly and thanks to her our reception was perfection. Jeremy and I are so grateful to the entire team and are so thankful we chose Priam!

From the start of our time as an engaged couple, Gary and Gloria were in our corner. They actually helped me propose to my wife. Over the years of getting to know them and the staff it became clear that it was the only real option for our special day. They get to know you on a level that allows them to create something true to your love and your vision.Sent on 06/16/2015
The wine: amazing. Rave reviews from everyone who attended. As a side note: the fact that they are truly devoted to growing estate wines rather than importing grapes from other locations really makes this a Connecticut true location.
The staff: All hands on deck. Flexible and thorough. You never have one of those 'where are they/what is going on/ moments.
Day of vibe: the vineyard is all yours. You know there isn't a later or earlier scheduled wedding that you need to work around. So relaxed. So personal.
The value: getting married in Connecticut can be expensive. I for one believe that anything worth doing is worth doing the right way. Priam Vineyards derives so much value out of the simple fact that you are guaranteed to have something so beautiful, so personalized, and so professional. We are still getting an outpouring of compliments on everything about that day.
For what it is worth: I don't believe there is a vendor out there that will do more to make your day special. A beautiful place that stands out amongst so many wedding factories with true devotion to giving the best experience to anyone lucky enough to have found and chosen them. Forever a part of our story and our hearts.
Priam Vineyards's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. All of the couples become part of the Priam Vineyards family. Each wedding, and the happiness of the couple is so important to us. To experience the magic of your engagement through to the completion of your wedding was such a wonderful, heartwarming experience for us all.

When looking for a wedding venue, one of the many things that were important to us was the people running the show. Christine, Gary and Gloria were so great! They were extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day and all the planning leading up to it was perfect!Sent on 06/16/2015

We chose Priam Vineyards not only for the beautiful location, but because right from the start Gloria and Gary made it clear that our wedding would be special, and that they would do everything they could to make sure our wedding day was everything we’d hoped for. It was also clear from the start that we weren’t just another event on their schedule. Every time we visited the vineyards, whether it be to check out the layout or to taste the wines, they were friendly, inviting, and made us feel like honored guests. The same can be said of their Wedding Coordinator, Christine, who, even long distance (we live in VA), was very easy to work with. She was very responsive, thorough, and always took the time to answer any questions we had, regardless of how menial they seemed. They were also super flexible with our wedding day plans (we had a few changes the week of), and did their best to make things as easy and stress-free as possible. Both the rehearsal and day of the wedding were seamless. The venue looked absolutely beautiful and they followed our instructions for décor exactly as we’d indicated. Our guests all raved about the beautiful location and how fabulous the ceremony and reception went. It was such a great feeling to not have to worry about anything the day of our wedding, as we knew it would all be taken care of. We’ll definitely be stopping back at Priam every time we’re in town to catch up with Gary, Gloria, and Christine, and absolutely recommend Priam Vineyards to any couple looking for a unique, beautiful, and warm-welcoming wedding venue.Sent on 07/03/2015
Priam Vineyards's reply:We are so grateful to be given the priveledge of being a part of this very important day in your life. It is truly an honor and replenishes the spirit of us all being involved in the steps along the way.

Priam Vineyards made all of our wedding dreams come true! Not only was it a great location but Gloria and Gary made the planning process of our big day so stressfree and effortless. Everything was so beautiful and not a single detail was left out! They were truly a great pair to work with. The location itself is truely unique and during our October wedding the scenery at the vineyard was breathtaking. All of our guests continue to talk about the amazing experience they had with the outdoor wedding ceremony & reception, including the plus of having full size bathrooms and a bon fire!!! The continued compliments reassure us that we made the right choice with Priam Vineyards! We were so pleased with the intimate feeling that was created for our smaller guest count and the extra effort that was put in to make our day so special! Gloria and Gary were so accommodating for anything that we wanted and I would definitely recommend Priam Vineyards to everyone if you want a spectacular event! I look forward to being able to continue to visit the vineyard and celebrate with their amazing wine!Sent on 12/24/2013

We had a truly wonderful wedding at Priam Vineyards. The venue was charming among the grapevines. The tent was spacious. Riverside Catering provided phenomenal food. Of course, the fact that the weather was perfect helped! Gloria and Gary made us feel very welcome and at home. We have had so many comments about how spectacular the event was. Highly recommended.Sent on 12/31/2013

We are still on a high from our wedding day out at Priam Vineyards a few months ago. We were drawn to the location as a way to do something a little different but still in keeping with the "classy, backyard" feel we wanted for our day. We had a small wedding (93 people) and everyone commented on how amazing and seamless everything was. One of the appeals (there are many) about Priam is the "one stop shop" aspect. We do not live in CT so, having the venue and catering all done in house was extremely appealing. No need to go in search of food and wine options. The provided list of their vendors from Priam was also very helpful from hotel suggestions to coach services - yes, hire coaches for your guests to go from the hotel to Priam - no need to worry about drinking and driving - everyone can take full advantage of the venue! The folks at Priam are wonderful to work with - we could not have done it without them and especially their wedding coordinator - she does flowers too - brides, talk to her - my flowers were gorgeous and well priced! The wine is good too - we highly recommend their rose. We cannot say enough about Priam - as long as the weather is on your side for your day (that is the risk you run but they are well equipped just in case) you will not be disappointed.Sent on 08/15/2013
Priam Vineyards's reply:Thank you so much Betsy. We haven't stopped talking about the event. Loved the poster, it has inspired me to create a gallery of them for all of the brides. And that lobster and brisket!!!! WOW! I want to do a vignette of your wedding on the website if you approve. Take a look at the others when you have a minute. Again, thank you so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to help create this amazing day for you & Patrick.

Amazing! I attended a wedding in September at Priam Vineyards. The landscape was so inspiring. This place is truly a hidden gem. The venue is absolutely stunning and provides a private escape for large events and small private weddings as well. The wedding team was so accommodating every step of the way. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The coordinators took care of every detail and made what is normally a stressful experience a breeze! Having the ceremony and reception in the same place was helpful to out of town guests like me saving on transportation. Also, the surrounding area is filled with activities and points of interest for everyone in the bridal party, Mystic Seaport, Mohegan Sun Casino, and many hiking/outdoor activities to name a few. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone and everyone seeking a magical place to host their special day.Sent on 12/18/2012

Thanks to Priam Vineyards we had our dream wedding this past summer. The grounds and setting were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what we were looking for. Our ceremony took place in front of the vines with views of the Connecticut rolling hills. We took advantage of the all of the gorgeous grounds for our photos and our photographer got the most beautiful shots. We had a larger wedding party and 200 guests all there for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Despite it being a larger wedding it still felt intimate unique and intimate.Sent on 04/24/2017
Priam was one of many CT vineyards we looked at for our big day. We chose Priam mainly because of the beautiful setting, value and what you get for your money, the way they seamlessly work with their caterer, and the wonderful people.
When we first met with Priam we had an amazing wedding coordinator Christine. She was super helpful, responsive, and such a pleasure to work with. She moved on from Priam before our wedding came but it is telling of caliber of staff Priam hires. Gloria was always such a pleasure to work with as well and we always felt (and still feel) like family whenever we make a visit to the vineyard.

My wedding at Priam Vineyards was a dream come true encompassing the most beautiful backdrop of the rolling hills of Connecticut and the vineyard. Our search for that "perfect" setting took us to many beautiful spots but what compelled us to choose Priam was Christine, Gary and Gloria. They were from the first day we met them to the night of our wedding such a pleasure to deal with and so accomodating in every way. We will miss working with them but you should know that this is a very magical place to begin your lives together and that the Priam team will help make your dreams come true!!!Sent on 11/01/2014

Dream wedding day amongst the vines
My now-husband and I had a fabulous wedding at Priam Vineyards this past weekend! The wine was amazing and the rosé paired perfectly with a hot day. The reception tent at the venue dressed up beautifully and the scenery from the vineyard itself was stunning. Gloria was such a joy to talk to at the menu tasting, and Jim was extremely helpful when we ran into some unexpected circumstances with weather. The venue package is very attractive in terms of what they offer (large tent, linens, china, tables, chairs, etc.). We look forward to reminiscing for many years to come and will be back to drink more of their wine. Our guests also had nothing but great things to say about their experience at our wedding!Sent on 07/25/2019
Priam Vineyards's reply:Dearest Amy & Sam, It was truly our pleasure! I am so glad that I had the opportunity to get to know you while we feasted together at Gourmet Galley. I enjoy those tastings for that reason. It makes me so happy and proud to have made your day amazing, in spite of the heat. I look forward to sitting with you over a bottle of wine on your anniversary! Wishing you an abundance of joy in your future together.

I loved our Wedding at Priam Vineyards. Everyone was a joy to work with and the outcome was fabulous. The most important thing to me on the day of our wedding was that people liked the food and that they had fun. Everyone said the food was great, the site was beautiful and it was (super important) "relaxed and fun." Nobody felt rushed or regimented and guests legitimately thought the food was great... and of course, the wine was delicious. Every time I had a meeting with them to plan for the wedding it was easy going.Sent on 01/08/2014
