Soda Rock Winery
Founded more than 150 years ago, Soda Rock is one of the oldest winery wedding venues in Sonoma County.

This family-owned venue hosts weddings year-round for up to 250 people and has several picturesque event spaces, including a barn, hillside courtyard, fountain area, tasting room, and ballroom. If you don’t live nearby (or even if you do), you can eliminate travel time and leave more room for relaxation by staying onsite in one of the venue’s suites or at a nearby inn for a discounted rate.

Standard rental fees also include wedding coordination, getting-ready suites, lighting, tables, chairs, heaters, and a VIP wine tasting. B.R. Cohn is located in Glen Ellen, about an hour west of Napa Valley. The 90-acre property can accommodate up to 250 guests.
