My fiance and I are looking for a venue for our summer 2011 wedding in wine country. We’re looking for suggestions for a venue and would REALLY appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help! Here’s our criteria:
-We’re not attached to a specific area (napa, sonoma and other areas nearby are all good)
-We’d like to have a property that can serve as the location for both an outside ceremony and indoor or outdoor reception (~75 guests)
We’d like a place for our entire wedding party (10 people) either onsite or nearby the venue
Great views, onsite vines, gardens, etc would be an added bonus
Total price tag <$10K
Thanks so much for your help 🙂

I would try other wine areas in Northern California like Lodi, and Amador County. There are lots of wineries at both locations, and good ones too.

Let me know if you are still looking. My Fiance and I are getting married at a winery in Sonoma County in July and we did quite a bit of research that I can share with you.

I agree with Verosara and looking at other winery locations. Unfortunately, a budget of $10,000 doesn’t get you far in the general Napa area—-some venues are almost $10,000 just to rent. The areas listed above are great suggestions and there are even some in the Placerville (one even has a wine cave for a reception). Tucker Farm Center is reasonable, but very rustic looking. Purple Orchid Inn is nice. There are some nice wineries in the Sunol area as well. Good luck!
