 The Old Cellar – accommodates 50 (min 20*) guests

The Old Cellar is a historic building dating back to the late 1700’s. After restoration, it now has a large fireplace and a spacious patio area, though you can still see the exposed walls of the original building. Many wedding ceremonies and memorable dinners have taken place in this intimate structure. Perfect for private wine tastings with platters on a harvest table.

The Lapa Hall – accommodates 120 (min 60*) guests

The Lapa Hall was built along with the current tasting room in the 1990’s. With fully draped walls and ceilings along with elegant chandeliers, it provides a classy yet down-to-earth atmosphere with a view into the barrel room if you pull back the draping. There is a slide-away wall leading onto the Lapa porch where guests can enjoy the fresh air while overlooking the farm.

The Mountain View Venue - accommodates 300 (min 120*) guests

The Mountain View has a Ballroom feel with full draping, a stunning chandelier in the middle, and space for up to 300 guests! The windows open up to overlook the gardens and mountain backdrop to create an even larger feeling to the room. We have hosted Gala dinners, weddings, and even group yoga in this gorgeous venue.

 ADD ON A HORSE CARRIAGE EXPERIENCE!

To really impress your guests with an unforgettable experience, we offer horse-drawn carriage rides, drawn by our beautiful black Friesian horses. We have 4 horses and 2 carriages available. This can create your Cinderella Story for a wedding, or a fun surprise to your high-tea event, or a VIP treatment for select guests at your function!
