Considering a Wine Vineyard Wedding?

Are there wedding bells in your future?  If there are, you may be pulling your hair out trying to find the perfect venue for your special day.  It’s a big decision and one of those make or break details that can either leave you with the perfect, storybook wedding you’ve always dreamed of having or, worst case, the wrong venue can leave your special day feeling incomplete or just ‘off.’

If you’ve looked at and ultimately rejected a number of possibilities, have you considered a wine vineyard wedding?  If the idea intrigues you, may we present Blue Valley for your consideration?

Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of us before.  As one of just a handful of family owned and operated wineries in the state of Virginia, we’re one of the region’s best kept secrets.  Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we’ve lovingly built our winery over the past two decades, beginning when we purchased a portion of a larger estate that once belonged to none other than John Marshall, who served as the fourth Chief Justice on the US Supreme Court.

That fact gives our little patch of paradise more than just spectacular views and a fairytale-like setting, but it also means that the area itself has a rich and colorful history, so if you or your intended are history buffs, that fact will be very much to your liking.

The perfect wine vineyard wedding though, needs more than just a picturesque setting, which is why we’ve worked hard to create a number of interesting and varied venue spaces.  Here, you’ll find a little something for everyone.  

If you’re planning a rustic, intimate gathering, for example, our tiny Cave room might be perfect for you.  It’s only large enough to accommodate about 40 guests and setting foot into the space will transport you to another age.  If you like the rustic look and feel but need more space, then our Barrel Room is probably what you’re looking for.

At the other end of the spectrum, if you’re looking for something modern and elegant and have a much larger wedding planned, then our massive Celebrations room is one you’ll definitely want to take a closer look at.  It’s a vast, open space capable of accommodating 200+ guests and if you have a larger wedding than that planned, we recommend also booking the Loft, which overlooks the Celebrations room and can accommodate an additional 120 individuals.

If your tastes run to the more traditional or if you’ve got a medium-sized wedding planned and the Celebrations room would simply be more space than you need, then our Heritage and Traditions rooms are both well worth a look.

The bottom line is, whatever your needs, tastes and preferences are, we’ve got a venue space for you.  Having said that, you can’t really plan a wine vineyard wedding by reading about your options online. If you want to really know if a given venue is perfect for what you have in mind, there’s only one thing to be done.  You’ve got to gather a few friends and come see each of the options for yourself.

If it’s been a while since you enjoyed a wine tasting, that’s a perfect way to get a feel for everything Blue Valley has to offer, and if you’re a fan of music, be sure to check our event calendar prior to scheduling your trip to spend the day with us, as we host a wide range of musical acts on a regular basis.

Not only will this give you an opportunity to see each of the venue spaces we have on offer, but you’ll also get to enjoy some of our award winning vintages and try our wholesome and delicious food.

Here are just a couple of the vintages you can sample:

2015 Estate Cabernet Franc

Awards:

  • Silver Medal – Wine Enthusiast
  • Silver Medal – Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
  • Silver Medal – New York Wine & Spirits Competition
  • Bronze Medal – American Wine Competition
  • Bronze Medal – INDY International Wine Competition

A fruity wine with a hint of spice, this medium-bodied wine contains notes of cedar, spice, dark cherry and bright red fruit.

2015 Celebration Red Blend

Awards:

  • Gold Medal – American Wine Society
  • Silver Medal – New York Wine & Spirits Competition
  • Silver Medal – INDY International Wine Competition

Our 2015 Celebration Red is a blend of 60.1% Merlot, 35% Cab Franc, and 4.9% Petit Verdot.  It is a very bright ruby red with crisp acidity. It’s medium bodied with a tannin structure, featuring flavors of plumb, violet and both red and black berries.

This, of course, is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and who knows?  You may find the perfect wine to use for the toast of the new bride and groom!
