Wine Country Wedding

Say, “I do” to a ceremony at The Pavilion. Comprised of 16,000 square feet of classic California terraced gardens, with two adjoining gardens—East and West Gardens—the center point of the outdoor event space is a covered Italian gazebo stage area. Separately, the West Garden with a bridal path and wedding arbor is ideal for a grand, elaborate wedding. It will host 570 guests for a wedding ceremony, 700 guests for a reception or 400 for a seated lunch or dinner. The East Garden can be used as an adjunct to the West Garden for larger events—hosting 1,000 guests for a reception—or as the setting for more intimate weddings. It can accommodate 320 for a wedding ceremony, 450 for a reception or 220 for a plated lunch or dinner. Beyond The Pavilion is an additional 10,000 square feet of event space, including conference rooms and the 2,600 square foot Historic Barrel Room. Dating to the 1870s the exposed brick 2,700 square foot interior with a 36-foot high beam and rafter ceiling is ideal for a rehearsal diner or wedding reception.

Honeymoon on the same property at the AAA-Four Diamond Villagio Inn & Spa or The Vintage Inn. Villagio is a Tuscan-style haven with 112 rooms and 26 mini suites separated by their balconies, a magnificent swimming pool with private curtained cabanas, waterfalls, Italian stone walkways, and olive trees—all adjoining their 130-year-old private vineyards—formerly Groezinger Winery. And the complimentary bottle of wine from this vineyard is enjoyed in the privacy of your room in your oversized sunken tub. Or if you prefer French style to Tuscan, romance at the sister property, The Vintage Inn. This French country styled inn offers balconied villas and cottages beyond its white picket fence, lined with lavender, lilies and sweet pea vines. Reserve one of their 80 guestrooms, eight mini-suites, or four private villas. All are impeccably appointed with French antique furnishings and Toile de Jouy fabrics.

Relax in The Vintage Estate’s Spa Villagio, opening in early 2008, and shop at one of the 26 specialty shops and art galleries. Spa Villagio integrates indigenous elements of Napa Valley, influences of the Mediterranean and the latest technology in products and protocols. Male and female spa guests have separate areas in this 13,000 square foot spa with 13 state-of-the art treatment rooms and five spa suites appointed with fireplaces, hydro soaking tubs, steam showers, wet bars and private patios. And the Valley’s leading spa therapists and estheticians perform soothing and customized beauty and wellness treatments.

The honeymoon will never be over if you take a bit of it home with you. Shop in The Vintage Estate’s 26 specialty shops and art galleries for a treasure that symbolizes this special time. Everything from gourmet foods and handmade chocolates to collectibles and home furnishings are found on the property.
