Weddings at Local Wineries

Rock of Ages Winery

We have worked with some remarkable venues, and are noticing that barn weddings are all the rage right now.
But we’re also seeing a lot of ads about events at North Carolina wineries. Have you considered weddings at local wineries? Have you been to any? Would you consider having yours there?

Wine in North Carolina?

Yes, prior to prohibition, North Carolina was the leading wine-producing region in the nation.
NC boasts 100 wineries, some urban like Chatham Hill Winery in Cary and some rural, along one of the wine trails, like Rock of Ages Winery, in Hurdle Mills NC, north of Durham, part of the Haw River Valley Wine American Viticultural Area [AVA].

Local Wineries for Wedding Venues

Picturesque vineyards are a breathtaking backdrop to your event and the relaxed vibe gives the feeling of rural but not rustic. The ambiance can still be upscale and classy. Vineyards as venues are also romantic.

Thematic colors to consider might be green and purple for a Spring wedding, or burgundy for the fall.

Favors would be easy to select from custom label bottles to hand painted wine glasses, charms to wine stoppers.

Ready Made Bars, Wine on Premises

Another benefit of wineries is that they already have magnificent bars built into the venue, not one of those rolling bars you see in a hotel ballroom. Private tasting rooms make the perfect rehearsal dinner location and outdoor ceremonies are surrounded by beauty.

Lastly, they already have wine!
