8 of America’s Most Beautiful Destination Wedding Wineries


1 minute Read

Love doesn’t come in a bottle. Luckily, wine does.

For the couple whose favorite pastime is sipping and sampling together, it makes perfect sense to get married at a winery. Not only is the scenery gorgeous, it’s near-impossible to run out of varieties to taste, pairings to create, and bottles to uncork.

These eight wineries across the country embody everything that makes a vineyard an ideal wedding venue: beautiful views, passionate owners, and award-winning blends. And, of course, they’re all locations where the wine flows freely.

Cheers to you.

Buena Vista Winery, California

California’s oldest working winery, this Sonoma landmark dates to 1857 and features 150-year-old stonework and a newly renovated “Champagne” cellar. It can accommodate weddings with up to 200 guests, and is just over two miles from Sonoma, and an hour north of San Francisco.

Arrington Vineyards, Tennessee

Located about a half-hour outside Nashville, this winery embodies the laid-back spirit of Music City. Rent the rustic Grand Barn or charming Stone House for a picturesque event surrounded by vineyards and centuries-old oak trees.

Arrington Vineyards is near Nashville in Tennessee.

Wines of the San Juan, New Mexico

This winery has an especially picturesque location alongside New Mexico’s San Juan River. Owned by a husband-and-wife duo, this winery has laid-back vibes, perfect for a sunny afternoon with a glass of its award-winning Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bedell Cellars, New York

You don’t need to head far out of New York City to find quality, scenic wineries. Since 1980, Bedell Cellars has been one of Long Island’s favorite destinations for weddings, events, and day drinks among the vines.

Ponzi Vineyards, Oregon

It takes more than great wines to make a great winery. This Oregon staple is notable for several reasons (perhaps its panoramic vineyard views most of all), but it may be the onsite bocce ball courts that keep visitors coming back.

Oregon's Ponzi Vineyards has expansive views.

Zephaniah Farm Vineyards, Virginia

Step into a well-preserved memory of the early 19th century at this family farm and winery. From the on-site sheep pen to the old stone house (built circa 1820), everything about Zephaniah feels like a time-tested classic.

Antler Hill Village & Winery — North Carolina

Tradition and elegance are the hallmarks of this photogenic winery. Located on the Biltmore Estate (America’s largest private home, built by George Vanderbilt in 1895), Antler Hill becomes an illuminated wonderland after the sun sets — and after a few glasses of its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon.
