Pink and White Romantic Outdoor Ceremony at Viansa Sonoma, One of the Premier Winery Wedding Venues | PartySlate

With its beautiful panoramic views, exquisite grapevines, and sublime sunsets, California is the premier location to have the winery wedding of your dreams. Whether you’re looking to have something out of a fairytale, to transport your guests to the Provençal French countryside, or to add a California flair to a traditional wedding, this comprehensive list of breathtaking winery wedding venues has you covered.

PartySlate sat down with some of the top event planners in California to get their expertise on this stunning part of the world. Tara Ybarra of Ybarra Events, notes, “So many couples from around the world seek the perfect location to tie the knot. Look no further than Wine Country California!”

It’s no secret that California produces some of the world’s finest wines, thanks to its natural irrigation coupled with its Mediterranean climate. So, if you’re looking to pair your wedding with award-winning wines, keep scrolling to discover the unique venues of Northern and Southern California. 

PRO TIP: “Keep in mind that vineyards are seasonal. In the winter, grapevines are pretty bare, as they are dormant. Once harvest has passed, all the grapes will be gone. Pay close attention to how you want those grapevines to look and choose a date when Mother Nature will work in your favor.”Kate Whelan of Kate Whelan Events

People Also Ask…

When should I get married in Wine Country California?

Tara Ybarra of Ybarra Events notes, “Winery wedding venues are all stunning year round! Northern California has beautiful weather, no matter if you are getting married in February or September! Yes, it does rain more in the winter months, but the rain is often minimal and drizzles at night, leaving things fresh and dewy for the winter weddings in the day time. You definitely should still think about your rain plan, but I, more often than not, have rain plans that I never have to use.

“In about mid-February, the mustard flowers start to pop up in-between the sleeping grapevines. As I drive from one side of a county to another, I can look out my window and admire a sea of yellow. In April-May, the flowers are all starting to bloom. Not only are there stunning planted gardens, but the wild flowers! California poppies are endless! The end of May is when the roses really start to emerge. June is one of my favorite months for the abundance of roses. Once you roll into June-July, all of the grass turns golden and the hills glow in the sunset.

“August-October is harvest time! The vines are lush with grapes and music fills the air (whether it is all in my head, or there are festivals taking place). November and December, the leaves turn and the romance of our mild and cozy winter sets in. December and January are months that probably the least number of weddings are booked, but if you are willing to risk the rain, the canopy of clouds can offer the perfect lighting for wedding photos. It never gets too cold as well!”
