Of course, if you’re attending the International Wine Tourism Conference in 2017 you will have the chance to meet wine producers and experts that could give you some advice about the best locations too.

Under St. Helena Stars

Oozing with class, the Charles Krug Winery in the heart of the Napa Valley offers a fairy-tale setting for your wedding. The charming historic Carriage House has stunning period décor, and combined with the great oak trees and unspoiled lawn area, this really is the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Dine al fresco with your guests, and dance into the night under bright starry skies. Or, take them inside to the Redwood Cellar, which has a rustic but modern feel. This venue will be hard to beat.

English Elegance

English Oak Vineyard is located in the beautiful Dorset countryside and it is composed of around 23 acres of lush green scenery. Celebrate your reception in a beautifully constructed and decorated marquee, where you can watch the sun set on your special day, or dine on a mouth-watering wedding breakfast. Treat your guests to some of the most delicious wedding wines – this winery offers award-winning sparkling wine produced from the very vines that surround your festivities. That calls for a toast!

Make Memories in the Mountains

Wandering through the grassy foothills of Placer County, California, you’ll come across the most majestic of wedding settings at Mt. Vernon Winery. Once you’ve tied the knot, head inside their candlelit wine cave for your wedding dinner. You could even choose one of their famed ports to round off the meal, ensuring your guests will be talking about this wedding for years to come.

An Intimate Affair

The Bulong Estate Winery is situated just an hour from Melbourne, Australia, and will check off everything on your wedding venue requirements list.. and a little more! Take to the outdoor stage for the most beautiful of wedding ceremonies, then dine on delectable canapés and sip sumptuous wines on the decking. Australia sure know how to make a good wine, and wedding venues too for that matter!

Step Back In Time

ChooseChateau Venaya in the south of France as your wedding venue, and you’ll feel like you’ve fallen straight into the history books. Your very own little medieval village with wonderfully dramatic character, what more could you ask for? The wedding planning team here will work with any theme, so the day you’ve always dreamt of is in good hands.

Wine and weddings really do make the perfect combination. Of course, you can always choose a quirky venue without splashing out on the wine too, since many online retailers stock wedding wines perfect for the occasion.

Say yes to a winery wedding for an unforgettable day and photos that have a beautiful backdrop.
