In addition, other Central Virginia wineries, while not available for weddings, are able to host intimate wedding-related events, such as rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, family gatherings, after-the-wedding day brunches. Look for them following the Winery Wedding venues listed below:

Nearby, the timber-frame Pavilion, with a decorative cement floor made for dancing, is perfect for a celebration of up to 100 guests.
