California Napa Valley – Winery Weddings

A Napa winery wedding! What could be more perfect than a celebration in Mother Nature’s perfect thumb print. The valley’s more than 300 wineries  add charm to the famed topography – wineries of unique architecture, lush gardens and stunning vineyard settings. Winery Wedding Guide searched for you to find that due to strict usage regulations only three of the wineries are permitted to host weddings, the three “grandfathered” in due to their pre-regulatory status.

V. Sattui Winery


In the heart of the Napa Valley, V. Sattui, founded in 1885, occupies a classic building reminiscent of California’s early wineries.  The setting is one of manicured gardens and giant oak trees.  Steps lead to a Courtyard perfect for ceremonies and receptions.  Or choose the flower-edged Lawn, or the castle-like Cellar.  Picturesque areas invite the capturing of images and memories to last a lifetime.

Hans Fahden Winery


Cradled in the mountains above the Napa Valley,  Hans Fahden is a charming and intimate setting for your wedding day.  A Great Room and wisteria-covered Tea House overlook Monet-styled gardens and ponds. A candlelit dinner in the rustic wine cave is a romantic ending to a fabulous day.
