Winery Wedding Guide - Temecula

There is something about a vineyard that elicits feelings of magic and romance. Perhaps it has something to do with vineyards providing beauty, elegance and a sense of joy - naturally. As a result, couples are increasingly choosing meticulous rows of grapes as the backdrop for their nuptials, and wineries are regularly turning their barrel rooms into reception halls. In Temecula, the large number of wineries hosting weddings provides couples a wide range of styles to choose from, including Tuscan, French, Contemporary, or Traditional. Whether you are planning a large, grand wedding or a small, more intimate affair, you can find a winery in Temecula to suit your needs. The following are American Winery Guide's favorite wineries for hosting a wedding among Temecula's barrels and vines.

Callaway Winery

Callaway offers several different wedding, reception, and cocktail hour venues and provides a sophisticated, contemporary feel. If you want to hold your ceremony outside, the Western Lawn is a great choice. Stunning views, an onsite restaurant, and a dedicated event coordinator make Callaway a wonderful venue for hosting your nuptials.

Europa Village

Europa Village's “old world” charm is evident in both its design and its weddings. Venues at Europa Village include the Italian cave, which can be used for either the ceremony or the reception; the Spanish veranda, which holds up to 250 guests; and the charming Wedding Lawn. A bridal suite is available for those big day preparations. Europa Village also has onsite accommodations and catering services.

Gershon Bachus Vintners

Tucked away off of De Portola Road, Gershon Bachus offers a relatively secluded venue for your wedding. The Tuscan Villa sits atop a hill providing impressive views of the mountains and valley. A bridal suite with Juliette balcony adds to the romance. The outdoor venue offers a Roman style dome, and a lovely indoor venue is available in case of rain. A sit down dinner is the sole dining option.

Inn at Churon Winery

Designed in a French style, the Churon Winery Chateau offers both indoor and outdoor wedding venues. The outdoor gazebo is nicely landscaped with fountains creating a romantic ambiance. The winery's onsite restaurant provides catering. At the end of the evening, guests can saunter back to their rooms at the Inn at Churon, where each room has its own fireplace and balcony or terrace.

Keyways Winery

Keyways offers a variety of event venues accommodating 10 to 200 guests. The Fireside and Cork rooms' traditional, warm styling provides intimate settings for smaller weddings . The Rose Terrace, the Vineyard Pavilion, and the Garden Gazebo offer lovely outdoor options.

Leonesse Winery

Leonesse offers one of the most stunning backdrops for your outdoor ceremony. Ceremonies take place on the lawn area with its stunning views of the picturesque vineyards and rolling hills. The reception can be held in the barrel room, which can hold up to 200 people. Leonesse is geared towards larger weddings and provides all food and bar amenities. There is a bridal suite and a groom suite, replete with a dart board, foosball table and a refrigerator full of beer.

Longshadow Ranch Winery

One of Temecula Wine Country's more unique venues, Longshadow Ranch combines the charm of a vineyard with the old west feel of a working horse ranch. Belgian Draft horses roam their pen outside and can gallantly transport the bride to the ceremony in an old west style horse and carriage. The barn style tasting room adds to the authenticity of the country atmosphere.

Mount Palomar Winery

Meticulously designed with old world Italian charm, Mount Palomar hosts both small and large (up to 300 people) weddings. For an intimate setting, try the Cava di Vino. To leave your guests breathless, take advantage of Mount Palomar’s elevation and host your outdoor wedding at the La Bella Vista location.

Oak Mountain Winery

Part of the appeal of getting married in a vineyard is the natural scenery. However, sometimes, even in Southern California, the weather doesn't cooperate. Oak Mountain has a solution. The winery's covered Event Pavilion has ceiling fans on the warmer days and drop down enclosures and a wood burning fireplace for those cooler or rainy days. The Event Pavilion's hillside location offers gorgeous views and is surrounded by vines, gardens, and fountains.

Wilson Creek Winery

With numerous venue options and meticulous landscaping, Wilson Creek Winery stands out as one of the most versatile wineries for weddings. The Champagne Ballroom provides a traditional wedding venue that can hold up to 300 people. The Merlot Mesa is located among the vines for those interested in an authentic vineyard wedding. The Barrel Room provides an intimate indoor option, and the Garden View Terrace overlooks the winery. The entire Wilson Creek Winery can be rented out to hold up 1500 people.
