It is said that in wine, there is truth. Yet, if the perennial popularity of winery weddings tells us anything, there is also plenty of true love in those bottles of vino. And Virginia, after all, is for lovers.
It’s not hard to imagine why so many couples across the Commonwealth choose to exchange their “I Do’s” among the vines. The pastoral beauty of rolling hills lined with ripening grapes. The rustic elegance of aged wine barrels clustered among autumn leaves. The sun setting over romantic tablescapes complete with perfect pours of petit verdot.
From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia’s 250+ wineries offer engaged couples spectacular settings and historic hospitality. Whether it’s an intimate, family-only affair held in a cozy tasting room or an outdoor gathering of hundreds against the sweeping view of a vineyard, winery weddings make for lifelong memories of matrimonial bliss.
Here we feature photos from just a few Virginia wineries that host nuptials throughout the year. If you and your spouse-to-be are considering a Virginia vineyard wedding, be sure to visit Virginia.org/Wine for a list of wineries to visit and explore.
