My now-husband and I had a fabulous wedding at Priam Vineyards this past weekend! The wine was amazing and the rosé paired perfectly with a hot day. The reception tent at the venue dressed up beautifully and the scenery from the vineyard itself was stunning. Gloria was such a joy to talk to at the menu tasting, and Jim was extremely helpful when we ran into some unexpected circumstances with weather. The venue package is very attractive in terms of what they offer (large tent, linens, china, tables, chairs, etc.). We look forward to reminiscing for many years to come and will be back to drink more of their wine. Our guests also had nothing but great things to say about their experience at our wedding!
Amazing wine and amazing atmosphere. The bartender makes the experience even better. Tasting comes with a glass and the option for add ons. If you are touring a couple of wineries and are holding out to purchase bottles, here is the place. The patio is beautiful and the place uses solar panels, so pro green!!!
