Wine Country Wedding

My Daughter is considering a Wine Country Wedding in September. I know this is a wide topic, but any help would be appreciated. I am thinking of a moderate venue, and possibly about 50 to 60 guests. Anyone know a great place to have a wedding?

My son's wedding was at this location:

and it was beautiful. Everything needed was there and much assistance was provided, including the parking attendants and cottages on the property for changing clothes; spending the night(s) on the property are optional.
I also love Westerbeke Ranch near Sonoma. It has a more rustic quality but the views and atmosphere are incredible. The food is also amazing and you are well taken care of.

My daughter's wedding was at a small family winery in Napa Valley. Sometimes calling a winery directly will give you the best information. Weddings are highly regulated in Napa Valley but a small gathering such as yours should be easy.

I noticed Carneros Inn is on the list. That place is in a beautiful setting and has excellent dining.

Ooh! Christian Brothers Retreat and Conference Center is also on that list. The setting is AMAZING! I have been to a number of events there. You do not have to be Catholic to hold your event there. It would be fabulous for a wedding of 50 - 60 people.
Good luck with planning!

We attended a wedding at Madrona Manor in Healdsberg which was beautiful. Their gardens are stunning, and they did an exceptional job with the food.

We were married at Auberge du Soleil in September several years ago. Everyone told us how romantic the setting was and how great the food tasted. I planned the entire thing via phone and e-mail and they couldn't have been nicer. They even provided a recommended list of bakeries (wedding cake), florists. It's still a very popular spot for weddings.

Thanks for you replies. I will send them all to my daughter. She is very conflicted right now about where is going to be married
