The Early Mountain Vineyards Collection
Rustic countryside ambiance meets refined winery sophistication at this charmed venue set on more than 300 acres. Spend your day among whimsical wine country vines and a grandiose event hall, taking in the postcard perfect Blue Ridge Mountain landscape.
Warm and welcoming, Early Mountain imparts an amiable family feel and sets the stage for the perfect wine country wedding. The vibrant and verdant property embodies a balanced energy that casually flows from indoor to outdoor spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows, brick accents and a gorgeous fireplace adorn the classic understated event hall that opens out onto the great lawn and landscaped terrace. A vaulted tasting room eases guests with world-class wines and comfortable lounge seating. The wine library provides an elegant rehearsal dinner space and a charismatic guest cottage offers secluded prep quarters.
Take comfort in Early Mountain’s inclusive wedding packages, calling on the skilled in-house culinary team, day-of coordination services, venue managers and a long list of furniture and décor.
Arrange your wine country wedding on the gorgeously manicured great lawn and spill into cocktail hour on the terrace. Make the grandiose event hall your own with elegant flourishes among vaulted ceilings and dramatic fireplaces. Host an elegant rehearsal dinner in the secluded wine library chambers or catch up with loved ones in the vaulted tasting room. Best of all, wake up as newlyweds in the guest cottage nestled in the grapevines.
Rich green rolling hills and forests provide backdrop perfection at this northernmost point on the Monticello Wine Trail. Capture special moments and first looks in front of the 200-year-old barn. Let southern grace and simplicity shine as the wedding party preps in the guest cottage and snap candid laughs and tears in the tasting room and wine library.
