The Knight's Gambit

Charlottesville, VA
Verified Venue

A Family Vineyard Oasis

Three generations of the Summer family have been born and raised on this Charlottesville farm, adding to the venue's deep familial feel and welcoming energy. The family-run solar-powered estate takes great pride in Virginia wine culture and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. These natural bounties and simple, rural setting welcome couples to celebrate their love on the graceful grounds, tailoring events to their specific vision.

Customize The Grove's magical outdoor hideaway and relish a day cloaked in nature. Design an open-air ceremony on the lush grounds surrounded by tall oak trees, endless hills and natural vineyard rows. Move into the tasting room for hors d'oeuvres and estate wines and flow out onto the covered deck for cocktail hour before transitioning into your perfectly positioned event tent on the adjacent lawn for dinner, dancing and panoramic sunset views of the vineyard and mountains. The outdoor deck provides a lovely dance floor and the breathtaking landscape makes for stunning wedding photography.
