Napa Wedding Venues FAQ

Napa Wedding Venues

If you’re a wine aficionado, Napa may be your ultimate destination for your dream wedding. From picturesque valleys to sweeping views of rolling hills, it’s can be quintessential. Wedding venues in Napa take advantage of these beautiful elements and rustic charm, provided wedding couples and their guests with a remarkable experience. Did you know that only five wineries in Napa can legally host weddings? Learn more here. 

So, as mentioned above, it probably comes as no surprise that all five wedding venues in Napa are actually wineries. These weddings usually take place outside or in barrel rooms, or even a wine cave.

How much is a wedding in Napa Valley?

According to WeddingWire, Napa wedding venues can cost around $10,000, but usually don’t include a number of amenities and also charge wine corkage fees and other hidden fees after the fact. There are all sorts of unwanted surprises that can come after the fact such as required vendors (you don’t get to choose yours), hiring extra laborers to work after the winery closed (crunch time to get ready for your wedding), trying to force you into their wine club and more annoyances.

How much is a wedding at Calistoga Ranch?

Among Napa wedding venues, Calistoga Ranch is one of the most expensive, costing wedding couples at least $50,000.

Which is better Sonoma or Napa?

Napa is certainly more expensive and has the “branding” appeal, but Sonoma is more spread out, less expensive, and usually less crowded. Sonoma has a more laid-back style than Napa wedding venues.
