The staff at Brotherhood Winery will work with you to bring your vision to life. If your dream is an intimate celebration with a spirit of whimsical panache or a grand celebration, Brotherhood has the flexibility to offer a number of venues on our property for staging your special day. Choose our small, historical chapel or our outdoor gazebo set in our varietal vineyard for your ceremony. Host cocktails on our magnificent outdoor patio and move your celebration dinner inside our grand salon that is adjacent to the patio.

Grand Monarque Hall, or the Grand Salon as it has often been called, is an early 19th century stone building with towering ceilings, hand crafted wooden floors, exposed wooden beams and ten foot round antique wrought iron chandeliers that all come together in a historical setting that exemplifies old world charm and elegance. A complete renovation in 2011 restored Grand Monarque Hall to its former grandeur while providing new and modern amenities for guests. Artisanal craftsmanship and attention to detail has brought this grand space into the 21st century while maintaining its historical importance.

The possibilities are many. The results are magical.

For further information on hosting your special event at Brotherhood Winery and information regarding our creative partners and caterers, please contact us at 845-496-3661 or submit an email inquiry to contact@brotherhoodwinery.com. or bhw.donny@gmail.com. Read less

Our decision to have our wedding at Brotherhood Winery was not only the most important but best decision we made for our wedding. My now husband and I visited the winery on a trip a year before we were engaged, took the winery tour, and decided then and there that one day we would have our wedding at Brotherhood. Our guests were blown away by the beauty, history, and fabulous wine at this venue! Not only was this a great venue with a gorgeous setting, but working with Donny Nap could not have gone smoother. Donny was quick to respond to any questions we had through the process, attended our walkthrough with vendors to give key guidance for day of set-up, and oversaw the wedding day-of. Donny was extremely professional and courteous to my husband and I in every interaction and ensured that we had the wedding of our dreams. We could not recommend Donny and Brotherhood any higher.

Donny Nap was incredibly helpful and was always available to talk to. He made recommendations and worked with us which made everything so much easier. The venue is beautiful and people still talk about it. I loved that you weren't confined to a banquet hall. People had freedom to walk around the beautiful grounds or sit outside near the fountain. I can't thank them enough.

This is a beautiful place for a wedding, Ours was perfect and guests could not stop talking about the stonework, the wine, the beautiful grounds and the very spacious patio. They were so easy to work with and gave excellent advise and recommendations. If I had to do it all over again, I would not change a thing. It was truly the best night of our lives and we always be grateful to Donny for his help and attention. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who want to have a magical and stress free night.

Brotherhood winery was the perfect place for our wedding. The hall is beyond beautiful and fit our vision perfectly. Donny was fantastic to work with. He was professional, helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. He any time I had a question he was very responsive and got me answers right away. Donny even helped us find the perfect caterer for our wedding. Everyone raved about how beautiful the hall was and even though it rained the whole day no one noticed. Brotherhood was the perfect setting for our wedding, I'm so happy we choose them.

I fell in love with this venue because of how gorgeous it was and perfect for what we were looking for. I contacted them and from that point on dealt with Donny the event coordinator for Brotherhood. He was very professional and responded to my questions ( and I had many) very promptly and with much patience. He was even there at the wedding making sure everything was going well. I had such an amazing wedding day and this venue and everything that came with it played a huge part in that!

I fell in love with Brotherhood years ago, while wine tasting. I knew we get married there, and we weren't even engaged yet!
It is impossible not to fall in love with the charm of the rustic stone building.
When we did get engaged, we were living in North Carolina. I called Donny, who is the coordinator , and he was a life saver! He was professional, helpful, and just plain nice. He gave me suggestions for caterers, music, everything. I had a million questions weekly, and thankfully he answered them all!( with the patience of a saint mind you )
He was accomodating to the fact that everything needed to be done online, and was always available for my trips to NY... once to show my bridesmaids, and another to show my now husband ( he had never seen the Grand Monarque Hall where we had our reception )
He was also there to over see the vendors the day and night of the wedding.
There was not 1 person who did not come up to me and tell me how gorgeous the place was and how they had no idea that the room was even back there.
An absolute hidden treasure!

After planning a destination wedding and being double booked, we had given hope and decided to hold off on planning a wedding ... until I fell upon Brotherhood Winery. This venue gave us hope of having our dream rustic, romantic yet elegant wedding we hoped for. I went to see the venue immediately and booked it without my fiance ever seeing it, but we just knew it would be the perfect venue for us ... we were 100% right! We had our ceremony outside on the lawn area, our cocktail hour on the patio and reception in doors. The venue itself was perfectly beautiful the day of... our guests raved about its enchanting qualities. Donny, the venue/event coordinator, was great to work with. He was extremely responsive and professional... answering all questions, emails, requests etc. He was very accommodating and even facilitated several meetings we had on site with different vendors. He did a great job coordinating with our other vendors and was there the day of to make sure everything was running smoothly ... And we don't have a single complaint. Brotherhood Winery was totally worth it! It surpassed all of our expectations and made our wedding unique and absolutely beautiful.

Donnie and his staff were nothing but helpful throughout the planning process. He was quick to answer any questions we had leading up to the wedding day and even allowed us to set-up early to help alleviate stress on the day of the wedding. The venue was amazing with guests raving about the uniqueness of the setting all night. Our goal was to have a "different" venue, with unique features and we definitely accomplished that at Brotherhood Winery. I cannot praise Donnie, his staff or the venue itself. The Brotherhood Winery provided everything I could ever want in a wedding venue from the gorgeous ballroom for the reception, to the stone patio for cocktail hour to the amazing settings available on the grounds for pictures. Everything was first class all the way and I would 100% recommend the Brotherhood Winery to anybody looking for the perfect wedding venue.

Our destination wedding at America's oldest winery found us thoroughly basking in the beauty of a ceremony where our daughter was married to a wonderful man surrounded by family and friends with the backdrop of stone, wood, cherry blossoms and sunshine. Donny Nap and his team helped us plan and coordinate a perfect day. Using Holbert's Catering and Flowers by David Anthony our celebration had delicious food and exquisite floral designs. A few days before the wedding Donny set up a tour and wine tasting for guests. Pat did a wonderful job regaling us with the history and the tasting confirmed that not only is the winery a beautiful, historical landmark - it produces delicious wine! We could not give a stronger endorsement for the Brotherhood Winery for a wedding or any other celebration. Special thanks to Donny and his team for their professionalism, dedication, and commitment to making every minute of the ceremony and reception memorable.

My husband and I were married at Brotherhood winery on 12/22/12; and thanks to both Donny who manages all of the events at this venue, Pamela's Traveling Feast (our AMAZING caterer), and Party Time DJ's we literally had the time of our lives!

We were originally a bit nervous to go plan the wedding without an event planner, but truly between Donny and Pamela we didn't need one; they took of everything!! Donny was very easy to access throughout the entirety of the preparation period, he was so accommodating of our wishes, even allowing us to come in after typical hours for our wine testing because of our very busy schedules. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue and the vendors we used as well. almost a month later we are still getting phone calls from our friends and family telling us that our wedding was the best they'd ever attended.

Our pictures are perfect thanks to this stunning venue, the food was delicious thanks to Pamela's, and the music was so good the dance floor was packed all night. We could not have possibly asked for anything more!!

Donny was a great partner in planning & then executing my daughter & her husband's wedding. His recommendations for the caterer, SUSAN HOLBERT of HOLBERTS CATERING & band leader Clifford of THE ENTERTAINMENT all made for one experience that family, guests & even the staff are still talking about.

I wouldn't hestitate to contact Donny for any of your planning needs. You will be in the best of hands.

After immediately falling in love with the character of this place, (like nothing we had come across in our search) we almost immediately decided to have our wedding reception here and worry about logistics after. HA! A true gem! Luckily for us, Donny was a dream to work with and made planning from afar (we live in Alaska) as easy as possible. He was super responsive to several emails (I ask loads of questions)...from little things to locations of outlets to big picture ideas where he chimed in about using/not using champagne for toasts, table layout, etc. He was a big help!
It was unique as well in that the wine is included in your package... and it's delicious too!
For those considering this venue some details to note:
-We had 150 guests, we wanted a plated meal and the Grand Salon doesn't have a working kitchen. It was NO PROBLEM!Our caterer was fabulous, so don't let that stop you, it can be dealt with.
- Despite the historic space, they were still flexible with decor and hanging things, offered suggestions, solutions dealing with it.
-The cellars/grounds were open for us to take photos as requested.
The only negative thing about this venue, in our minds, (and it's out of Brotherhood's control) is the lack of accommodation for that many guests nearby. We essentially had a destination wedding, I'm from upstate about 2 hours away and my husband is from Ireland. So we used Newburgh as a hotel base so our guests had different price ranges to choose from. We were happy with the end result, although everyone was rather scattered. Luckily everyone got to our after party or their hotels safe and sound. And it was easy enough to get to from NYC (where most guests flew into) via a gorgeous train ride or scenic drive.
Overall, we are BEYOND PLEASED to have had our special day and so many fond memories made within this amazing space’s walls.

We used the grand salon for our daughter's wedding. It is absolutely the most beautiful place to have a wedding. The winery was very accommodating and let us use the lawn for the ceremony, the patio for the cocktail hour complete with a rented tent, and of course the grand ballroom. We were allowed to use it the entire day. We happened to be lucky and the venue was not being rented the day before and they allowed us to set up for the event. We were so grateful for that. It is an expensive fee to rent this space, but well worth the money. I highly recommend it!

The winery was very accommodating and let us use the lawn for the ceremony, the patio for the cocktail hour complete with a rented tent, and of course the grand ballroom. We were allowed to use it the entire day. We happened to be lucky and the venue was not being rented the day before and they allowed us to set up for the event. We were so grateful for that. It is an expensive fee to rent this space, but well worth the money. I highly recommend it! Read less

Donny was amazingly helpful! He was there through the whole process and was available the entire reception.

I recently just had my wedding at the Brotherhood Winery and it was FANTASTIC!
What a magnificent space! The catering hall style wedding just doesn't fit my husband's and my personality, and the Grand Monarque Hall on premises certainly fit the bill - a perfect blend of elegance and rustic charm.
We had our ceremony out by the old stone arch, the cocktail hour on the patio, and the reception in the Grand Monarque Hall.
I really wanted my wedding to be memorable and not blend together with all the other "wedding factory"- style affairs. Having it at the Brotherhood Winery definitely distinguishes my wedding from the rest.

I worked with Donny Nap from the winery throughout the process. His style is the "hands-off" approach, which is fine by me, but he is also available for advice or help if needed. All you have to do is call him and he is great about getting back to you.

I would've given the venue 5 stars, but it was not easy to find open dates to book. They book up fast and you will probably need more than a year to get the date you want. In addition, it is a pricey place to rent and I would've thought that being that my date was a Friday wedding, it would've been significantly cheaper than a Saturday. I advise brides that you need to factor the cost of the venue rental into the cost of your food per plate to get an accurate idea of how much each guest will cost you. This will probably be a bit shocking, so don't be surprised if most of your guests don't adequately cover their actual cost with their gifts.

Overall, I am VERY happy that I chose the Brotherhood Winery for my wedding venue. It is such a charming and unique place and I truly loved my wedding. Thank you Brotherhood and thank you Donny!
My wedding turned out to be exactly as I envisioned it, and what more could a bride possibly ask for?!

Donny Helped make our wedding beautiful. The grounds were amazing for photos and Donny was extremely attentive all night. Our wedding guests drank all the wine that was provided with the rental agreement but Donny handled it extremely well and we purchased a few more boxes before our guests even realized what was going on. Donny was great about giving his advice when you asked it and was honest with you on what was really needed. My guests LOVED LOVED LOVED the hall and are still talking about how pretty the room was and it was not a hotel ballroom. I would recommend this venue to anybody for various events surrounding your wedding day

The venue itself is beautiful and I'm glad we chose to get married there however I'm not a fan of the events coordinator there. He's not necessarily the right fit when it comes to booking and coordinating events such a weddings.

Let me start off by saying that I got married at Brotherhood Winery last year and LOVED it. The venue is spectacular, beautiful and my guests really loved the ambiance. However, working with Donny, the only person in charge of events there, made my experience awful! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, get everything in writing. Donny promised us many things and as we got closer to the date of the wedding, he went back on his word and said he never promised us those things, complete LIE. He is completely unfriendly, has no professionalism and is not someone I would want running my events department. Right after our ceremony, we were in the tasting room and Donny walked past and didn't even say congratulations, not a word, how rude?! He doesn't know how to interact with clients and he acted like he was doing us a favor, hello, we're paying you thousands of dollars, you can AT LEAST be polite and considerate.

I would highly suggest that Brotherhood rethinks their event department, the venue is great and I loved every second of our wedding but Donny was a huge stress factor during our planning process.
