The Mediterranean oasis in the heart of Livermore wine country.

Surrounded by lush green vineyards and olive trees, this 20,000 sq. ft. palace evokes old-world luxury.

A dramatic entry hall welcomes visitors with handcrafted wooden doors, intricately tiled floors, and a palatial ceiling. The rustic Amber Room, with its golden brown walls and porcelain tiles, provides an intimate, warm atmosphere for couples to marry in front of a spectacular 12ft. fireplace. The Grand Salon is the perfect setting for receptions with its classical limestone arches, glowing chandeliers, and expansive windows. Beautifully carved niches accentuate every room and allow brides to customize with flowers and candles. A verdant walled courtyard with fragrant citrus trees and graceful water features is an ideal setting for cocktails and appetizers under the evening sky or an elegant outdoor ceremony. Featuring a world-class, international menu with savory dishes and sumptuous desserts fit for any occasion. Read less

Casa Real made my wedding day and all of the planning leading up to the big day so easy. I am a very detailed person and I ask a lot of questions. Kara & Sandy (my day of coordinator) were very quick to respond to all of my questions while never seeming to loose patience with me or my mom which can be hard to do :).. I could not have been happier with the originazation and flow on the day of. Sandy was so great about making sure that the timeline of the day flowed as planned while also managing to make sure that the groom and I got a chance to eat and have fun. Aside from the coordinators who are amazing the venue itself it gorgeous and very elegant. Casa Real truly has weddings down, our guests raved about the food and the venue. It is so gorgeous that you really don't need to do too much to decorate it and mostly. An open bar is included in the venue cost which was our parents biggest selling point because they didn't have to worry about a bar tab at the end of the night and your guests don't have to worry about a cash bar. The open bar was of course a big hit with our guests and also made for an awesome party! Casa Real provided such an amazing list of preferred vendors. I used about 90% of the almost vendors from their list and was so overjoyed with all of them. My wedding was better than I ever could have imagined and most of it was all thanks them. I would recommend Casa Real to anyone and would and am so thankful I was able to have the wedding of my dreams there with the help of Sandy and Kara who I can not say enough good things about :)

As soon as we toured Casa Real 15 months before our wedding day, we knew it would be the perfect place for us. What we didn’t know was how incredible the team there is. We began working with Kara, who helped us with securing our date, paying our deposit, and explaining our agreements. Soon after, we began working with Samantha, who helped us decide every detail of our day. I had so many questions throughout the process, and the team always responded promptly and never made me feel bad for sending so many emails! Their professionalism, friendliness, and organization helped reassure us that our day would be seamless.

We chose to have a day of coordinator, and there aren’t enough words to express how helpful Samantha was that day. She kept our day on schedule, and when it wasn’t, she calmly made decisions to make sure everyone was happy! I had so many people in my bridal party and family comment about how great she was. Before I walked down the aisle, she noticed I didn’t have my blusher over my face!! I would have been so sad to have forgotten that detail. If you are planning a wedding in the Bay Area, I would strongly suggest checking out Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. They will NOT disappoint! I just wish we could do it again!!

PS - The French Fry Bar was a huge hit :)

There is a reason why you have to book this venue so far in advance!

I booked my date a year and a half prior because I wanted a weekend in June, which I know is an extremely popular time to have a wedding. We live in the East Bay so the location was very convenient for us. We were blown away by the natural beauty: the grounds are well-maintained and clean, the ceilings are very high, and the architecture is exquisite. However, Casa Real is also a clean slate and you can really change it however you want to fit your style. These are just some of the reasons why we picked Casa Real and would recommend it to anyone:

- your wedding will be the only one happening that day
- very convenient, free, large parking lot
- we wanted both an indoor ceremony and reception (but for brides that want an outdoor ceremony, they can do that too)
- they can hold very large weddings if they need to
- all-in-one packaging (don't have to worry about dining rentals, outside catering, etc)
- BEST STAFF EVER (very professional, friendly, very timely with e-mails, very organized and detail-oriented... they have planning and coordinating weddings down to a science!) They were super accommodating, even with last minute changes. You will not regret hiring them as your day-of-coordinator. Thank you so much to Kara and Sandy!
- great food (we had the New York Steak and the Alaskan Cod and both were delicious; my groom finished his cod entirely! Who says you can't eat well at your wedding?) We also had a vegetable caponata for the vegetarian/vegan course. For appetizers, we had the bacon/chorizo/date, potato/marrow, ahi tuna, and eggplant crostini (vegan) and everyone said they were delicious.
- they can do Sunday weddings and it's cheaper

I had the best time of my life at my wedding, and part of the reason was that there was a great team at Casa Real that made sure that things ran smoothly, and it did!

Casa Real is a very beautiful venue with such amazing staff. Their staff is so professional and their quality of service was great from beginning to end. They were always very responsive and helpful with answering all our questions. We had so many compliments from our family and friends on our wedding day. My husband and I were so pleased with the service, the food and the beauty of the venue truly speaks for itself. We couldn't have asked for a better venue and service on our Wedding day.

I have been waiting to write this review and after 9 months of wedding planning the time has finally come!! Our wedding was on March 30, 2014 and it was absolutely flawless. I knew as soon as I visited Casa that it was the place for me. Be advised that they are in high demand and for damn good reason. Don't wait until 6 months before your desired date because it more than likely won't happen. Before I get to the impeccable service I'll start with the actual venue. The options are endless because it's basically a clean canvas. You can get married in 3 different locations and have the reception in one of two rooms. I chose the amber room for both and they flipped the room during cocktail hour. I don't think this is the norm here, but our wedding was 100 people and too small for the grand ballroom which can easily fit 200+. We could have rented furniture, draping and/or a partition, but let's face it weddings are already expensive. This place is pricey, but worth every single penny. Casa comes with a sweet candle package that really sets the stage for romance. I wanted a darker candlelit setting and they nailed it. The food is REALLY good, so much more than I expected and I'm pretty damn picky. The drinks are also tasty. We designed two signature drinks that were delicious and the wine was actually really good as well. They have a no shot policy and I think it's the smartest thing ever. I myself am a shot taker and had I had the option I would have been much more drunk than was necessary. I was just the right amount of intoxicated. This seems like a silly thing to include in a review, but for a drinker like myself it's helpful info.

The SERVICE -wow, I can't give them enough praise. I am borderline, ok, I am a control freak and the team here put any and all worries I had to ease. I worked with Kara and Z and I never waited more than an hour for a response. That is huge for a person like myself. I expect responsiveness and thorough responses at that when it comes to w

We got married here on Friday, May 31, 2013. We can't say enough about this place. It was gorgeous! Everything was in bloom including the vines, making our pictures turn out amazing. The inside decor is beautiful. We only got two decor upgrades, the candle package and up lighting. Both of those with our amazing florist (Delford West, a preferred vendor of Casa) the room were perfect. We used the standard chairs, which matched our colors of the wedding, and we thought it looked great.

We had Alyssia Lundgren as our day of coordinator, which we highly recommend getting. Not only the day of coordinator, but her especially. She is very sweet and was there for everything, even the things we did not expect.

So since the wedding was on a Friday the food choices are limited, but you can get pretty much anything you want as an upgrade. We went with Chicken Saltimbocca and a New York Steak. All the food was perfect. We still are being told by guests that the steak was the best they have ever had. Not just at a wedding, but ever. The best part, it was not like a typical wedding where the piece of meat is very small. The steaks were so big there were a lot of people that could not even finish it. Very good portions and best of all delicious. Recommend getting the streak upgrade if it is not an option.

If you want your wedding to be perfect go with Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery.
