Early Mountain was the only venue we visited - I fell in love with it when I saw it online and seeing it in person sealed the deal. It was perfect for us. We wanted to get married near the mountains, but within a reasonable distance to Northern VA where we live. The vineyard itself is stunning. Since we got married in April, we needed a venue that had a great indoor option in case of rain - the Event Hall at Early Mountain is exactly that. The combination of the medieval chandeliers, candlelight, and roaring fires (at any time of year) create such an amazing ambiance. We rented out the Tasting Room, which was great to have for the cocktail hour as well as a space for guests to sit and chat during the reception away from the music. The bridal cottage is also incredible - every last detail is perfectly done. It was such a lovely and relaxing space to get ready in with my bridesmaids on the day and my husband and I loved being able to go back to it that night. They even did a clean of the place, so you couldn't tell that 7 women had spent the day there! The guys got dressed in the lounge, which we later used as the kids' room. We put on a movie and had some games for them - they loved it as a break from the dancing!

The staff was a pleasure to work throughout the whole process. They were professional, approachable, and so helpful with all of my questions. We had a great experience working with Maggie and Nicolette. We saw Delores a couple of times too and she was wonderful as well, so it seems like you can't go wrong!

I really don't know what else to say - everything was perfect. The day was like a fairytale, full of warmth and love. We received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue was we cannot agree more :-) We're members of the wine club now (if you join before the wedding, you get %15 off your wedding wine!) and we plan on taking frequent trips back to enjoy the wines and views.

I can honestly say it was love at first sight when my fiancé and I visited Early Mountain VIneyard (EMV)! It was the first venue we looked at after getting engaged and, while we toured many other potential options in the Charlottesville, VA area, nothing came close to EMV. We were immediately blown away during our initial visit, beginning with the gorgeous tasting room when you walk in, followed by the breathtaking wedding event spaces. We wanted to get married in March and weather can be unpredictable, so our venue needed to have space to host the ceremony and reception indoors and the Event Hall at EMV was perfect for both. It actually snowed the Thursday before our wedding, and it didn't matter at all! There was ample space to host our 115 guests (majority of which traveled from South Florida) in a cozy, beautiful atmosphere that everyone absolutely LOVED! Some of our engaged friends actually told us they had “venue envy” after seeing EMV for the first time! And, access to the Bridal Cottage and Lounge/Library made our day that much better as the entire bridal party got to hang out and relax at the venue before the festivities began.

Aside from the quality and charm of the venue itself, the EMV staff was INCREDIBLE - we chose EMV more than a year in advance and Maggie (our Event Coordinator) was wonderful and super responsive the entire time. We also worked with Nicolette, who was also awesome, so no matter whom you work with at Early Mountain, you will be in good hands! EMV was the perfect setting for our perfect day and we could not have been happier with our choice. We loved it, our guests loved it, and our vendors loved it too! We are now members of the wine club and are planning to stay in the Bridal Cottage for our one-year anniversary. Needless to say, we are huge fans of EMV and could not have imagined getting married anywhere else!

I fell in love with EMV from the moment I pulled into the drive at this gorgeous venue. I had my winter wedding here and had the most wonderful experience! The staff (Maggie is the best!) is so helpful, professional and sweet. The wine is great, the grounds and spaces are so beautiful and unique and are the definition of a "wow factor". I stayed at the EMV cottage both the day before and night of my wedding and it made my experience so relaxing and special- my bridesmaids and I had so much fun getting ready there- it really is the perfect place to prep for a wedding and a romantic getaway to spend your first night married. Everyone at my wedding raved that EMV was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen and I couldnt agree more- I cannot wait to go back again!

My husband and I had a great experience with Early Mountain Vineyards. We did not have a wedding planner and they were such a help with organizing our event. Because of inclement weather, we had to move the ceremony indoors, but it looked lovely and no one could tell it was a last minute change. We worked primarily with Nicolette and she is so organized, calming and informative!

EM is simply beautiful. All the guests enjoyed the view. Nicolette, Maggie & co were very helpful and responsive. We don't have any complaints. We'll definitely be back at EM just to escape from the city. Oh the bridal cottage is wonderful, fully furnished and convenient for a bride and her train.

There's so many great things to say about Early Mountain Vineyard! Our wedding day was like a fairy tale, it had the most beautiful view and atmosphere. Everything from the Great Lawn, Patio, Event Hall, Lounge and Bridal Cottage was absolutely gorgeous. The people there are amazing to work with. They were all super friendly and very accommodating which made our wedding planning experience memorable. We recommend Early Mountain Vineyard to anyone in search of a venue! If we had to do it over again, Early Mountain Vineyard would still be our number one choice.

Delores (as she was mainly the person we worked with) was wonderful throughout the whole entire process. She was quick to respond to questions and helpful with her answers. Picking this venue and working with the people at EMV was one of the easiest decisions throughout the entire process.

Anyone looking to get married at a vineyard in the Charlottesville area should SERIOUSLY consider Early Mountain Vineyards as the perfect setting for their wedding weekend. While it’s not as centrally located as some other options, it provides a more unique, picturesque setting that you will fall in love with immediately - it is worth the couple miles of driving, and there are countless bed and breakfasts in the vicinity for your guests to make a complete weekend out of your wedding. If the beautiful setting were not enough to convince you, the wedding staff (in particular Nicolette) is extremely helpful and responsive with everything from recommendations, logistics, ideas, and anything else you might have questions about. If we could give six stars on service, quality, and value, we would - the staff, setting, and everything “extra” that you get is that amazing and takes additional work off your plate. Early Mountain Vineyards is worth every penny.

Our recommendation: Go to Early Mountain Vineyards as your first stop, sit down, do a wine tasting, and cancel all the rest of your appointments - nothing else will come close. If you’re getting married in the Charlottesville area, you’re not going to find a more beautiful setting, more helpful staff, or get as many additional time, hassle, and cost saving things (like patio furniture, tables, indoor and outdoor chairs and cushions, and let’s not forget the beautiful, cozy guest cottage for the night of the wedding) than at Early Mountain Vineyards.

A hundred and one thank you's for providing such a wonderful and gorgeous venue for our wedding and for your absolute professionalism in supporting us throughout the weekend. The staff at Early Mountain made things so easy for us as far as bringing materials in the day before the wedding and storing our alcohol through the next morning, and also with the tastings and various venue visits over the last year. Most of all, you were extremely pleasant to work with, which made all the difference for our experience. I remember thinking how there is something about the staff at EMV–relaxed, elegant, sophisticated but also sweet and gracious. Thanks Nicolette and Maggie for helping us with logistics throughout the last year, and thank you Delores and Maggie for keeping me (the bride) company in the wings before I was allowed to go out into the reception room and ride on the tandem bicycle into the ceremony :) You helped calm my nerves and were so sweet!!

It goes without saying that the venue is breathtakingly gorgeous, so calming and the blue skies are immense – it’s impossible not to feel instantly relaxed when you arrive on the grounds of the vineyards. In fact, that was the first thing I noticed on my first visit, the amazing hush when I stepped out of my car. Because of the views, mountains and skies, it’s impossible NOT to take a gorgeous photo. Looking back, picking our venue was one of the easiest decisions for us during our planning, and we never once looked back. The fact that the contract included the ceremony/reception chairs/tables was also very convenient, and don’t get me started on the Bridal Cottage :) When I brought my bridesmaids and mom there, it was perfect for us to sit around being girly for a day, feeling relaxed before the ceremony and taking lovely photos with our photographer.

Thanks again and we most certainly will expect to visit EMV as customers for years down the road, so we hope to see you again soon.
