About Elliston VineyardsWhen gold rush pioneer Henry Ellis carved out an estate for himself in 1890, he picked a prime setting...a sheltered canyon tucked between two tree-covered ridges. Here he set up house in a three-story mansion constructed of thick sandstone from nearby Niles Canyon, and went about enjoying life in the country. Today his lovely homestead, now surrounded by vineyards, has become a prime setting for hosting weddings, receptions and private parties.
Garden-style ceremonies are held outdoors alongside the historic mansion, in a garden brimming with native flora and including an expansive lawn and arbor. Stage your photos here and you'll have some striking options for a backdrop - the century-old stone house, vibrant displays of azaleas and camellias and sprawling vineyards. But if you'd like to search for more photographic possibilities, go right ahead - there are plenty of photo opportunities at Elliston.

A short walkway takes you from the garden to the newly remodeled Terrace Room, a secluded 2,000 square-foot banquet room set into the hillside. Its vaulted ceiling and glass walls add to the feeling of spaciousness, while the surrounding deck gives guests a chance to dine al fresco at umbrella-shaded tables. A Victorian gazebo next to the deck is large enough for a bridal table or a quartet of musicians to serenade partygoers. The entire site is sheltered by oak, eucalyptus and olive trees, creating an ideal venue for you and your guests to celebrate.
Whether you're a bride planning your wedding or a wine aficionado, Elliston Vineyards is a destination worth seeking. Centrally located, with access from several East Bay freeways, you're close to civilization but you'd never know it - the quite country atmosphere will give you the delicious feeling of being a million miles away!
