The place was beautiful, the price was great. But you get what you pay for. My mother did a lot of the planning and decorating and I did not have a planning coordinator, so there was a bit of going back on their words of what we could do and couldn't do. They were gracious to serve the champagne for us and to open their wine cellar, which was $50 not a bad deal except I didn't know about it til the final run through. Her attendants helped my mother out wonderfully with decorating and stuff. My husband had ordered us a glass Dom the cellar and the attendant came up to us to charge us, which was kinda a faux pas.

Fontaine Vineyards responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review and we feel that we have to express ourselves.
This wedding took place on October 23 2016.
As the bride mentioned, her Mom worked hard for this wedding and yes if you do not have a coordinator it can be lot of work, but we did help out as much as we could in order to make it smooth and easier and thank you for appreciating it.
As far as alcohol goes, this event was suppose to be non alcohol event from the beginning. It can be costly when you have to hire a bartender to serve alcohol at events. During our final meeting we wanted to help out by offering our services to open and serve the champagne that the Bride broth for champagne toast and keep the wine cellar open for a small fee of $50 so that the guests could purchase their own wine if they wish and this was agreed then.
Yes we did charge the Groom a glass of wine just as all the other guest were charged for their wine consuming as agreed at our final meeting.
We did not do a faux pas (meaning wrong step) by charging the groom, but instead we did a Bon pas (meaning good step) by helping out the best we could. All wine coming out of the wine cellar is sales inventory.
We did not mean to hurt anyone's feeling by charging a glass of wine.
This weeding was Beautiful and it was our pleasure to work with the Bride, Groom, Bride's Mom and all the Guest that attended the wedding. Thank you

What an Amazing experience!!! The amount of energy, attention to detail, and guidance provided by the Fontaine Family and their support staff is beyond measure. In addition to their expertise, the mountain-top Vineyard provides an unrivaled 360 degree scenic experience of Asheville and our beautiful purple mountains that added an undeniably magical, fairy-tale backdrop to Our Big Day! (...it probably goes without saying, but...Breathtaking Photos Galore!) Picturesque. Elegant and Festive. Note on Coin: Unbelievable packages offered! No reason to break the bank on your big day when you can have such an incredible experience for such a great price! They are genuinely committed to providing a memorable and loving experience to all! There are not enough "Thank You's" to express our gratitude to the folks at Fontaine Vineyards and the majestic mountain-top oasis they have nurtured.

My husband and I were looking for a venue with a beautiful mountain view and that was not over the top expensive. We came upon this lovely setting for a GREAT price and since I did not have a planner, it was a big plus that the Golden package included cake and food! Jackie met and discussed what was going to be available and put my concerns to rest. Her husband, who is a master French baker, made an incredibly delicious cake with fresh strawberries and decorated like the picture I had sent. The sit down dinner reception was right beside the outside venue and was beautiful in the evening! Their staff looked after everything through the meal and cake cutting while we had a magical, perfect wedding that we wont forget. You cannot beat the beauty nor the price! Thank-you, Jackie!

I have not yet had my wedding here, it is scheduled for this summer. However, from the minute I walked onto the property I just knew it was the place for my mountain destination wedding. It is gorgeous, and the pictures online don't do it justice.
Jackie was so professional and so accommodating! She wants to provide you with great value for your money and is so budget friendly in terms of not wanting to "nickel and dime" you, You get so much out of what you are paying for!
I cannot say enough great things about her, I read all the reviews before making my decision and I cannot wait to have the wedding here.
She is also so prompt in answering questions and giving suggestions:)

Fontaine Vineyards is absolutely breathtaking, by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my life. I wanted an intimate wedding where the venue's beauty spoke for itself. Fontaine fit the bill for that and exceeded all of my other expectations. The venue itself is obviously amazing, but so is the food! In my opinion, most wedding food is just not that good, but it is at Fontaine. We mainly did the Parisian menu with beef and salmon and our guests loved it. We also loved working with everyone at Fontaine. Jackie is a smart planner and savvy businesswoman who truly cared about saving us money where she could and giving us the best overall experience possible. The people she hired were kind and helpful and all of the vendors she recommended (DJ, bartender, florist) were incredible. If you want a beautiful, fun and affordable wedding, book Fontaine!

Beautiful scenic and secluded location. It feels special to have an event here because it's tucked away and not the typical large venue, making it feel more unique and personal. They also have a wedding official in the family so that helps with planning! So helpful and sweet!

My husband and I had a small wedding at the courthouse in 2010 with plans to have an offical wedding a few years later when our son was old enough to remeber and participate. Well the time came to start looking for venues, we searched high and low and then we found the vineyard. As soon as we set eyes on the property we knew it was exactly what we had been searching for.
The view breath taking and Jackie (the vineyard owner) beyond amazing.
Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect, and Jackie and her staff were so helpful with everything, I honestly don't know what we would have done without them. They listened to everything we had to say and made sure everything was how we wanted it to make our day amazing. I highly reccomend Fontaine Vineyards for anyonee wanting a romantic, outdoor wedding with excellent service, staff, and food. Every one of our guests absoloutley loved the food and not to mention the delicious cake. I will be forever grateful for all Jackie and her staff did for us.

We had the most fantastic wedding! All of our guests complimented the beautiful property and the food (which was amazing).

We also appreciated the help in coordinating. The assistant was so accommodating and kind in making sure that my bridesmaids and myself were comfortable and had all that we needed. The day could not have been more perfect.

We found Fontaine here on WeddingWire and ended up booking with them about a year in advance. We knew right away it was the perfect place. We really liked that they already have a tent, tables, and chairs at the venue. We received many compliments on how beautiful the vineyards are. We also used them for our food and wedding cake which were delicious. However, the rehearsal and day-of were a bit stressful due to staff members and some inflexibility. All in all, we are happy that we chose Fontaine and would recommend to other brides.
