We had our April wedding at the barn a 1/2 mile behind the Gainey Tasting Room and it was absolutely amazing! When we were looking for a venue for our April wedding, the barn almost wasn't even brought up because it's usually held for summer weddings, but once we we took a look at it, we were obsessed. The location is where they filmed the Gary Sinese TV Movie "Of Mice & Men" and it truly is stunning. The day of the wedding was a bit chilly, but once we moved to dinner by the heaters and the wind died down, I think everyone warmed up and enjoyed themselves immensely. We held the ceremony under an oak tree, cocktail hour in the barn, the dinner by the cook's shed, and then dancing and dessert in the barn and the outside area. The fire pit was an charming touch and it helped to have pre-built bathrooms. The reason for a 4.6 instead of a 5? You have to bring in everything, and I mean everything. The upfront rental price is a little bit misleading once they add on fees and services. You have to be out by 10 pm. No exceptions. (Not really their fault, though - that's due to a noise ordinance). But other than that - I really don't think my hubby and I could have found a more beautiful spot - it will hold such a dear place in our hearts and we made such amazing memories. It will be fun to go back and visit over the years - we even made a wine bottle "time capsule" with Gainey Wine! The Hollywood History and the magic of this place is definitely worth it - our wedding was a fairy tale!

We had the most amazing wedding at Gainey Vineyard! We got compliments on the food (the bbq was amazing!), the appetizers (everyone loved the sausages), and the overall ambiance. We had guests come from across the country and having everyone meet at a destination as beautiful as Gainey was exactly what we wanted. We had our ceremony on the grass and our reception up on the patio and it was absolutely perfect. Diane and the staff at Gainey was wonderful. It truly was the best day of my life and Gainey was everything I imagined.

We just had our wedding at Gainey Vineyard and it was absolutely AMAZING! I have always loved Gainey but had no idea just how beautiful our wedding was going to be! The setting was absolutely stunning. We had a rustic elegance theme and the vineyard was perfect for that. It was elegant but still casual which is exactly what me and my husband wanted. And the weather for our June wedding was just right. The events coordinator for Gainey is Diane Connor and she is just wonderful to work with! She is friendly, professional and efficient. She is in charge of multiple events at a time and never forgets anything. She is remarkable! We used Gainey as our caterer and the food was delicious! We had tri-tip and chicken and it was done very nicely. It doesn't feel at all like a barbecue dinner because they present it so nicely. Everyone really enjoyed all of the Gainey wines as well. I really can't say enough about having Gainey as our venue. It was so much more beautiful and amazing than I had hoped for. And I had hoped for a lot so that's saying something! :) All of our guests really enjoyed themselves and it really was the best day of my life.... :)
