Not only is this a beautiful venue for your ceremony and reception but the staff is also unmatched. My husband and I also got engaged here and from that moment to the wedding we were always greeted by name anytime we visited the winery. We originally started working with celebration coordinator, Laurel, who I can't recommend highly enough. Half way through the planning I began working with Abbey, who went above and beyond. She worked so hard on my wedding day and she did an unbeatable job to make sure everything went flawlessly. Jonathan, the banquet captain, is super personable and professional and he will make your reception run without a hitch! I can't recommend Potomac Point Winery highly enough! If you choose them as your venue you will undoubtedly have a beautiful wedding!

Our wedding was perfect; just as I imagined it would be! Most of that is due to the excellent staff and organization of Potomac Point Winery. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, they made sure I was happy and content with each decision I made. They were patient and understanding with all the questions I had as well up until the actual day of my wedding. On our wedding day, I had no worries at all that everything would be taken care of just as we had discussed. The staff made our guests and myself feel totally at ease throughout the day, and I knew everything was definitely under control. Our wedding turned out just as we had planned and was beyond beautiful. Our outside ceremony with the gorgeous scenery at the winery was amazing. I would definitely recommend Potomac Point Winery and their staff to anyone looking for an exceptional vineyard wedding!

Potomac Point Winery was perfect for our wedding. I planned this wedding living 300 miles away and PPW made it so easy! Laurel, our event manager, and Rachael/Jonathan, the catering coordinators, were willing to help in any way. The food by their catering company, Le Grand Cru, was delicious; the pictures and scenery are breath-taking! Well worth the money! If you get married in the off-season like we did (February), PPW offers a discount on facility rentals (as of 2/14/13). You won't be disappointed by choosing PPW!

Potomac Point Winery provided us with the perfect wedding ceremony and reception location. Not only are the facilities absolutely beautiful but the wine and food are delicious. The staff there is extremely responsive and provided excellent service on our wedding day. Both Tanya and Rachael were amazing to work with. They made my husband and I feel like king and queen for a day. They were also great throughout the planning process. They were extremely responsive, professional, courteous and made us feel so relaxed throughout everything. They always went the extra mile for us and I am so grateful we chose to have our wedding there.

Potomac Point was the first and only place I looked for our wedding reception, and I do not regret that decision for an instant. From start to finish the entire staff was helpful. Tanya, the wedding coordinator, assured me she would be available to help at any time and she was. My fiance and I postponed our wedding two months, and they still accommodated us in every single way. Rachael, the coordinator for Le Grand Cru, the bistro on site, was equally as helpful. Our tasting was perfect and so was the food on the day of. The day of the wedding, the weather was perfect. We had family pictures outside, followed by pictures of Matt and I elsewhere throughout the winery. Tanya was present for all of it. She even carried our wine glasses! :) Not only that, but she took the time to bustle my dress, going WAY above and beyond her duties. Appetizers from the cocktail hour were even brought down to us. As the night wore on, it was clear the wedding was PERFECT. From the decorations, to the service, to the timing, and the food, nothing was left unattended. Towards the end of the evening, my bustle fell out of my dress, at this point, Cindy, one of the owners, and an extremely friendly person (!), came and pinned my bustle up. Needless to say, I cannot say enough about Potomac Point. Everything about my evening was absolutely stunning and perfect. Everyone who played a part in the night made it clear that they truly cared. The night was perfect, and it would not have been without everyone at Potomac Point.

Working with Laura at PPW was an awesome experience. She was very responsive in our needs and questions. She was right on board with us, right down to the very last detail. It was exactly what I imagined it would be. She made our wedding day very smooth in every event, from the grape stomping to exiting the reception with sparklers. I wouldn't change anything, it was the first and best decision we made for the wedding. Thank-you Laura! Thank-you Potomac Point Winery.

Potomac Point Winery was the setting for our 15 guest ceremony and reception. It was perfect in every way. The venue itself is rustic elegance at it's best, with dimmed wall sconces and iron chandeliers creating the perfect ambiance to complement the stacked barrels of aging wine. The wedding coordinator and catering coordinator were very responsive and efficient. The food was unique and delicious. And, of course, the wine was excellent. Overall, there isn't one thing that could have been better...a lovely day.

Let me start of by saying we truly had the wedding of our dreams! There is no winery as beautiful as Potomac Point in this area. My bridesmaids and I used the adorable bridal salon to get ready and from the moment we walked into the winery we were treated like gold. Everyone was so accommodating and professional. Our cocktail and reception went off without a hitch. My guests are still raving about how beautiful everything was, how amazing the food & wine was and how much fun they had. There are so many locations in and out of the winery that are perfect for photos, we went everywhere! Tanya, was the coordinator and she was a joy to work with. She made sure everything went according to plan and I can honestly say I didn't think about a single logistical item all day. My husband and I had so much fun and I want to do it all over again!

I LOVE POTOMAC POINT!!! We love the Mediterranean feel that the winery oozes, and not only is the winery beautiful, but the wine is fantastic and the food is to die for. We had both the ceremony and the reception and PPW. However, what we found most impressive was the group of people working there. The staff has weddings down to a science, which alleviates a huge portion of the stress on the wedding day. It was so easy for me and bridal party to kick back and relax on the day. Even when our DJ failed to show up for our wedding (high stress!), Skip and Cindi sprung into crisis management mode. Skip doubled as the announcer for the wedding party and Cindi managed iPod music... and these are the OWNERS! They worked frantically with my caterer to find us another DJ, all the while keeping the stress and insanity of the situation away from festivities. I cannot thank them enough. Potomac Point was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. Thank you!!

I was SOO happy that I decided to have my wedding ceremony and reception here!! It was absolutely GORGEOUS, and all my family and friends agreed! The weather was perfectly sunny, and everything went as planned! All my pictures look so beautiful because this winery is just beautiful itself! Laura was super nice and helpful and really helped me get all the details ironed out. I had the wedding reception outside on the patio, instead of the ballroom (which was also beautiful), but I am SOO glad that I had it on the patio (with the ballroom tables), because when the sun went down....that sunset was absolutely spectacular....and all my guests loved it... They couldn't stop talking about how romantic and beautiful it was!! I really loved it and would recommend it to any bride who wants to feel like a princess!! :) :) :)

This was a beautiful winery! All of my guests were impressed and in awe of how stunning the winery looks. Laura was my point of contact and assisted me in so many ways. She had valuable suggestions and helped me plan my perfect wedding. It was easy to contact her via email and their recommended vendor list was also a helpful starting point. I could not have imagined a better and more perfect day! I would recommend this winery to anyone who wants a to feel like they are the only wedding that matters---when you work with PPW you feel like family to them! It is incredible!!! A bit pricey but well worth every dime I can promise you! Even for smaller weddings they have great options! They can work with any budget. The best part about the winery is there is a rain plan which many outdoor sites do not offer. Photos are easy with and beautiful with such a picturesque environment that PPW has created! LOVED IT!

Potomac Point Winery made my wedding day the day of my dreams. Laura, the coordinator, was a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond to make our wedding process and wedding day calm, easy, and a day to remember. However, the owner of the winery that helped during the day of the wedding, was very rude to myself (the bride), the bridal party, and my vendors. I was very unhappy with her demeanor and did not feel that she was professional. Despite this, I would still undoubtedly recommend Potomac Point Winery as THE place to have your wedding ceremony and reception!

I have to disagree with the previous reviews. My husband and I actually had our wedding there in October of 2008 and were very happy. Laura is fantastic, the place is great. Yes you have to work with them to make sure you get exactly what you want, but where don't you. The new caterer they brought in is 10 times better than the previous and had wonderful menu ideas. We loved every moment of our event and would highly recommend it. The only negative, we thought we would have the entire one side of the venue to ourself and the owner was doing guided tours. I would specify with them if seeing other people bothers you. Check it out, you will love it. There is no other winery like it in the area.

This location is very beautiful and was the best value of all of the venues that we looked at. We had our ceremony and reception here outdoors. The event coordinator, Laura, was excellent! She is completely unflappable, very friendly and extremely easy to work with. She was very patient and friendly with the kids as well. She is very busy and so she's not always easy to get in touch with; HOWEVER, she always gets back to you when you leave a message and is very responsive. She was very well organized and kept us on schedule-- which was not an easy task. The day of the wedding my bridal party had lunch in the conference room by the bridal suite (which is very convenient for getting ready) and the food was very good and service was excellent. I was a little disappointed that we were originally planning to work with the onsite caterer and were later told that they were unable to accommodate our party due to its size. We ended up hiring the preferred caterer "42 Degrees" instead and they were wonderful and very responsive, so it all worked out well in the end. The high points of this venue are definitely Laura and the scenary!

This wedding venue is absolutely gorgeous. The venue is already hooked up with a caterer and all the staff are very helpful. You also pay for a wedding coordinator in your package, which is totally worth it. However, prior to the wedding our coordinators responsiveness through email was not very prompt (minor detail in the big picture though). The coordinator was awesome the day of and made sure things ran smoothly. There food was absolutely delicious. Our picture's came out amazing, we had our wedding outside. However, they do have a back up plan if it rains or is too hot which is nice.

There could not be a more beautiful location in Northern Virginia than Potomac Point Winery.The inside of the building, the basement, the bridal suite as well as the winery grounds are all just picturesque. However, you do pay for what you get -- compared to several other locations, it is on the higher end of the spectrum.

Tanya, the wedding coordinator, is fantastic on the day of your wedding. She definitely knows what she is doing and has everyone where they need to be, including all vendors. We had a few minor incidents but she always did her best to fix what she could. For example: Part of my cake fell apart, but she had the pastry chef put it back together immediately.

There is a required caterer, but all other vendors are up to the bride's choosing. No liquor or kegs are allowed, but you can bring your own bottled beer. Wine is obviously only allowed from the winery.

In spite of those few limitations, it is worth it to have your wedding at such a gorgeous location. Thank you Potomac Point :)

Overall we had a fantastic experience! Yes, it got a little confusing while Laura was our on maternity leave and I could tell that the people who took over for her were not experienced in the events side of the business. Luckily Laura came back the week before the wedding and everything was fine the day of. Yes, the venue is very expensive but for me, it was worth it to have a very nice wedding in a county that doesn't offer many choices when it comes to venues that hold 150+. I had my fairy tale wedding and for that I am happy!!

Potomac Point was the perfect place for our 35 person wedding ceremony and reception. For a small wedding on the cave landing, the view is amazing. You have this beautiful tunnel you walk through, these great big wooden doors and an amazing view of the winery. The day of the wedding was fabulous. Everything went very smoothly, the food tasted great, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The only problem I had was leading up to the wedding. Our wedding coordinator was not very responsive and it took many emails, phone calls, and texts to get a response. However, on the day of the wedding everything did work out, so overall I would highly recommend Potomac Point.

I love this vineyard, it is beautiful, Laura the wedding planner was absolutely fantastic and the best part of our experience with this vineyard. We love the wine, the ceremony grounds and reception room were beautiful. I had a great wedding. I don't want to downplay that, but the frustration that I had to go through for it was a lot.

We got married Nov. 1st, 2008 our rehearsal dinner was on Halloween. I noticed on the vineyard's website a month ahead of time that there was an event planned for the 31st/1st, I called the vineyard to see if it would conflict with our rehearsal dinner and wedding. I was told by the owner that it would not. I specifically said that I was worried that there would be Halloween decorations (bats and spider webs) in the background of our pictures and the owner ensured me that it would not happen. The day of the wedding, the event planner came to tell me that they didn't want to take down the Halloween decorations because it took so long to decorate. So, after being promised, there were bats and spider webs in the background of some of my wedding pictures. Other than that, I felt nickel and dimed, and they weren't receptive of outside caterers after they switched their in-house caterer on us. The day of the wedding, when my brother, who was officiating the wedding, arrived and found the owner to ask where they should go to find the wedding party, they were told to just go have a wine tasting. Only after they mentioned that he was officiating were they shown some kindness and pointed to the ceremony grounds and wedding party.

The facility itself was perfect. I just felt like there was a lot that could be improved on. The venue is lovely, really beautiful, but for the price, I would really expect more customer service.
