Our destination wedding was on 8/16/14 and it was wonderful. We selected it after looking at many other venues. We knew this was going to be the place when we reached the parking lot. Then we saw the view from the balcony and visited the tasting room. It was perfect for our party of 54. Pilar was great to work with and Sbragia is very accommodating. They include furniture, a fire pit, and heat lamps that would be quite costly to rent at any other venue. The fire pit was a huge hit at our wedding!
Our only issue was that the amplified music had to stop at 10 pm due to an ordinance. Obviously Sbragia needs to comply. The dancing was still going strong when we had to flip to the overhead music which really changed the dynamic of the reception. With that said, I would still have picked Sbragia. It's just something you should be aware of.

We were drawn by the view from the terrace, but convinced to go with Sbragia by the compatibility and professionalism of the Event Coordinators. First Tracy Bidia for the contract, then Pilar Mustafa for all arrangements and follow-through.

Pilar Mustafa was fantastic to work with: intelligent, responsive, patient, reliable, perceptive in anticipating what we couldn't foresee. This was a Welcome Reception (in lieu of a Rehearsal Dinner) for 165 people. We wanted everyone to be invited to everything, so we had to find a cost-effective way to set a relaxed but elegant tone that wouldn't upstage the wedding itself the next night (elsewhere). Ms. Mustafa worked closely and effectively with us and our awesome chef throughout the planning process. The onsite kitchen and furnishings made it feasible to serve a California-style buffet, and they gave us access in the slower months ahead to test run the ovens.

Sbragia wine and light fare on the terrace overlooking the Dry Creek Valley was our establishing shot for the weekend! Guests ecstatic.

Tracy Bidia also was totally professional, hospitable, smart and considerate. We didn't think she could be replaced but it worked out very well. Glad we got to know and work with them both.

Reduced "value" rating to 4.5 only because we wish there'd been a way to purchase extra cases of wine ahead of time with the understanding that unopened cases could be left on site and credited back to us, but this is probably a regional way of doing business. On the other hand, the extra cases returned to us demonstrated winery's honesty. & they were wonderful about letting us bring in whatever else we needed without surcharge.

Thank you Pilar. Sbragia Family Vineyard made the great wine, but you made it work!

Now off to share some SFV wine with friends on our deck in Berkeley....

We had a fairly large wedding - initially was supposed to be ~100 guest, but ended up with 126 RSVP's. People from all over US and Europe came to attend - everyone was impressed. The scenery at this Winery is probably one of the best in Sonoma, if not the best. We were really lucky with the weather - and the winery at this time of the year is absolutely stunning. Very colorful with all its autumness.

Many guests that are wine connoisseurs were impressed with the wine we were serving with the food - and were also impressed with the venue. The winemaker at Sbragia is apparently really famous.

The winery event planner told us the limit is roughly 130 people, but I believe that you can totally fit another 20 without to much of a hassle. The only drawback I we could see was no hard liqueur license - but people got plenty buzzed from Wine/Beer/Champagne. :)

I truly recommend this venue due to the professionalism and flexibility. They're great and made our special day, a day to remember!

Sbragia was an amazing place to work with. Tracy made us feel welcomed and excited for our partnership for our special day. The day of, everything went amazingly. We were able to do pictures before the wedding, and then relax with our bridal parties with some wine before the ceremony began. Sbragia was great in allowing us to do our wedding in the small vineyard infront of the winery. They blocked off the parking lot early so chairs and decorations could be set up with plenty of time. The reception was beautiful. They were able to supply lights for the dance floor area, and bags set, and much much more. I dont think our day would have been as spectacular without the help of Tracy and Sbragia Family Vineyards.

I would highly recommend Sbragia Family Vineyard for your wedding venue in the Dry Creek Area. The location and views are beautiful. Everyone at Sbragia goes above and beyond to make your day special (especially Tracy) and we felt like we truly made good friends in the process. We have been to many vineyards in the area and no other vineyard can compare to Sbragia.

My son had his rehearsal dinner at Sbragia. First, the view from their terrace is amazing and worth the price of admission. Second, Tracey is amazing. She will do whatever is needed to make your event a success. She is professional, personable, and very competent. Third, i would have any event there again, anytime.
Thanks to Sbragia for making our event a once in a lifetime event!

Sbragia was the perfect place for our wedding. Someone suggested it to us after we had already chooses a different winery & we are so happy we changed to Sbragia. The view is Incredible! Probably the best view of all the wineries we went to. Our families were blown away. The wine was great! The set up is great! They have so much on premises that we really saved on Rentals. (chairs, barrels, heaters) I loved my bridal room & the boys had there own room to get ready in as well. I found that not a lot of other wineries had this option. They have a kitchen so you save money with the catering companies there. The contact person Pilar is also a wedding coordinator so she is really helpful. We ended up hiring her as well & So happy we did! She was amazing. Everything went perfect! We love Sbragia & will be back to visit. Everytime we went up for meeting we planned a picnic on the patio. Great memories.

We absolutely loved working with Tracy and Sbragia Vineyards. Once we visited the site, tasted the wine, saw the view, and met Tracy we were sold. We also appreciated that the venue is not a wedding factory, like many others in the area. Tracy is a true professional and great at what she does. She's got a lot on her plate so it can be a bit tough to reach at times, but once you've got her she'll alleviate all your worries. We would host our wedding here again in a heart beat. All our guests had such a great time we're even thinking about hosting a anniversary party!

Eating out on the deck is stunning and dancing under the string lights and open air is magical. The only thing we would do differently is rent the venue out for 2 extra hours so we could enjoy it a bit longer. 5 hours just isn't enough time one of the most special and fun days of your life.

A huge thank you to Tracy and all Sbragia staff.

My husband and I had a beautiful wedding and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather for our ceremony. Sbragia has an amazing view of Dry Creek Valley and great wine. Our guests have let us know lots of positive comments about both. Their terrace is partly covered so (if it does happen to rain on your wedding day) there is a potential backup plan to fit the tables under the awning for the reception if your wedding is relatively small. The reasons why I didn't rate this venue 5 stars is because even though my husband expressed concern about the potential darkness of the reception area after sundown (their coordinator had said that purchasing the little tealight candles and christmas lights should be enough to light the dinner area), when it came time for our reception, it really was too dark to see. In hindsight, because our wedding was relatively small (8 tables, 64 guests) we should have placed the reception tables under the awning where it was best lit but the coordinator had mentioned because that would decrease the size of the dance floor we may not want to do that. It turned out the dance floor size was almost too big for our party so finding a way to fit the tables under the awning probably would have been a better use of space and lighting. Since I wasn't good at assessing what the best table setup would be, we did not put the tables under the awning based on the coordinator's warning, but I felt if I was able to figure out this design after just our wedding it should have been noticeable for the coordinator as well since the winery has had other weddings in the space. Also, there were some unanticipated charges that we felt should have been included in the facility fee (e.g. heat lamps and wine glasses had to be rented for the reception) and there was a drop in communication with our caterer who had been referred to us from the winery (e.g. the caterer thought that napkins would be rented by the winery who was handling tablecloth rentals and on the day of the wedding it was realized that napkins were not rented so there was an additional charge from the caterer for emergency rental of napkins from another nearby winery). I would definitely recommend Sbragia for a wedding but just make sure to ask about all rental costs and have a plan for lighting the reception table area if you will not be placing the tables under the awning. Also, if you wish to decorate the terrace with any items, have a plan for purchasing decorations, putting them up, and taking them down as the winery does not provide any additional decor or service to put up/take down (though their view can be considered decoration in itself! :) ).
