Whether you are joining us for your site visit, an overnight stay, or booking Trump Winery for your wedding, Albemarle Estate is the perfect venue for your luxury accommodations, rehearsal dinners, and intimate ceremonies.



TRUMP GRAND HALL

The Trump Grand Hall sits atop the highest point of our 1,300-acre estate with the most beautiful and exclusive views of Trump Winery and Charlottesville, VA. With a breathtaking landscape of rolling hills, vines, and lakes, your guests will be mesmerized by the unparalleled panorama.

The courtyard, with its signature fountain, welcomes guests to our East Terrace that overlooks the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains. Four intimate spaces in the East Wing center around the Reserve Room. This unique rustic space is surrounded by expansive windows with endless views, and sets the stage for cocktails, dancing, ceremonies and celebrations of all kinds. With spaces that can be customized for any occasion, our 30,000 square foot venue is the premiere location for any event.

The West Wing holds three grand ballrooms featuring lofted ceilings, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, sconces all fashioned on dimmers, an integrated sound system, and marble restrooms.

There truly are limitless options for your event and hosting your wedding at the Trump Grand Hall will be an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.



PAVILION

Adjacent to the vineyard, the Pavilion exemplifies the Virginia countryside and its beautiful landscape. Once inside, however, it features a formal ballroom with expansive ceilings, 360 degree transom windows, and a custom built mahogany and granite bar.

Complete with beautiful crystal chandeliers and sconces all on dimmers, a 16’x16’ portable dance floor, integrated sound system, prep kitchen, and marble restrooms, the Pavilion has everything you need for an exemplary event.

A series of window-paned doors lead to a spacious slate terrace with sweeping views of the vineyard, natural lake, and lush countryside with mature trees—the perfect backdrop should you choose to have your ceremony on site



BARN

The Barn is the epitome of Virginia rustic elegance. The Quarter Hall is reminiscent of a regal, traditional horse stable with hardwood floors and exposed beams. Hardwood floors continue through the Club Room which also features tall ceilings, brass chandeliers and expansive windows.

French doors to a spacious slate terrace with sweeping views of the vineyard, natural lake, and lush countryside with mature trees—the perfect backdrop should you choose to have your ceremony on site.

The Barn is furnished with two conference rooms, as well as a spacious bridal suite awash in creams features a comfortable sitting area, full length triple faced wall mirror, private marble restroom, vanity, and sound system.

Complete with beautiful lighting all on dimmers, integrated sound system, catering kitchen, and marble restrooms, the Barn is the perfect space for an intimate wedding.



CHAPEL

Created by world-renowned designer David Easton in the 1980s, the Chapel at Trump Winery is nestled among our 195 acres of vines, tucked into a lush grove of trees. The Chapel features checkerboard gray and white marble floors, leaded glass windows, and a hand-painted mural ceiling featuring “ The Story of Virginia” by artist Graham Rust, internationally renowned for his murals and ceiling paintings.

The design of the chapel is based on the eighteenth century English concept of the “Gothick”: A rococo, playful revival of the medieval Gothic. The best known of all “Gothick” revival is Stanberry Hill in England.

The interior detail of the pews, altar, altar rail, lectern and chairs were all copied from Shobdon Chapel, an English “Gothick chapel still in use as an Estate Chapel in Wales.

The long aisle is flanked by ornate wooden pews and surrounded by floor to ceiling windows with beautiful views. The loft, overlooking the pews and altar, houses an 1805 Longman and Herron pipe organ, and is the perfect place for a harpist, string quartet, or pianist to accompany a ceremony. Read less

We live in Hampton Roads, and as my fiancé and I drove to Charlottesville to tour Trump's event spaces, he wondered if anyone would make the drive to get to our wedding. But after we pulled in to the drive and saw the Barn and Pavilion across the lake, he suddenly was all for it! So beautiful. We loved the ability to use all three of their spaces together--the Barn, the Pavilion and the Chapel. We got the best of all worlds..."classy" rustic for the barn, fancy for the Pavilion, and a truly breathtaking religious ceremony in the chapel. When we first entered the chapel, we were both spell-bound. So, so beautiful, the lighting is incredible, and I LOVED the white and grey tones in there. We were just blown away with all of the options. We had the gorgeous hallway, beautiful bathrooms, large bridal suite, the comfortable club room, and gorgeous patio overlooking the vineyard and the lake/willow tree with the Barn; and in the Pavilion we had gorgeous crystal chandeliers and sconces, a fabulous dance floor, beautiful bathrooms, a magnificent, huge bar, windows everywhere for gorgeous views of the vineyard and the lake, and another beautiful patio with great seating that overlooked the vines and the willow tree/lake. We worked mostly with Patrick, who at every contact was professional, helpful and always kind. He had great suggestions and is truly experienced in helping you imagine your perfect wedding day. On our wedding day, he was very helpful and caring, and took care of us and our vendors always. Our wedding was truly a perfect, magical, spectacular day. Everything went without a hitch, and our guests were blown away with the views, the facilities, the staff and the Trump wine. Many of our guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. We just so loved and appreciated getting all that we wanted--rustic, formal, and a gorgeous, gorgeous ceremony in that chapel. Thank you so much for a perfect, memorable day.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Barn and Pavilion at Trump. This place was a gem! We stopped by to look at it after thinking we had maybe found a venue, but wanted to see it just because. We instantly knew we would be getting married at Trump. From the moment we stepped foot in the office we felt welcome, and were assisted in a very professional and friendly manner. Trump Winery and Patrick (the event coordinator) were amazing to work with! Very easy going, very responsive and very organized. They were accommodating every time we brought family by to see the venue and were very responsive and organized for the walk-through with our vendors. We also got a couple of free wine tastings so were able to take our parents to one and some of our bridal party to one.

The condition of the venue the day of, the set up, everything, was perfect. The venue was clean and ready to go. You get the venue from 12pm until 11pm, 11 hours!!! We could not find another venue that let us in that early and leave that late. They even let us leave some cars and items there for pick up the next morning, which was very convenient and made our night less stressful.

They do require you buy a minimum of their wine, and use one of nine caterers listed in their contract. Outside of those requirements, they place was ours and we were able to do just about anything we wanted (within reason of course).

Our guests said the venue was one of the most beautiful they had ever been at for a wedding. We are still getting compliments about how nice everything at Trump was! And the photography potential and options on the property are extensive! The barn, pavilion, lake, vineyards, manor house, chapel all provide great places for AMAZING pictures!

Lastly, we felt Trump was the best value for our money. We opted for a Friday wedding to save some cash, and they were very reasonable with the price for the venue.

Have your wedding at Trump. You will NOT regret it at all!

Patrick was so responsive throughout the entire wedding planning process up through the wedding. It was a pleasure to work with him and our wedding at Trump on October 18th was even better than we could have ever imagined. We have our highlights video and some professional photos and we are still in awe of the gorgeous natural beauty of the property as well as the Barn and Pavilion. We also had several wedding guests say that the Barn and Pavilion and most especially the property made it the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to. On the day of our wedding, we worked with Glenn and we feel like he went above and beyond for me and for us on the day of the wedding. Everything ran so smoothly and we have him to thank for that. He was great at his job and several of my family members and bridesmaids commented on how helpful he was and what a pleasure he was to work with. We thank them both for making our wedding the perfect day for us!

My fiance and I cannot possibly thank Trump Winery or their wedding coordinator Patrick Butler enough for giving us a perfect day in spite of a 1,000-year storm hitting the area! We were so upset when we realized we were going to have rain for our rehearsal dinner and wedding day, but Patrick and his team at Trump went above and beyond to be flexible with us and delivered incredible customer service. For every component of our wedding compromised by the rain, Patrick had a solution and accommodated us far beyond what we had ever imagined. The venue itself is truly exceptional, and all of our guests raved about the beauty of the location (even in the rain!). There were so many spaces to choose from for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The bridal suite made my bridesmaids and me feel incredibly special while getting ready, and the groomsmen had a luxurious area to call their own!

We chose Trump's Grand Hall because the wine is fantastic, they have an awesome rain plan, and the location is exceptional, but we will never forget the truly thoughtful, perfectly executed customer service delivered by Patrick and his team. They made us feel genuinely special, not just like any other bride and groom, and they helped us create a perfect day to begin our lives together, even though the weather was anything but! Simply amazing.

We booked the Grand Hall at Trump Winery sight unseen based on the photographs we saw online. When we finally viewed the venue in person we were stunned at how truly gorgeous the venue was! It was the perfect place to host a timeless and elegant wedding and so much care has been invested to creating a venue that is truly a show piece. The views are spectacular and the three ballrooms are beautiful and allow the couple to choose the perfect intimate reception venue. Patrick and his team were great to work with and they helped everything run extremely smoothly throughout the day! We truly had no worries with them in control and our guests thoroughly enjoyed taking in the beauty of Central Virginia at the most gorgeous venue in the area!

In addition to the Grand Hall we also utilized the Chapel on site which is dreamy! Some of my favorite pictures of the entire wedding are from in the Chapel because it was absolutely gorgeous!

I highly recommend Trump Winery! Their gorgeous pictures don't do it justice - this venue is absolutely worth seeing in person!

I highly recommend Trump Winery! Their gorgeous pictures don't do it justice - this venue is absolutely worth seeing in person! Read less

We had the most beautiful wedding day at Trump Winery. We had our ceremony in the Chapel and our reception in the Barn and Pavilion. The event manager, Patrick, is wonderful! He was professional and always responsive to our questions and requests. I can't say enough good things about this venue.

Trump Winery is an absolute dream! It was the first venue that my husband and I visited and we fell in love immediately. Patrick is an incredible partner to have on your team when planning a wedding and he is there every step of the way to guide, provide advice, work with vendors, and even offer encouragement through the stressful times of planning that are more personal than professional issues. We felt like we were in capable and caring hands throughout the process, and seeing Patrick there as I was about to walk down the aisle with a big smile on his face was something I'll always remember. Trump was remarkably easy to work with, accommodating and flexible when plans changed, and above all - GORGEOUS! So many of our guests remarked that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, on the most beautiful grounds. And the wine is delicious! We've had guests call the winery and have cases sent to their homes because they enjoyed it so much. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the experience and recommend Trump Winery without reservation. They are at the top of their industry in Charlottesville and beyond. Love, love, love!

Beautiful setting up in the mountains of Virginia! The staff was always very helpful and responsive, answering every silly question I threw their way. Bridal suite had ever thing I needed, the pavilion was just the right six for my guest. Held 125 people comfortably with lots of room to dance and mingle. I highly recommend Trump Winery for weddings!

I'll begin with the day we arrived at Trump to take a tour. My fiancé and I had visited several plantations around central Virginia, looking for the perfect venue. We arrived at Trump and were greeted by Patrick, the event manager. He popped a bottle of Blanc de Blanc and the rest was history. I'm Catholic and knew I would have to be married in a traditional church. While we were perusing the grounds, Patrick encouraged us to take a look at the Trump chapel. "No, I can't. I'll fall in love, then be heart broken that we can't get married there." He then shared a story of another bride, also Catholic, who had a local Priest approve marrying the couple there. We raced to the top of the hill and as I suspected, I was over the moon for this adorable, quaint chapel. Driving home that night, my fiancé and I looked at each other and I said, "I'm fine canceling the rest of our venue appointments. I think we found our wedding spot." He 100% agreed. For the next year leading up to our wedding day, Patrick was very responsive, accommodating and genuinely excited for our nuptials. He also recommended a wedding planner to help me the day-of, Cinda from White Birch Events. The day was spectacular and a big part of that is due to the leadership of Patrick and the jaw-dropping back drop of Trump winery. I loved having 3 different buildings at our discretion -- the chapel, the Barn for cocktail hour, and the Pavilion for our dinner reception. Our guests did not need to drive around town, but conveniently stayed in one location. We even received a discount for having it in the "off season" (March). We felt like royalty from day 1. Of course, the Trump wine is delicious and we'll be back many, many times to visit the tasting room. Cheers!

We had our wedding ceremony in the Barn and our reception in the Pavilion in March 2015. It was still winter and the landscape was not yet green and it rained most of the day... and our wedding at Trump Winery was absolutely STUNNING. Our guests keep telling us how beautiful everything was. We had minimal decorations because the venues & landscape are so gorgeous as is. They keep the whole property in immaculate shape 365 days a year.

I am a former event manager myself and have a super type-A personality and the second I met Patrick Butler, Trump's event manager, I knew we had to have our wedding here. I have worked with a lot of event professionals in my career and have been to nearly every venue in the Charlottesville area. Patrick is as professional as they come, incredibly detail-oriented, has great suggestions/advice and is an overall perfect 10! I did not have a wedding planner so I worked directly with Patrick and Sarah with questions, walk-throughs, paperwork, etc and they made it a total breeze.

We loved that they have the flexibility of using any of their preferred vendors. It kept our options from being too overwhelming, allowed us to stay within our budget (especially for catering!), and gave us the confidence we were getting top-notch, pre-vetted vendors.

We could have gotten married at the Cadet Chapel at West Point, my husband's alma mater and our current duty station, which has incredible historical significance and is very grand and beautiful, but we chose Trump Winery instead and it was perfect beyond our wildest dreams.
