Welcome to Veritas Vineyard & Winery

Nestled on a 250-acre farm at the base of Afton Mountain, with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, lie Veritas Vineyard & Winery. As one of more than 20 boutique wineries on the Monticello Wine Trail, Veritas has, in short time, contributed significantly to fulfilling Thomas Jefferson’s dream of establishing Central Virginia as a distinguished and burgeoning producer of nationally and internationally acclaimed wine.

But there is more to Veritas Vineyard & Winery than meets the eye. Beyond consistently producing a range of complex and elegant wines, Veritas features a variety of inviting indoor and outdoor event spaces and has quickly garnered praise as one of Virginia’s most sought-after venues, hosting events ranging from private tastings to alfresco wedding ceremonies and gala receptions. In 2012, brides voted Veritas as one of The Knot’s “Top 100 Wedding Venues in the country.”

Whether you prefer an intimate sit-down dinner on the mezzanine or an all-out celebration in our Saddleback Ballroom, the accommodating and professional event staff at Veritas stands ready to make your dream event a reality. Each event is carefully crafted from the initial consultation through to the final good-bye, with a level of attention to detail that is unsurpassed. This idyllic setting awaits only your personal touch for a truly unique and memorable event.

Known for elegance and luxury in a relaxed atmosphere, Veritas naturally lends itself to the romance of weddings year-round. From the expansive sun-drenched deck adjacent to the tasting room to the awe-inspiring view from the top meadow, natural beauty abounds.

That beauty is reflected on the inside as well. Style emanates from every corner, from the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace built from locally sourced river rock to the ethereal, gauzy white fabric that adorns the ballroom walls and ceiling, creating a tent-like backdrop for your fairy-tale event.

Veritas gave us our perfect wedding with the least amount of stress possible! The setting is truly one of the most beautiful in Charlottesville, and we loved how everything felt upscale but also comfortable. We cannot thank Courtney and Grace enough for handling all of the littlest details -- our guests raved about the delicious food, the quick service, and the perfect flow of the evening -- and all of the credit is due to Grace for managing our entire night! One of the best perks of Veritas, apart from being able to have the ceremony on-site and catering included, is the multiple options for the ceremony site. We changed our minds from having a lawn to a porch wedding after it rained the day-of, and it gave us such peace-of-mind to know we didn't have to decide our official plan until several hours before the ceremony, AND had several gorgeous options to choose from. A bad-weather plan is essential and could easily become a major stressor in the weeks before the wedding, but this is completely avoided with Veritas! As other reviewers have highlighted, Grace and Courtney are extremely prompt with emails and phone calls, always positive, and very willing to work with you on the smallest details. The tasting was one of our favorite parts of the wedding-planning process and absolutely delicious, and the food tasted just as amazing at the reception. Another great perk of Veritas is that they have worked with many of the local vendors before, so it put very little stress on us to coordinate with the florist, band, cake, make-up artist, etc. since they had all been to Veritas before! All of our guests could not stop raving about how gorgeous the venue is and how much fun they had at our wedding! The only thing I would change would be to go back and be a guest at our wedding -- it was truly that great!

Everything at Veritas was perfect for our January wedding, and we cannot thank the event managers, Courtney and Grace, or the rest of the staff, enough! We had our rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding in the mezzanine, and then our gorgeous winter wedding the next day in the tasting room with the reception following in Saddleback Hall. The whole thing really was a dream come true: From getting married before the fireplace to dancing the night away under disco ball and twinkling lights in the reception hall, everything was exactly like what I had imagined. The service was nothing short of exceptional from the moment we first inquired about having our wedding there. They are very prompt with returning emails/phone calls, the tasting and food provided at the actual wedding was lovely and so delicious, and the actual day was incredible. All of our guests had an amazing time, and could not stop raving about how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was, and how it was the most fun they've had at a wedding. What more could you want? Thanks so much, Courtney and Grace, for everything! You really went above and beyond for us!!

Veritas gave me my dream wedding. It's my favorite winery in the Charlottesville region. I'd been to several of their galas over the years (got engaged at their New Year's Eve party) and was always so impressed with everything (esp the wine and food), so when I started looking for wedding venues I decided that if I was trying to replicate one of their parties, might as well go right to the source! The place is gorgeous and their staff is wonderful. This was a destination wedding for us but they made it so easy to plan with prompt email responses (sometimes within minutes!) and helpful suggestions. They have a list of vendors on their website which was super useful, most of which are very familiar with working at Veritas which also simplifies things. The whole planning process and even the day of the wedding went so smoothly, I couldn't quite understand why everyone makes such a big fuss about planning a wedding. And I cannot rave enough about the food, it was perfection! All our guests were so impressed. I mean, each and every filet mignon was cooked to perfection - no easy feat for that size crowd! And they made the best risotto I've ever eaten. I highly recommend anyone who wants a winery wedding to use Veritas, you truly cannot go wrong.

My husband and I got married at Veritas in August of 2015, and we could not have chosen a better venue. Veritas truly has everything you need, the location, the food and beverages, and coordinators. I do not think I could say enough about Chole and Jill who were my wedding coordinators at Veritas. From the first visit the staff was super helpful. The venue is stunning. The moment my husband and I walked into their ballroom I knew this would be our wedding venue. The food was amazing, the wine was amazing, and the bridal suite was absolutely stunning. I could not have been happier with our choice. Chole and Jill were quick to respond to emails throughout the entire process, and gave great suggestions. When I wanted different colored napkins, they found them.

Veritas was a WONDERFUL place to host a wedding. Jill , one of the event coordinators, was a perfect balance of personally engaging, professional and helpful throughout the entire process. The space was gorgeous on it's own and I loved having the piece of mind that we had a beautiful back up plan when it began raining day of. Could not have asked for a better team or location!

Ohh where do I begin with Veritas?? They are TRULY amazing and are one of the BEST wedding venues with the most incredible staff! We were sold on our first meeting with Jill McKinley (who is literally the reason I chose this venue from the get-go!) as she was so incredibly helpful, attentive, professional, not to mention bubbly and super sweet! We loved that Veritas included everything from the barrels to the chairs, tables, linens, uplighting, etc. You name it, they have it! And if they don't have something, you better believe they'll find a way to make it happen! I also loved that they have their own chef and ohhhhh was the food DELICIOUS!! Seriously....our guests are STILL raving about all the food and how it was presented - the plating was absolutely stunning. Unfortunately it rained on our wedding day, but Jill and the rest of the Veritas crew created an AMAZING in door ceremony for us that you would never believe was our Plan B. We also had so much fun getting ready in Veritas' beautiful bridal suite and were pampered with sparkling wine, sandwiches and other goodies from Jill and the rest of the amazing staff. I could literally go on and on, but to sum it up Veritas is truly a dream wedding venue with gorgeous mountain views, incredible wine, DELICIOUS food, and a gorgeous ballroom that makes for an amazing wedding reception! I wish I could get married all over again!

We had our small wedding/elopement at the Farmhouse at Veritas and it was just perfect for us and our immediate family. The bed and breakfast itself is beautifully appointed and furnished, with gorgeous views of the vineyard and lots of potential ceremony and photo locations. Breakfast in the garden was delicious with fresh croissants and a sweet or savory option. We had a five course dinner prepared by Chef Andy that was amazing. They were great about designing a pescatarian menu and accommodating a guest with food allergies. There are lovely touches for guests throughout, like a happy hour with Veritas wine and fresh baked cookies in the afternoon. Chloe helped me immensely in coordinating with the chef, florist and bakery. She even coordinated a last minute horseback riding tour of the vineyard for my in-laws. She really took care of every detail. Everyone from the owner to the waitstaff to housekeeping was so great to us. Our day was so relaxing and laid back, and yet so elegant because of the excellent service and coordination. I can't wait to return for our anniversary! I would highly recommend the Farmhouse for an intimate wedding or elopement venue. Our weekend was perfect and our guests had nothing but glowing things to say about the Farmhouse.

Having our ceremony and reception at Veritas truly made the day phenomenal. Of course your wedding will be beautiful, special, and memorable no matter where you hold it, but there really is something about this gorgeous vineyard (and even moreso, the incredible staff) that makes the whole experience that much more positive. Every single interaction we had with Jill McKinley or Chloe Hodson was professional, friendly, and surprisingly easy. We planned our wedding from Minneapolis, so there were a number of times we had to rely on email to plan things and make decisions. They were always super responsive and beyond helpful. I cannot say enough how much the people make your wedding planning process. We struck gold with Chloe, Jill, and the entire Veritas staff. It never once felt difficult or confusing working with them. If anything, they tried to take things OFF our plates. It was amazing when we arrived to Veritas the day before our wedding. We literally just handed off everything to them, and they made magic happen. Everything was put together beautifully and ran so, so smoothly on our wedding day. I wanted to do it again the very next day, and the very first thing I would have kept the same (other than, of course, my husband) is that it would have to be at Veritas. Chloe even stood in for us when our officiant didn't show up for our rehearsal. She didn't bat an eye, and took complete charge of the situation. On a final note, I'm biased, but I think their food has got to be as good as it gets!

I can't say enough about Chloe and the staff at Veritas! She made sure every detail was taken care of for our wedding weekend stay at The Farmhouse. The setting was beautiful, food delicious, and staff so accommodating and flexible. It was a perfect weekend that we won't forget. The venue was the best and we can't wait to visit every year. It truly has a special place in our hearts.
