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 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.

If you haven't looked into Veritas for your wedding venue yet, I would highly suggest you do so! Our entire experience with the staff was wonderful! We mostly worked with Jill during our planning process, and Hattie and Grace were amazing resources the day of our wedding...we couldn't have done it without all three of them. The staff the night of the wedding was so professional, and the food was amazing. We got nothing but compliments on our choice of venue, and many of our guests were happily surprised that their food was delicious...not always a given with some wedding caterers! The venue itself is beautiful...the views, the Tasting Room and Patio, and the Event Hall, all of which helped create an amazing ambiance for our wedding. The Bridal Suite is beautiful and relaxing, an amazing place for the Bride and Bridesmaids to get ready. We'll be back to visit again and again in the future...we can't get enough!

Amazing. We were so thrilled with our wedding at Veritas. The food was amazing, the wine was delicious, the staff are incredible and Jill, our coordinator, was a life-saver. The venue is gorgeous, rain or shine. Our guests commented repeatedly that they had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the food and the beauty of the venue. We could not have wished for a more beautiful wedding and on the day of, Jill is so on top of things, we had zero stress. We had a perfect wedding day and we would 100% recommend Veritas as a wedding and reception venue.

Jill and the Veritas events staff made the entire wedding planning process seamless and executed all our ideas on the day of our wedding effortlessly. Jill, especially, was incredibly easy to communicate with. The venue is breathtaking, the food was delicious (many of our guests said that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding), and overall - our wedding was a dream come true! My husband and I couldn't be more happy with our choice to get married at Veritas.

Our wedding at Veritas was an absolute dream! From the planning process (which was long for us, about 16 months) with all of the help and support of the amazing Jill along the way, to the day of, it was absolutely flawless. The place runs like a well-oiled machine and makes it possible for even the most stressed-out bride (see: me) to be completely at ease on her wedding day. Spending the morning in the gorgeous bridal suite with my girls and watching the day unfold was incredible. Our guests can't stop gushing about the wonderful staff at Veritas, the incredibly delicious food (some have said the best they've ever had at a wedding, and I concur), and the incredible backdrop for the ceremony outside and the reception inside. The pricetag may be on the higher side for venues in the area, but it is worth every penny to know that you will be in the very best of hands on your big day. Not a single thing went wrong. I can't say thank you enough to the staff at Veritas for making all of our dreams come true!
