When we went on a tour of Anselmo Vineyards, we were sold. My husband, parents and I were treated to an amazing tour of the grounds (beautiful at any time of the year) and enjoyed a delicious lunch with some of Anselmo's great wine before heading back home to make our decision as to venue. This venue will make your mind up for you! It is truly spectacular, the grounds are well kept and the event coordinator on site is amazing. We had the pleasure of working with Heidi and couldn't have asked for more. Heidi made sure to see that the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony and the reception were set to my specifications, she saw to it that the entire wedding party was comfortable and happy and left no one wanting. She thought of everything! If I didn't have details drawn up in advance, she would phone or email with a couple questions and options on directions in which to go.
We got married in August, and it was a bit hot for the rehearsal, so Heidi and the Anselmo staff (all of which are amazing, we never had one employee treat us with less than exemplary service) went so far as to move all of the seating for the ceremony into the late afternoon shade of the beautiful old oak trees in the middle of the grass area for the following day. Which turned out perfect, heat was not an issue on the day of the wedding. Our wedding party enjoyed the rehearsal dinner in the venues Private Dinning Hall, which I would recommend to any interested in hosting a wedding here. The food is amazing, and one meal at the reception does not do this place justice! All of our guests still comment about how fantastic the food was at the rehearsal and reception dinner.
The grounds are beautiful, the staff is wonderful and the chef is just amazing. He and Heidi will work with you to make your special event truly unique. In our case, my husband is a berry farmer and my family grows rice, so we had our very own berries and rice incorporated into the rehearsal and reception menus.
4 for Value because compared to other places it is more expensive. The grounds are beautiful and the food exceptional, so for a unique wedding experience it is worth the extra.
Anselmo Vineyards is an absolutely gorgeous site for a rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. Our son and his bride were married at Anselmo Vineyards on June 26, 2011.
After months of communication with Debbie Rymer, Office Manager and Wedding Coordinator at Anselmo Vineyards, both in person and through e-mail, the big day finally arrived.
Without reservation, I have to say that Debbie did an absolutely outstanding job listening to the requests of the bride and groom and to my husband and I. Debbie was directly instrumental in implementing all requests and she made sure everything was perfect for the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day itself. There wasn't one, single glitch.
We had the rehearsal dinner at Anselmo Vineyards and the attention to detail was perfection. The meal itself was absolutely outstanding (compliments to the chef!) and the wait staff was extremely friendly and competent; just so accomodating.
The day of the wedding, the chairs were set up as we planned at the gazebo site and the flowers in place. The wedding ceremony was beautiful, with the surroundings of Anselmo Vineyards and the mountains as the perfect, framing background for our special event.
The wedding reception was held within the tent at Anselmo Vineyards and was simply beautiful. The interior of the tent looked gorgeous with the lights, the soft, chiffon draping the ceiling areas, the couches and visiting areas, the flowers. Again, Debbie Rymer coordinated everything perfectly for us from the florist, the cake designer the wedding reception menu. . .we didn't have to worry about a thing because it was perfectly handled. Our guests are still talking about the fabulous meal that was prepared by the wonderful chef at Anselmo, and again, the wait staff was superb.
Mr. and Mrs. Anselmo were beyond gracious to us the evening of the wedding rehearsal and on the wedding day. They made us feel so very welcome on their beautiful property. Everyone associated with Anselmo Vineyards goes above and beyond to make sure every detail and every want and need is taken care of for their clients. We have nothing but positive remarks for all.
Excellence is what we experienced from everyone involved with Anselmo Vineyards which made the wedding day perfect for our son and his bride. They couldn't have been happier and neither could we!!!
We highly recommend Anselmo Vineyards to anyone searching for a spectacular venue for their wedding. We salute Anselmo Vineyards and thank them for giving our family such beautiful and happy memories. Cathleen Woodson
Anselmo is by far the most beautiful venue we found ...The gardens in June are exquisite... we had more than enough food (for 220 guests) and it was very good... the ambiance in the permanent tent was perfect .. the tent was a Godsend... as we had rain and cold weather..... go figure! The bridal suite was a little small for getting ready , but was very warm and cozy. The family area for the groom and other family members was comfortable and ample space. The staff at Anselmo was very accommodating and worked very hard to make sure it was the perfect day that we wanted. Best advice - make sure you have a wedding coordinator to help set up!
Anselmo Vineyards is a beautiful and unique wedding enviroment. It offers a romantic backdrop to any wedding, and makes for fabulous wedding pictures. I highly recommend Anselmo Vineyards!
In the fertile foothills of Northern California's Inwood Valley sits Seven Hills, a 2,250-acre ranch rich with soil and history.
Seven Hills features sprawling pastures, perennial creeks, cascading waterfalls and unparalleled views of Mt. Shasta and the Trinity Range.
Anselmo Vineyards is located at the ranch headquarters, looking out at the surrounding valley and draped with robust grapevines bearing lush and balanced fruit.
Originally founded in 1853, the ranch was acquired by Reverge Anselmo in 2005. Since its founding, we have added malbec, petit verdot and sauvignon blanc to five of the original 10 acres, and expanded the vineyards with five acres of cabernet sauvignon. In 2009, the venerable ranch house became a tasting room and then a restaurant, earning broad acclaim for its outstanding menu and welcoming atmosphere.
Incomparable grace and focus serve the occasion at our classical pavilion in travertine marble, surrounded by lush, green pastures, and located beside a quiet brook that runs beneath the limbs of an oak tree that has watched over our valley for more than 900 years. We have also added a 4,000 sq. ft. event tent with a state of the art buffet station able to serve up to 250 people by our professional, courteous and caring staff.
We offer our own ranch raised beef, lamb, honey, and lavender, luxury overnight accomodations at the winery, ranch and vineyard tours, horseback riding, live music, an on site professional wedding planner, indoor seating for small dinner events such as birthdays, anniversaries and small weddings, and a beautiful picturesque landscape.
We have a helicopter and a 1,300 ft. landing strip along with two beautifully restored London Cabs to get the Bride and Groom to and from the ranch and airport.
