Beautiful Venue, Friendly Staff, Great WineReviewed on 10/09/2013 Lauren M
We chose Crooked Vine and Stony Ridge Winery for our September 2013 wedding. Courtney and the CV staff were so helpful and friendly from the time we signed our contract to the day of the wedding. We had great communication throughout the entire planning process and they were always available to answer our questions quickly and thoroughly. On the day of the wedding we experienced some unexpected rain. Courtney and her staff rushed to ensure our ceremony site was covered and moved our entire reception inside their beautiful barrel room. Even though it was our "plan b", it was more beautiful than I could have dreamed. Definitely check out Crooked Vine if you are looking for a wedding venue. You will not be disappointed.

Every contact and meeting with Courtney was wonderful. She kept me calm and focused. The entire wedding went sooo smoothly. I don't believe in perfect, but my wedding was pretty close!

The Crooked Vine was awesome from setup to tear down. They had everything under control including us. We received many complements from our guests regarding the staff. They were polite, gracious and respectful.
From the venue to the staff at the crooked vine I couldn't have asked for better! The barrel room is more romantic than ever! The staff was beyond helpful and made all of our wedding dreams come true!
great venue!Reviewed on 6/21/2011 Rachel M
Beautiful grounds, rained on wedding day so had to come up with backup plan to move indoors. Barrel room is great, and venue was so nice to put up the perfect tent for ceremony. Everything worked out great. Staff is friendly and coordinators are nice. Not too sure on price, with bev. package and site fee could be high.
