I couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding! Our wedding was on 9/17/16 in the Pinnacle and I was a very stressed out bride being that everything was planned in 4 months and there was even a time when I wanted to change my date. Loretta is the best; any questions... Read More I had she was quick to answer and kept me on track with planning. She worked with us and even when we hadn't yet picked a venue; her follow through is what stole us! The winery is so beautiful all around and a great spot because it's right off the main road. The staff was great as well, helpful and kind each time we stopped by. The chef was also amazing! The tasting was top of the line that we didn't make any changes for the reception. Cassie the coordinator was a great addition and I am so happy she was there before and throughout the event. During crunch time Cassie made everything so easy! The day was magical and went so fast I want to do it all over again! The venue, food and wine just made everything so much more perfect! I recommend Falkner to anyone and everyone!! I can wait to be married for 5 years just so I can renew our vows here! It's been a month and our friends and family still talk about how amazing our wedding was! I can't thank Loretta, Cassie and Falkner enough, everything was truly perfect!

Falkner Winery was everything I could want in a wedding venue. From the moment we arrived at the site, we knew instantly that we wanted our wedding to take place there. Almost everything was included in the price; the food, drinks, tables, linens, lighting, and staff. The garden... Read More was the perfect outdoor venue and made us feel like we were in a fairytale. Loretta was a gem of person and made sure all of our questions were answered and that we had everything in place before the big day. The food was fantastic! My guests are still raving about how it was some of the best wedding food they have ever had. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a garden wedding. Falkner Winery knows what they are doing, and they made sure our wedding was everything we wanted.


Beautiful Venue and Excellent Service

We loved everything about our wedding venue! Falkner Winery was the perfect place; not only are the views from atop the hill gorgeous but also the property itself is just amazing! The food was delicious and our guests were really pleased with the flow of the day/night! Thanks... Read More to our wonderful coordinator, Krissy, it was a stress free event for us! Also, having Cocktail hour in the Barrel Room and then moving upstairs to the restaurant area for the reception was a nice treat for our guests. We get compliments for our choice in venue. We found a gem in Falkner; beautiful venue, excellent service, friendly staff and within our budget! We dealt directly with Loretta, one of the owners, and we never had any run-around and it definitely made the entire process stress-free and smooth. My husband picked the most beautiful place and it was like a dream come true to have our wedding at Falkner.

It is with great pleasure to give my highest of recommendations to Falkner Winery. Krissy and her team were INCREDIBLE to work with! She is so calm, creative, organized, and friendly and made our wedding day perfect! My fiancé originally found Falkner and I immediately fell in... Read More love! We chose to get married on the Pinnacle side which is just beautiful, it’s like 3 venues in 1 location! The enchanted walkway/ceremony site are phenomenal, the Barrel Room for the cocktail hour is nice and cool for a hot wedding day, then upstairs to the restaurant for the reception with a view of the vines and wine country is breathtaking. I’ve been to plenty of weddings where the food wasn’t good but the food here was amazing! I had lots of guests tell me how much they enjoyed the food. Krissy and her team made sure everything went perfectly and even packed up our decorations so we could enjoy our time dancing with friends and family. I couldn’t thank them enough for making our wedding day one that I will never forget! If you are reading this review… go book your date because you aren’t going to find another venue this well priced, a friendlier staff, and Krissy! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making our dream day perfect and beautiful!!!!! PS… Make sure you stop by the tasting room to see Caroline! She helped us every time we came to visit and even came to our wedding! So lucky to call her a friend!!

There are just no words. After a month of looking for a special venue the second we walked into Falkner Winery we just knew! Last night we got married on the restaurant side of the winery and had the reception at the garden side. From beginning to end of planning this, Krissy... Read More has been a dream.

What a wonderful experience! We are expats living in Shanghai, engaged in January and were trying to get married in July (as we are only home in the US for 2 months every year). Our friends didn't believe that we would be able to pull off a wedding in such little time, but we... Read More not only pulled it off, it exceeded our expectations. In early January, we began searching for venues online using the Knot and the groom's parents as venue scouts. Once they visited Falkner, they said it was far and above the other venues. We started talking back and forth with Loretta through email and were pleased with how much the venue takes care of. We booked Falkner by the end of January (not yet setting foot on the property) and set the date for mid July: 7/15/17. Both Krissy and Loretta were great to work with throughout the planning process, and we felt so fortunate that no one else had booked the venue on our day. We paid for a few upgrades that allowed us to utilize the whole venue (Pinnacle outdoor ceremony, Pinnacle room cocktail hour and yard/garden reception); we have no regrets in the extra money we spent for these upgrades and the upgrade to extend our reception time until 11pm. We received so many complements on the venue. One of my friends told me they felt like they were at a celebrity wedding and just couldn't get over how beautiful everything was. The yard/garden reception was truly one of the most magical and romantic places to hold a reception. The sun was just setting as my dad was giving us a toast, and as it got darker, the fairy lights above were the perfect touch for a classy party on the dance floor. Krissy deserves her own review as I'm sure all of the details behind the scenes go off without a hitch thanks to her. She set us up with her cell phone the day before the wedding, and anything we needed the day of, she was right there. My anxiety was eased by the level of confidence, professionalism and expertise exhibited by Krissy and the rest of the team working the event. The Monday after our wedding, we drove back to Falkner to leave a card for Krissy; as we re-entered the property for what seemed like the last time, it felt bittersweet. We both commented on how perfect the venue was and how we hope we can revisit Falkner in our years to come. It's unbelievable how perfect everything turned out, considering 5 short months of planning and choosing a venue online. Nonetheless, if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience with Falkner from the first day we walked in for a tasting and tour to our wedding. The entire staff, and especially the events team with Krissy, were wonderful and catered to our needs. The wedding day went so smoothly and was...

I would absolutely recommend Falkner to anyone who wants a beautiful location, affordable options and excellent service. Thanks again!

We were considering this venue for our wedding. The views and sites for the ceremony and reception were breathtaking but unfortunately our guide was awful. The entire time she made unprofessional and completely unnecessary racially focused jokes. Then she had the nerve to ask my... Read More fiancée if he had a life threatening illness because of his pale complexion!!! She tried to make up for the comment once she realized he was just light skinned but by that point we were so horrified we couldn't look past this and decided to go with another venue. I don't know how they got so many awards when clearly they don't screen their employees well enough.

I never actually visited the winery but was in contact with the owner and all I can say is "yikes." I want my wedding as mellow and stress free as possible, but the owner is anything but. To start, she sent multiple consecutive emails before I could even check my messages with... Read More all caps PLEASE and ASAP (all caps = pet-peeve but was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt) just for an appointment. She then called an hour *before* our scheduled time and said "I'm not sure if you called to say you were running late or what's going on, but your appointment is at 4:15 so please call us back ASAP, we really need to hear from you." Who arrives an hour before their appointment time? I'm sure the venue is beautiful, but she seemed much too frazzled and unorganized for what I'm looking for.

We got married in May 2016 at Falkner the Pinnacle. We visited several other wineries but this one was a clear winner as soon as we stepped foot on the dramatic walkway to the ceremony location.

Krissy, our included day-of coordinator, was a godsend. She managed tricky family dynamics at our rehearsal, ensured set up was as we'd envisioned and made sure everything ran smoothly (including unbustling my dress at the bottom of the walkway before I hit the stairs).
