    Perfect Location!

    We had a very small wedding with our immediate family in attendance... only 24 people. We wanted a place that was classy but intimate. Dark Horse was able to provide the perfect location! The winery was decorated for the holidays and was absolutely stunning! It made our wedding very memorable. Our guests were very impressed!
    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and provided us with excellent service.
    We would highly recommend the Dark Horse Estate Winery to anyone planning a wedding!
    Glen and Kevin

    Stunning venue!

    An amazing venue! The service was excellent as well! We heard so many wonderful comments from our wedding guests and family about the venue being absolutely breathtaking (we already knew this and that's why Dark Horse was our first and only choice for a venue!). Our guests had a great experience in such a unique place. Our rehearsal dinner in the barrel cellar was so beautiful and special, and the experience of getting ready with my mom and bridesmaids in the Dark Horse VIP room was incredible! Dark Horse really catered to all of our needs! My only point about the wedding coordination was that there was a lot of back and forth and not all information was presented in a complete package up front, so I had to ask a lot of questions in order to understand how things would go at the venue. However, Dark Horse provided me with a great contingency plan when the weather was too wet outside for a vineyard ceremony and the wedding ended up still being very beautiful and intimate in their lower wine cellar room.
    What a perfect and dreamy wedding day and I wish I could relive it again!

    Highly recommend

    My fiancé and I have booked this venue via virtual tour by Holly. She did an amazing job showing us using face to face video seeing the grounds and the area in which would best suit our personal wedding come July 2021. The place is gorgeous beyond words, and that was clearly shown we didn't have to have a tour we fell in love via video!
    Cheers
    Jordan and Tawnya

    Gorgeous venue with a problem solving staff!

    Absolutely beautiful scenery and very accommodating wedding/event coordinators! My COVID-19 wedding experience was a nightmare with having to reschedule my wedding two times; Dark Horse helped ease the stress of the chaos, and brainstormed options that complied with health and safety regulations (the best part: these options mirrored my wedding vision)! Although it seems like COVID-19 brides are limited, Dark Horse made the experience significantly better with their support and kindness! Side Note: The Rosé Slushie is to die for!!!

    Stunning and perfect

    Dark Horse Winery was the perfect setting for our wedding. The venue was stunning and Holly the event coordinator helped made the day perfect. She was willing to help with anything we needed and couldn't have pulled it off without her. We would recommend this venue to everyone.
