Facilities and Capacity
In terms of capacity, this setting would be most suitable for those getting ready to celebrate an intimate occasion. As such, Vineland Estates Winery can host between 20 and 75 guests, depending on the chosen layout. For the all-important ceremony, a couple of places are available to choose from, including the patio or an interior space. For an open-air spectacle, the patio would be ideal as the to-be-weds can join side-by-side as they say their vows in front of their nearest and dearest. An arbor can easily be arranged for the couple of honor to stand at, flanked by members of the wedding party. As the magical, emotional moment takes place, guests can watch on from a seated position. For an indoor occasion, couples can tie the knot surrounded by their loved ones inside a room defined by overhead beams, exposed brickwork, and chapel-like appeal. Ample seating is also available here. As the day progresses, the wedding party can make their way towards the reception space as they await the grand entrance of the happy couple.
The Carriage House is the main reception space available. Up to 56 people can enjoy a sit-down experience here as they savour their meals, so it is ideal for intimate occasions. With roots in the late 19th century, there is a history to this building that permeates throughout. Tables and chairs can easily be arranged for guests to recline as they dine, and the place can be suitably decorated to reflect the happy moment.

Whimsical & Magical
First of all, finding the venue for our wedding was so important. It will set the tone for the entire event and Vineland Estates Winery definitely gave us that whimsical and magical feeling. It's straight out of a fairy tale with lush green vineyards that stretch as far as your eyes can see, beautiful sunset over the horizon, and trees and grasses that sway with the wind blowing. Very serene, calm, and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
When we first met with Diane (Director of Hospitality) at Vineland Estates Winery, we were immediately drawn to her peaceful aura. She was smiling a lot and very calm. Most of all she was genuine. On our drive to Vineland, we fell in love right away as soon as our car drove past the long stretch road leading to the carriage house. As soon as we stepped into the carriage house and the patio right beside it, we knew that this will be the magical place where we say "I do". Right away we booked this venue back in Fall 2017, less than a year before our big day.
We must say that Vineland Estates Winery is a PERFECT venue for a small intimate and romantic wedding. Diane made sure that she got all the small details they needed for our wedding. She was very accommodating and ensured that my husband and I were happy with everything. She even accommodated us to set up the day before to ensure that we had enough time for set up.
The FOOD was AMAZING!!! We were fortunate to try the food at their restaurant and their wines at the shop prior to our wedding date, and we must say the FOOD was amazingly delicious. It definitely matched the beautiful scenery of the venue. Our guests loved the food and they have nothing but positive feedbacks..."so delicious", "so tasty", and "so beautifully presented". The beef, chicken and salmon were all amazing. The salad was just divine and so fresh, and the dessert - Lindt Chocolate Lava Cake - WoW!!!
The SERVICE was excellent throughout the entire day. No wineglass was left empty and everyone was so kind and so hospitable. Our favourite part was when one of the waitress followed us during our photo session after the wedding to make sure that we get to eat and at least try the hors d'oeuvres. The pork belly and the fresh oysters were such a a big hit!
Vineland Estates Winery was reasonably priced for our wedding and the memories we had there will be cherished in the years to come. Diane, our wedding was perfect, thanks to your amazing staff and your beautiful venue and delicious food. We will definitely be back again. Love Mike & Kim.
PS Thanks for meeting with us before we walked down the aisle and see each other for the first time. It brought back memories when we first met almost a year ago. You're so genuine and we felt your warm regards and happiness for us. Also, our beloved dog, Miko, also says "Hi!"Sent on 15/08/2018
Vineland Estates Winery's reply:Thank you Michael and Kim. It was our pleasure. Thrilled the day was lovely for you both! Look forward to seeing you at the winery again soon!

Beautiful location for intimate wedding
My husband and I live in Shanghai but decided to get married in Canada where my husband is originally from. After a quick search online for venues in the Niagara on the Lakes region, I stumbled across Vineland. It was perfect for our budget, guest list, and desire to be married in a natural setting. We worked with Diane who was very responsive and helpful, answering all our questions via email. She patiently answered all my questions and elaborated when I needed my detail.
We didn't get to see the venue until the afternoon before the wedding, but when we did, we couldn't have been happier with our choice of venue. It is perfect. The carriage house is cozy, but even at full capacity, we didn't feel packed in. The deck is a good size for both the ceremony and cocktail hour and the view is splendid. The food, especially the appetizers, was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The only thing that didn't work out perfectly was how the music played out. We had our own playlist and just connected our laptop to the sound system, but it was very muffled sounding. We were in a hurry and doing a lot of the set up ourselves, so I would suggest working with the technician to make sure the sound is good both indoors and out before the wedding.
We also stayed on the property and had both the guest house and b&b. I would highly recommend staying on site. Both accommodations are really well appointed, there's plenty of room to stage and get set up before the wedding, and they provide lots of food and wine to further help you enjoy your stay.
All in all, it was an absolutely perfect venue for us and we'd recommend it to anyone looking to have an intimate wedding.Sent on 24/08/2018

Diane and her team made us feel very welcome! She was always available to answer any questions we had and to ensure we were taken care of the day of the wedding. Hands down best choice ever! Service, food and don’t forget about the beautiful location/scenery were out of this world.
Thanks again Vineland- you will always hold a special spot in our hearts.

Vineland Estates Winery was the perfect venue for us. We had been there before for wine tasting and were impressed by how beautiful the winery was. Although we looked at other venues I think I knew I wanted to get married at Vineland. We wanted a small wedding and the space was big enough for our 45 guests. Diane was quick to respond to all my questions, and her staff went above and beyond on the day to make sure everything went perfectly. Small things like bringing me a glass of sparkling wine while I was hidden away before the ceremony or putting out boxes so our guests could take home a cupcake really stood out for us. The food was excellent, and we received many positive comments from our guests. Portion sizes were surprisingly large for a wedding and they allowed us to substitute a dessert that wasn't on their list. My husband and I really enjoyed our day and we will definitely be back to visit the restaurant and wine shop.Sent on 04/08/2017

I've had the pleasure of planning events in The Carriage House at Vineland Estates Winery for 18 years. It's amazing place.
Just come and see the venue … it pretty much speaks for itself! Have a walk around and learn about all that we can offer. Experience the feel of the winery. Let us know your specific needs. We love to be creative and will do everything to make your event special. As cliche as it sounds, we will always say “it’s your day, not ours”.
Hope to meet you soon!
