Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison County, Early Mountain Vineyards is an award-winning winery on the Monticello Wine Trail as well as a popular wedding venue. They have an ambience described as “rustic yet refined” and stunning views of the mountains. The beautiful winery has a welcoming atmosphere with a roaring fireplace in the Tasting Room in winter and a Terrace with outdoor seating (and a view!) in the warmer months.
Early Mountain has both indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception options and a rustic barn for photographs. All of this and an on-site catering staff makes this venue a great choice for weddings up to 200 guests!
Ceremony and Reception
For the big day there is the Terrace and Great Lawn for the ceremony and cocktail reception and the Event Hall for a sit-down dinner and reception. Rain? No problem! The staff at Early Mountain is experienced in turning their well-appointed Tasting Room into a ceremony and cocktail reception venue at a moment’s notice when the storms roll in. A Guest Cottage nestled among the grapevines serves as a bridal dressing suite and a romantic first night for the couple. And couples will receive a discount on wine!
An extensive preferred vendor list of dependable professionals provides a wide variety of options while assuring the bride and groom that their wedding will go off without a hitch.
Early Mountain will also gladly host Rehearsal Dinners, Bridal Luncheons, Post-Wedding Brunches and Bridal Showers.
This venue is beautiful and definitely worth a visit—and a wine tasting!
