  • We had such a wonderful experience using Early Mountain for our wedding venue! We worked mainly with Sara (a little with Melissa as well) and I can't say enough great things! The venue is absolutely beautiful, Sara was responsive and amazing to work with and everything turned out beautifully. Thank you for helping to make our wedding absolutely incredible.

  • Early Mountain Vineyards was the perfect spot for our intimate microwedding! The surrounding area makes for a stunning backdrop, and all the staff were so accommodating, upbeat, and professional during our reception. Food is incredibly important for us, so finding a vineyard with convenient/high-quality in-house catering was a major factor, and all our guests were raving about the dinner. We also found the on-site cottage very spacious and cute. Overall, we were thrilled with our decision to go with EMV!

  • Early Mountain Vineyards was the perfect spot to cast my vision for my winter wedding. The fireplaces in both the banquet hall and the tasting room created the romantic winter feel I wanted. The staff was so easy to work with from wine tastings, flipping the room for the reception, and working with my team of vendors. The groomsmen room and cottage were idyllic and perfect for getting ready. You truly cannot go wrong with this beautiful place both inside and out .

  • Early Mountain was the perfect place for us to have our wedding. Melissa and the team made our dreams come true, even in the middle of a pandemic. Melissa was organized and helped us to decide exactly how we wanted our day to go! Even with rain all day, it was perfect! The food, drinks, and atmosphere were above and beyond.

    Thank you so much! You were so awesome to work with, it truly was our pleasure. Come back and visit soon!

  • From our first email inquiry to the wedding day and even after, we only have positive things to say about our experiences at EMV. The people were responsive, patient with questions, and lovely to communicate with (we worked with Abigail Schwab a lot, and adored her). Wine was delicious - plenty of options (rose was a personal fave). Agree with others- join the wine club for discounted cases; it was also fun to receive wine in the mail leading up to the wedding! Venue was a no-brainer...I've always loved EMV, but then I learned that they provide so much, which made our lives easier. It's also gorgeous, with options for inside and outside. Love the tasting room, verandas, ballroom with fireplaces, painted white brick, exposed ceiling beams... a truly romantic space. I got ready in the cottage (it was much bigger than I had originally pictured) and we stayed there the night-of; beautiful, quiet space -- loved being able to stay here. It also made it easy to visit the venue the next mornin... Read more

  • Picking EMV as our wedding venue was a no brainer. We came to EMV early on in our relationship and then Chris proposed here...so of course it had a special place in our hearts already! The venue is gorgeous to begin with...but then layer in the decor, florals, staff, service, wine, and THE FIREPLACES, and I can’t even begin to explain how this already amazing space truly transforms. The entire staff make it super easy to plan, coordinate, add, remove, really anything you need for your big day to be a success—starting with the preferred vendor packet they give you when you book them. This was the first place I started looking for vendors, having not used a wedding planner, and it was so helpful leading the way—especially since I live in DC and did not know any vendors in the Charlottesville area. You get a lot for your $$ here, with the venue providing a lot of the chairs, tables, decor, and general ambiance. Caterer has to be through their preferred list (but you have a goo... Read more

  • Early Mountain Vineyards (EMV) was the first venue I looked at and I knew from that moment it was perfect! We had a small (75 person) wedding, but it had so much space that it did not feel empty, but could easily accommodate more. The food- AMAZING. The wine- AMAZING. The service from EMV- AMAZING. Their new chef is phenomenal and many of our friends and family complimented us on the service, wine, delicious food, and all around great experience. Our coordinator through the EMV, Sara, was a GODSEND (someone give that woman a Christmas bonus!). She was always responsive, always helpful, always kind- she made me feel like I was a friend she was helping, not a client. The modern amenities like the elevator made my grandparents happy and the ease of the entire weekend from staying on the property, to our rehearsal, to the wedding, made me a happy bride. There was never a moment I worried or had to stress. Even without a wedding planner, Sara and the EMV team made my wedding a dream. I can'... Read more

  • Early Mountain Vineyards is an absolutely beautiful place to have a wedding at! We had our wedding here in Sept 2019 and guests are still raving about how stunningly gorgeous everything was - from the outdoor space where we had our ceremony in to the tasting room and terrace where we had our cocktail hour in to the Grand Hall where we had our reception in. There is also a bridal cottage that is PERFECT for getting ready (there are 3 bathrooms!) with one's bridesmaids and the couple gets to spend the night there on the wedding night. Furthermore, the staff at Early Mountain are so great and easy to work with. We are SO happy that we had our wedding here!

  • Early Mountain Vineyard was the first venue we toured and we knew right away it was the perfect fit for us. Virginia is full of beautiful vineyards but Early Mountain is the only venue that is just as beautiful inside as it is outside. It was so wonderful to not have to stress about the weather. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the wine is delicious and the cottage on the property is the cherry on top of this perfect venue. The chairs and lanterns that came with the venue rental saved us a lot of money on decor and centerpieces! My advice would be to make sure that you join their wine club before your wedding to get a discount on the wine. We ended up having to buy more wine than expected because even our non-wine drinkers were loving it!

  • Early Mountain Vineyards puts together a wonderful experience for the bride and groom and their guests. They worked closely with our other vendors to make our day magical! The tasting room and the ball room are simply breathtaking! They were very accommodating to all our needs and very quick to respond to emails and phone calls during the planning process! We loved working with them!

  • We knew almost immediately that Early Mountain was the right venue for us. The beautiful building is reminiscent of a castle and the grounds provide a beautiful mountain backdrop. We wanted to have an outdoor ceremony but also wanted to make sure we had a good indoor alternative in case of rain and the ballroom is a stunning room. We're so glad we kept this in mind because it poured on our wedding day but the ballroom was such a beautiful and romantic ceremony setting that it didn't put a damper on the day. Early Mountain was the perfect choice for our fairy tale wedding and we highly recommend it!

  • I cannot imagine a more perfect wedding venue than Early Mountain. From the first visit, to the wine tasting and final walk through, to everything the day of, the staff was so professional, responsive, and easy to work with. And the space is absolutely stunning. Our day was absolutely perfect - in large part to our pick of an absolutely flawless venue. The only thing I would warn you about is that their wine is somewhat pricey. However, we had no qualms about spending a lot of money on food and drink so it was not a big issue to us. If you want a beautiful venue that fits every need on your day - Early Mountain is where you should go. I am so glad we chose the as our wedding venue and can't wait to visit the beautiful tasting room in the future.

  • Early Mountain Vineyards was a gorgeous location for our wedding. The indoor and outdoor spaces are beautiful, and it was nice to have flexibility and not need to worry about weather (though thankfully we were able to use the lawn for our ceremony). It was beautiful in May, though I think a fall or winter wedding here would also be lovely. The tasting room and reception hall don't really need any work to look amazing. The cottage was a great space to get ready in, and we appreciated that we didn't have to drive back to Charlottesville the night of the wedding. Their event staff (I mostly communicated with Abby and Sara) were easy to get in touch with and very helpful. The only downsides for us were the distance from Charlottesville (about 45 minutes) and it is a little pricey - but well worth it!

  • We recently had our wedding at EMV. We absolutely loved the backdrop of the Shenandoah Mountains, and we loved the tasting room for our cocktail hour. The weather ended up being too cold/windy to have our ceremony outside, but the catering company was able to use the reception room and have it flipped. This allowed us to have beautiful lanterns along the walkway next to guest seats, and we had the backdrop of a beautiful fireplace and mantle. We were very happy with it. A bonus is that their wine is also terrific!

  • We had our wedding this fall at EMV and it was absolutely gorgeous – we loved our wedding venue! EMV provides the tables, chairs, fireplaces, lanterns, one-night-stay at the cottage, etc. That's the good part; however, when planning your wedding with EMV they are not the quaint vineyard professionals you're expecting. Expect to pay tons of money and then some, there is no flexibility with any of their time schedules, prices or rules. The event coordinators are half rude and half nice and basically get paid to scan your credit card and do nothing else. EMV staff will not lift a finger for you and they REQUIRE you do all the work yourself or hire out. The EMV staff mentality is "if you have an issue with the price, the time schedule or the absurd cost of our wine, then leave...someone else will pay even more to have their wedding at our vineyard." Your pictures will look great, but it's definitely a lot of hassle leading up to your wedding day.
