Celebrations, Parties, Showers & Weddings
Thank you for considering Unionville Vineyards for your special event. The winery offers several choices for hosting your celebration. Gatherings can be held in the Winery building, the Tasting Room, the Cave, on our new patio under a seasonal tent, or the lawn behind the mansion.
The ambiance of our historic 1858 Tasting Room, which overlooks the winery floor, is perfect for an intimate gathering of friends & family or an excellent space to host casual group get-togethers. In the evening, the forty foot bar can accommodate groups of up to 50 people for a casual cocktail style gathering featuring hors d’oeuvres & wine service, or a seated event for 30 guests.
Downstairs, the Winery Floor can be rented for day or evening events for parties, with wine and food pairing stations or for a more formal sit down dinner at an attractive vineyard-style table seating 60. Combine the Winery Floor with the rental of the Cave or Tasting Room to provide a unique venue for up to 100 guests.
Inside the more intimate, stone-walled Cave Room, handsomely appointed with wine barrel tables and wooden stools, smaller events such as showers, wine tastings & business events are held. The carriage house doors open onto the patio, offering stunning views of the sunset over the Amwell Ridge Vineyard. Acres of preserved farmland make for the idyllic view.
Weddings or larger events can be held on our new brick patio outside the Cave Room from May through October. The location offers a 3,200sqft high-peak tent complete with twinkle lights, chandeliers, and palladium window siding. The Vineyard Package offers event spaces to incorporate the beautiful outdoor vineyard scenery, the Cave Room & the Winery Floor for cocktails or dancing after dark.
For your ceremony, the lawn behind the 1858 Mansion provides a view of the Home Vineyard, the picturesque backdrop to your "I Do's." The first floor of the house is available as a hideaway, for the bride and her wedding party prior to the ceremony. Use of the wedding site, mansion and two portable “Celebrity” restrooms are included in the wedding package.
Catering for your Special Event
Unionville has an exclusive catering agreement with Main Street Fine Catering of Princeton. Main Street is the only caterer in New Jersey to win “best of” awards from both The Knot and WeddingWire for 7 consecutive years. They are very familiar with Unionville’s facilities, and are best able to deliver a memorable and delicious dining experience, from passed hors d’oeuvres or food stations to multi-course wine paired dinners. You will work directly with your caterer to plan the menu of your dreams, as well as linens, dishes, decorations and any additional furniture required for your special day. Main Street Fine Catering can also provide bar service with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with the proper license and permit. Only Unionville Vineyards wines may be served at events, and we require one case of wine be purchased per every 20 guests. Wine that is not consumed during the event will be taken home by the event host.
We encourage you to visit the 1858 Tasting Room to make your wine selection or peruse our online store.
Logistics & Details
Events may be held year-round at Unionville Vineyards until 11:00 PM. The township of East Amwell requires that all music that can be heard outside of the winery building must end no later than dark. Music may still be played inside the winery. Sunrisesunset.com provides sunrise and sunset time for each calendar date. At dusk, the DJ or band may move inside to the winery tank room and your party with music and dancing can continue on the Winery Floor, a fun and unique place to party!
It is important to remember that Unionville Vineyards is a working farm. Vineyard work, harvesting, bottling, blending and tasting are ongoing in and around the winery. The winery floor is kept at cool temperatures and the vineyard grounds can be soft, wet and uneven so be sure you and your guests have appropriate attire and shoes. We will do everything possible to ensure that your event is not affected by vineyard work, but we want you to understand and be comfortable with the environment.
Only Unionville Vineyards wines may be served at the winery. The winery staff may refuse service at any time as deemed necessary.
