Best of Napa & Sonoma 2015: Rehearsal Dinners

There's no better way to start the wedding weekend on a high note than with a delicious, intimate rehearsal dinner with your nearest & dearest. But with so many fabulous restaurants & private dining spaces in Wine Country, how do you settle on a location?

Turn to Borrowed & Blue, of course! In the 2014 Best of B&B competition, former & current brides & grooms, vendors, & anyone vested in throwing a great party weighed in on everything from the best photographer to the perfect locally inspired wedding favors, & today we're revealing which space has taken the top spot when it comes to rehearsal dinners. Read on!

First Place

Brix Restaurant is located in stunning Yountville, California, on 16 acres & has been providing fresh farm-to-table cuisine as early as 1996 to many delighted gourmands & oenophiles. We love that much of this farm-to-table deliciousness comes from the grounds just outside, as the restaurant also boasts vegetable gardens, citrus & fruit orchards, & vineyards.

With four unique private dining spaces, it's no surprise that local & destination brides alike turn to Brix for their rehearsal dinners (and weddings, too!). The most intimate space is the Reserve Wine Cellar which seats 12, or for 26 guests, take a look at The Cottage that overlooks the flower gardens, the Brix Vineyard, and the Mayacamas Mountains! For a larger affair of up to 60, the Oakville Room provides ample space for a cocktail hour before dinner. Then, for the main affair, you can dine among the vines with 250 of your closest friends & family!


Tra Vigne in historic St. Helena in the heart of the Napa Valley is celebrating 25 years & we're thrilled to help commemorate that by sharing how much the wedding community loves their space for rehearsal dinners! Tra Vigne specializes in Tuscan cuisine blended with things Napa is known for - fresh & local ingredients, handmade preparation, and of course, fabulous wines. For couples hoping for a more casual rehearsal, Tra Vigne Pizzeria offers just that. Wine Country has spoken & they want you to consider Tra Vigne for your rehearsal dinner!
