Founded back in 1885, V. Sattui occupies a massive vine-covered stone building in the classic manner of Early California. The surrounding landscape is quintessential Napa: a backdrop of magnificent hillsides covered with chaparral and live oaks; acres of lush, green lawns; and row upon row of grapevines.
A stone patio in front of the winery has several small terraces that make a dramatic descent down to a courtyard hugged by the two-story winery. A path sprinkled with rose petals marks the wedding aisle, and flowering shrubs, saplings, a gnarled oak, and garlands draped on the balconies create a lovely garden atmosphere. Evening ceremonies in the courtyard are magical, with luminarias flickering along the aisle and twinkle lights illuminating the balconies.
While the bridal party takes photographs in the many picturesque settings on the property, guests soak up the vineyard ambiance at the Vittorio Garden Terrace, where water splashing from a large Mediterranean-style fountain contributes to the festive mood.
Guests dine in a castle-like wine cellar, where hand-hewn stone walls, heavy ceiling timbers and wine barrels evoke an Old World atmosphere. The cellar takes on a haunting beauty by candlelight, so go ahead and lavish the room with votive candles in wall ledges, atop rows of oaken barrels and on the tables.
At V. Sattui, the wine you serve will be as appreciated as the scenery. While their fine varietals are paired with the exquisite cuisine served up by the event pros in the hospitality department, you and your guests will savor every detail of your culinary experience. In fact, everything at this historic venue will make your celebration a landmark event.
