A bit of Tuscany close to home: Wölffer Estate Vineyard

The Christian Wölffer Estate Vineyard, is a 55 acre winery located in Sagaponack, L.I., in the heart of the Hamptons. Upon your arrival, you’ll be immediately transported to a Tuscan Village. Founded in 1988, by Christian Wölffer has become one of the most sought out locations for events, especially weddings.
Upon entry, the floor to ceiling french doors, open onto a stone terrace bordered with hydrangeas, that kiss the Tuscan...I mean South Hampton sky. The use of classic fall colors like oranges, yellows and burgundy are perfect especially as we enter fall.  Then again, so are deep plum, blue and every imaginable green will work year round.  Let your color choice be, the splashes of color against the sun-kissed exterior of Wölffer, or the classic backdrop of a blue sky and ready-to-harvest vines. Truly, less is more. 

Even though the winery is 12,000 square-feet and over 55 acres of vineyards, it has a very intimate feel and extremely inviting. You can host up to 175 guests for dinner and dancing on the terrace or the adjacent tasting room. While they do charge a venue fee, you will receive a 15% discount on all wines that you enjoy at your wedding. This discount might be the perfect 'gift' for your guests.  Just a note, because of the town ordinances, all music MUST END at 11:00pm. They can also provide Kosher menus for those that request a Kosher wedding.

I always thought that if I got married in a vineyard, it would have to be in Napa.  However, did you know, you CAN NOT get married among the vines in Napa? Honest, it's against the law there (but I hear they're working on it!). Here at Wölffer, you don't have to worry about that.  They have a cute gazebo surround by acres and acres of fragrant vines if that's your choice. What a beautiful picture that will be.
Go for a visit year-round. Enjoy some wine and selection of artisanal cheeses. Or guys, if you’re thinking of proposing, why not celebrate harvest at their party (complete with grape picking and stomping then a lunch) and let dessert be her ring atop a piece of cake, or floating in her glass of Wölffer sparkling wine?  Why not enjoy Twilight Thursday, which offers live jazz, complimentary cheese and wine by the glass as you watch the sun set. Can you say ROMANCE?

Make this the "Tuscan Wedding" you've always wanted only a lot closer to home.

This is a vineyard that has it all.
