Here at Gainey, at the start of every New Year, we get a lot of newly engaged couples booking our winery or barn for their big day. Gainey provides the perfect blend of romance, beautiful views, manicured gardens, and of course, great wine. But there are a few things to keep in mind when planning a wedding at an estate vineyard. We talked to Kerry Lee Dickey of Santa Barbara Wine Country Wedding & Events to get her professional tips on what makes for a successful winery wedding.
The Barn at Gainey is perfect for couples who want rustic-chic elegance set against the pastoral loveliness of rolling hills, a creek, and live oaks. Built in the 1890’s, The Barn is located on the Gainey Ranch about a half-mile drive from the winery. This site offers a distinctive setting that allows you to use multiple spaces with everything from a sweeping meadow, to the shade of live oaks, to the rural charm inside the barn. The Barn is an enchanting site unlike any other property in the Santa Ynez Valley.
Wedding season is in full swing here at Gainey Vineyard. We love to see how different couples use our space and design the wedding of their dreams at our vineyard and barn locations. Here's a sampling of some of the recent weddings we've had the honor of hosting on our property.
