The perfect venue

Early Mountain Vineyard was the first venue we toured and we knew right away it was the perfect fit for us. Virginia is full of beautiful vineyards but Early Mountain is the only venue that is just as ... Read more as beautiful inside as it is outside. It was so wonderful to not have to stress about the weather. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the wine is delicious and the cottage on the property is the cherry on top of this perfect venue. The chairs and lanterns that came with the venue rental saved us a lot of money on decor and centerpieces! My advice would be to make sure that you join their wine club before your wedding to get a discount on the wine. We ended up having to buy more wine than expected because even our non-wine drinkers were loving it!

LOVED everything about EMV!

From our first email inquiry to the wedding day and even after, we only have positive things to say about our experiences at EMV. The people were responsive, patient with questions, and lovely to ... Read more communicate with (we worked with Abigail Schwab a lot, and adored her). Wine was delicious - plenty of options (rose was a personal fave). Agree with others- join the wine club for discounted cases; it was also fun to receive wine in the mail leading up to the wedding! Venue was a no-brainer...I've always loved EMV, but then I learned that they provide so much, which made our lives easier. It's also gorgeous, with options for inside and outside. Love the tasting room, verandas, ballroom with fireplaces, painted white brick, exposed ceiling beams... a truly romantic space. I got ready in the cottage (it was much bigger than I had originally pictured) and we stayed there the night-of; beautiful, quiet space -- loved being able to stay here. It also made it easy to visit the venue the next morning, see if we left anything there, and grab flowers. :) My only concern had been the distance from Cville where our guests were staying, but it was a non-issue. We arranged transportation for everyone; it's a straight-shot and easy. AND out guests raved about the venue! We felt the cost of the venue was really reasonable for what you get. In sum, EMV was everything we hoped it would be and more. It was the easiest wedding-related decision we had to make. We are incredibly grateful and glad that we had our wedding there. It was the happiest day of our lives; THANK YOU to everyone at EMV who contributed to the ease and joy of the day.
