Rios Lovell Winery is a lovely spot located in the Livermore Valley wine country--did you even know there was wine country in Livermore? This place is beautiful, with panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains. It has 64 acres of gorgeous scenery for you and your guests to enjoy, not to mention really yummy wines. Wandering around, you’ll feel like you’re in the Italian countryside! I think the Livermore Valley is a nice change of pace from the usual Napa Valley wedding spots.
Rios Lovell Winery has the perfect spot for a picture-perfect ceremony: the white gazebo! Set in the middle of the vineyard, among the gardens, with gasp-worthy views of surrounding grapevines. Adding to the setting are both Roman-style fountains and a running brook, and your guests will arrive under an ivy-covered archway. Everywhere you look there are hanging flower baskets or flower-covered trellises--this place oozes romance, you’ll feel like you’re getting married in a Tuscan village!
They also will really make you feel special on your big day--they only book one wedding a day, so you won’t feel rushed or have to worry about sharing the space with another event. It’s totally your day! There are also private rooms for getting ready--both the bride and groom can chill with their peeps and get ready for the first look photos.
You’ve got a few choices, depending on the size of your guest list. The winery can host up to 300 guests in the gardens, gazebo, and village. For a smaller affair, the gala hall can hold 170 guests with an indoor dance floor; but if you move the dance floor outside, this area can hold 220 guests.
