There are great things and bad things about this vendor. The best thing is the space. The vineyards are beautiful and the dining space is absolutely lovely. Also, the wine is very good quality and the food is good. Unfortunately, the portions are small so I felt that the value was low. Going along with the value is the fact that the vineyard managers are cheap. When we went for our tasting, my fiancé loved the sliders. He asked if he could try another, and the waitress told him that he was only allowed to try one. I was shocked. My guests commented on this during the wedding as well-- the staff was very cheap with pouring wine. And our entrée portions were very small. I was disappointed. Also, when we stopped by the vineyard on the night before our wedding to drop off floral arrangements and a seating chart, they didn't even offer a glass of wine. What type of venue does that? My husband and I had a two-day wedding and our other vendor was the opposite. When we went in for a tasting, they sent us home with dessert and offered a glass of wine. When you spend thousands of dollars on an event, you expect that a vineyard would offer a glass to toast your event. I was disappointed.
And finally, the worst problem is the lack of flexibility. If you host your event at the vineyard, music must stop at 10pm, you may only use the vineyard's preferred vendors, and there are strict time limitations.
And one final note, the vineyard did not exclude other guests during our wedding. Tour groups visited during our event and they interfered with our privacy and photo opportunities. I was very upset to see so many people intruding on our special day. I understand that the vineyard is a business, but when you pay a non-negotiable high fee to rent the space and use the facilities, you expect exclusive use of the space.
I would not recommend the Crossing Vineyards.
