Venue Spotlight: Jonathan Edwards Winery

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Few settings are as breathtaking as the sweeping hills of Tuscany- but if you’re lacking the funds or travel time to host your wedding under the Tuscan sun, you can still recreate the atmosphere at a beautiful vineyard like Jonathan Edwards!

Nestled away in scenic Stonington, Connecticut, Jonathan Edwards Winery is a gorgeous setting for your wedding. Not tying the knot? Jonathan Edwards is a unique space for all kinds of events, from baby showers to dinner parties. Take a look at the photos below and see how this venue can accommodate your next event!

Hosting your special day at a winery guarantees spectacular scenery with a romantic feel. The ceremony can be held on site in the vineyard, between the rows of home-grown grapes. During the reception, up to 200 guests can enjoy full use of the tasting room and stone patio. The large outdoor tent will ensure guests can enjoy the night, no matter the weather! JE Winery works exclusively with 2 caterers, so you can put your mind at ease knowing all food, staffing and rentals are handled professionally.

The winery is also a great choice for smaller events, like an anniversary party or corporate function. The Barrel Room is a charmingly rustic setting, surrounded by real wine barrels. This area comfortably seats 65 for an intimate dinner during any season. In the warmer months, guests can enjoy a function outside on the Stone Patio, where the westward-facing view provides a beautiful sunset.

Before you book that flight to Italy, take a trip to Jonathan Edwards Winery. The rolling hills, lush scenery and of course, delicious wine, will make this vineyard the perfect destination for your event!

Don't forget to add entertainment! An acoustic guitarist, harpist or violinist would make the perfect addition to an event held anywhere within this venue.
