Co- Creator/Owner Michael Elmer handles all aspects of events hosted at Via Vecchia Winery. He is passionate about bringing a smile to your face and ensuring that you can enjoy your experience with us.
Our winery can host up to 270 guests, seated and served, within 7,700 sqft. of entertainment space.
The Main Room Guests are welcomed through a beautiful gated patio that stays lighted throughout the evening. This area has seating, encouraging those whom would like to take a moment outside, to do so. The entry leads into our Main Room that is split-level, which features the original exposed wood ceiling beams, brick arches, and limestone walls from the 1800's, creating a unique and unforgettable atmosphere.
The main room has a 350 sqft. carpeted stage with removable barriers; Stage lighting is on the stage as well as a platform near the entry that is typically used by DJ's or Audio Control. Through the brick archways, there is a 10ft bar that can be fully operational depending on package and/or event. Old barrels and alcoves that home empty bottles add authentic validation of a fully functional urban winery~ Guests will soon be able to find images and memorabilia throughout the establishment to learn more about winemaking and the history of Via Vecchia Winery.
The Barrel Room As a subsidiary to the Main Room, guests can flow through into a more intimate space known as the Barrel Room. This is truly where you will find barrels of aging wine, as the winery is always in production. This area provides a Tasting Table and smaller Bar, modeling a fantastic setting for smaller gatherings, guests to mingle, or in the case of a wedding, a brief cocktail hour before Dinner.
The GreenRoom Our winery has a lockable 400 sqft. changing area, the GreenRoom, with a full bathroom that includes a shower. Inside there are several full length mirrors, a make-up table, a clothing rack as well as a a small personal refrigerator and petite couch, that creates a comfortable environment to relax before events or vows.
The guest bathrooms are conveniently located between the Barrel Room and GreenRoom. They are commercially accommodating and separated by gender.
Winery Production Space / Narnia Furthest away from the Main Room, our primary winery production area is found; We creatively call this Narnia. This space is not open to the public, because there will typically be wine in the process of fermentation, ageing and/or equipment being stored. The Vintners are the only individuals that have access to this space; If you are visiting please feel free to ask either Paolo Rosi or Michael Elmer for a tour!
Please Note: Our annual CRUSH is during the month of October. This production is necessary and normal for Via Vecchia Winery, so there may be unique smells of yeast / wine during this time. There may also be the additional noise of production taking place. We will not be able to arrange alternative time frames for the annual CRUSH, and sincerely appreciate your consideration to our business.
