Weddings

Grandale Restaurant and 868 Estate Vineyards offer a breath-taking, historic Virginia setting for your wedding celebration. Our 120 beautiful acres of lush, manicured lawns showcase our vineyards, the rolling hills of the estate and, most importantly, the bride and her wedding party.

Whether you’re planning an outdoor wedding celebration for up to 250 or a more intimate gathering, Grandale and 868 Estate have the perfect venue. Our tented ceremony and reception sites feature the scenic backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which along with our picturesque vineyard, natural stone walls, majestic trees, and seasonal flower beds, are perfect for capturing memorable photos.

The property renders an authentic historic farm feel, yet with sophistication and elegance. In addition to delighting your guests with our unique wedding setting in Virginia’s wine county, we offer our Executive Cottage for the bride and her bridal party. The cottage is a fully functional home that can accommodate ten bridal party members for dressing and final preparations up to three hours before the ceremony.

 Grandale Restaurant offers award-winning catering by Chef Author Clark, Jr. Chef Author, a pioneer of the farm-to-table movement whose specialty is Modern American Haute Cuisine, works closely with you to make your special day everything you dreamed it could be. Grandale still operates with a “local” mindset, either growing or sourcing most food items from nearby farms and providers.
