The handmade cedar patio looks over the most dramatic view at Farmer and Frenchman – the Vineyard Lawn and 70+ acres of rolling hills, thickets, and agricultural fields. Restrooms are located next to the barn and are connected by a covered boardwalk called the Promenade.
The Promenade is a covered boardwalk that connects the winery, bathrooms and barn. Handcrafted of cedar, and with artisanal lighting, the Promenade is a breezy place for up to 50 guests seated at tables.
The Vineyard Lawn
We designed our vineyard envisioning the romance of saying your vows among the vines. A wide, ample row allows for seated guests and an aisle for the wedding march.
