In addition to being a premium winery, District Winery also delivers a remarkable culinary experience. We offer both family style service and plated dinner service, and all wedding cuisine is handled in-house by Executive Chef Benjamin Lambert. Our refined wedding menus highlight seasonal ingredients to provide you and your guests with a delectable and memorable dining experience. In addition to our standard offerings, wedding couples also have the option to include signature cocktails, a raw bar, late night stations, wine bottle favors, and more.
We take great pride in our culinary offerings, so we give all District Winery wedding couples the opportunity to experience our cuisine before finalizing their wedding menu. After booking a District Winery wedding, couples are invited to group couples tasting events where they taste their way through many of our menu items and wines in our private wedding venue space.
