Paso Robles California Winery Weddings

Looking for a California winery wedding to knock your garter off? Got one for you.

Located at the Martin & Weyrich’s Vineyard in Paso Robles, California, Villa Toscana Bed and Breakfast will make you feel like you're getting married in Italy. Maybe it's because of the vineyards all around you, or the terrace featuring limestone imported from Italy. Villa Toscana, after all, was modeled after an Italian estate, with spiral staircases, vine-covered trellis and an outdoor fireplace.

They can accommodate a variety of wedding parties, from the patio which accommodates 10 to 92 people, to the courtyard which accommodates 50 to 450 people.

Site Rental Fees are as follows: 0-50 guests: $2,500
51-100 guests: $3,000
101-200 guests: $5,000
201-300 guests: $7,000

This does not include catering for the reception. All caterers have to be approved by Villa Toscana. Call 805-238-5600 for more info.

If you're eloping, you might want to consider a simple ceremony off the grounds and then plan your honeymoon at Villa Toscana. Prices begin at $435 per night for a 700 sq. ft. suite on the weekend.

Other Paso Robles wineries available for weddings:

Meridian Vineyards
7000 Highway 46 East
You can get married in their landscaped gardens or the barrel room. I'd go for the barrel room. From groups of 5 to 500, which makes it a great choice for those of you eloping.

Meridian Winery is wheelchair accessible. Call them at 805-226-7133 for more information.


Zenaida Cellers
1550 Highway 46 West
Get married on their 1200 sq. ft. of oak shaded lawn or their barrel room, which can accommodate 50-60 guests. Again, it's a winery - go for their barrel room. The barrel room is available year round, except during the harvest months of September to early November. Their outdoor locations are available year-round.

Call 805-227-0382 for more information.


Want an inexpensive, but fun Paso Robles wine country wedding?

How about renting a trolley car which takes 20 people around to 5 different wineries for tastings? The tours start at $65 per person. They say they do weddings, so go to centralcoasttrolly.com for more information.

Why elope or plan a wedding in Paso Robles? Well, if you love wine or wine country, then Paso Robles is a don't-miss wine destination, located conveniently between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

While many automatically think of Napa Valley when they think California wines, it turns out that Paso Robles is California’s fastest growing wine region, with nearly 26,000 vineyard acres and more than 170 wineries within a 40-mile territory. Not only that, but it's a beautiful area to boot. Yes, yes, Napa Valley is beautiful, but it can get quite crowded. Not that Paso Robles is a sleepy little wine area. It can get a little crowded as well, but not like the hordes of people in Napa Valley. Paso Robles also turns out some outstanding Zinfandels. That alone is reason to visit.
