We're sharing our favorite venues with you here on the blog, and revealing why we love them so much. Thomas Fogarty Winery steals our hearts with unparalleled views of the bay, five star treatment, and unique features that you just can't find anywhere else.
Location, Location, Location
An hour out of SF proper and an easy drive for the rest of the bay, Thomas Fogarty Winery occupies it's own enchanted hillside that creates an air of anticipation before you even arrive. The climb up is beautiful (and made for capturing aerial footage!) and gives you hints of the amazing view you'll get once you're on the property. Close to two major airports and accessible to bay area locals, this choice of venue will be a crowd-pleaser.
See our highlight reel of Thomas Fogarty Winery below.
This hidden gem is made up of three stunning redwood and stone buildings that cascade down a hillside overlooking an amazing panorama of the Bay and peninsula. It's a relaxing retreat that feels amazingly intimate nestled between a forest of pines and rolling vineyards. The Hill House is designed with incredible attention to detail, featuring a stone fireplace, beautiful woodwork, skylights, a wine bar and a professional kitchen. From comfortable seating indoors, as well as from the semi-glass-enclosed terrace, you can see for miles—past the vineyards all the way to the distant bay.
A covered pavilion doesn't begin to describe the incredible redwood architecture of the expansive outdoor venue. 270 degrees of bay, peninsula, and city are visible from this breezy spot, impressive enough to hold 200+ guests.
For a cinematographer or photographer, this venue is filled with dramatic, beautiful backdrops for capturing images. Not only are the building interiors and exteriors wonderfully California rustic, but the landscaping is romantic and immaculate, and the grounds bordered by miles of vineyards and pine trees.
