With the best vineyard views in the valley, the majestic grand lawn offers 30,000 square feet of space for the ceremony and accommodates up to 400 guests for dining and reception.

For smaller gatherings, an open-air covered pergola surrounded by 150-year-old heritage olive trees is ideal for a 200-guest reception, or a walled rose garden can host 100 guests.
