A special benefit to getting married in Northern California is the opportunity to celebrate at one of our region's wineries. They offer enchanting

This historic old winery was founded in Sacramento by Italian immigrant James Frasinetti in 1897, which makes it the oldest family owned and operated wine producer in the Sacramento Valley. Current owners, third generation grandsons Howard and Gary Frasinetti, continue the tradition started by their ancestor. The brothers are well known for their hospitality and geniality. Although the winery no longer grows grapes onsite in its own vineyards, it still blends and produces delicious varietals for its tasting room and restaurant. The restaurant's Old World interior features huge 100-year-old aging barrels that add charm and character to weddings held there. It is warm and welcoming—ideal for fall or winter weddings up to 125 people. In warmer weather, Frasinetti's wedding garden with gazebo and lawn will accommodate up to 300 guests.
Looking for special touches that will excite your guests? Frasinetti's offers two: complimentary wine tasting and custom-labeled champagne or wine miniatures. Invite your guests to enjoy the Tasting Room and Gift Shop while you pose for photos, then, give each of them a wine miniature with your very own label as a favor to take home. Out of town guests really appreciate this touch! Whether your wedding calls for dinner for 30 or 300, Frasinetti's has many options for you.
