Words can not describe how grateful we were to Kelsey, Kristin and her wonderful family for providing our daughter and her now husband the most beautiful and memorable wedding they could have ever imagine on what could have been a disaster. On the day of Kristie and Dan’s wedding the fires were still swirling around Chelan. When they arrived at the Rio Vista for their photos before the wedding the wind had kicked up. There was an erie glow in the sky and ash had landed on the place settings that had been set up outside for their “outdoor” wedding. Thanks to the quick thinking of Kelsey and Kristin the whole dinner party was moved to the tasting room and we were treated to the first indoor wedding reception ever at the Rio. It was amazing and very well orchestrated. As for the actual wedding ceremony the sky miraculously cleared and Kristie and Dan were able to get married under the weeping willow tree and family and friends were able to dance the night away outside under the stars. Thanks again Rio Vista for the most amazing wedding ever!! ~Vince and Colleen Cotroneo (Father and Mother of the bride) August 2, 2014.

Consultation:  Included in your venue fee is an exclusive two hour consultation with one of our event coordinators.  The meeting time will be dependent upon the agreement of both the client and the consultant.  We will assist in decisions regarding wine selection, ceremony lay-out, rehearsal times, and your event’s timeline.

Wedding Rehearsal:  Two hours will be allotted for your rehearsal as a part of your venue package fee.

Decorations:  Although the grounds are very beautiful themselves and do not require decorations, we highly encourage you to incorporate your own personal touches as to have the wedding that you have always envisioned.  All flowers and other decorations must be kept in good taste.  Flowers and larger rentals may be delivered to Rio Vista Wines the evening before or the morning of your event to be kept in the cellar. Supplies needed to decorate are the responsibility of the client.  All decorations must be removed immediately after your event’s completion.

Please Note: Normal tasting room hours will conclude at 6:00 pm.  If you are setting up within the winery’s operational time we ask that you be courteous and do not disrupt other customers.

Alcoholic Beverages:  Rio Vista Wines offers a lovely variety of both white and red wines.  At your consulting appointment you will have the opportunity to sample the wines and to choose which you will be serving at your event (cases may be mixed.)  If you choose to serve beer, it must also be purchased through Rio Vista Wines.  Wine and beer selection is to be paid in full 30 days prior to your event.  A customary 18% service charge fee will be added to the final balance of all beverages.  All beverages purchased through Rio Vista Wines will be poured by a wine steward as a part of the overall venue fee within a three hour time frame.  An hourly bar tender fee of $50.00 will be administered after the allotted three hours.  Additional wine may be purchased throughout the duration of your event as needed. All non-alcoholic beverages are the responsibility of the client.

Catering: Rio Vista Weddings does not provide food to be served the day of your event.  We do however work with a great number of caterers who would be happy to help you plan the perfect meal for your wedding day.  If caterers are outside the scope of your budget, we do allow for the customer to acquire a banquet permit which will allow for close family members to make and bring the food themselves.  Rio Vista does not have a full function kitchen so food will need to be prepared off site and brought in by either the caterer or the customer.

Photographs:  Photographs may be taken anywhere on Rio Vista Wine’s property. You may use the property for photo use four hours prior to the start time of your event unless other times are pre-arranged.

Music:  We welcome all bands and DJ’s. Music must cease at the agreed upon conclusion of your event and must be broken down and cleaned up immediately afterwards.

Reservations and Booking Fees:  In order to reserve your event date, a $1,000 non-refundable booking fee will be collected with your up-to-date credit card information on file.  Payment of the total estimated bill is due 30 days prior to your event.  Your credit card will remain on file for any additional balances that may occur on the day of your event.

Parking:  Rio Vista Wines has plenty of room for parking for your guests. A parking attendant will be included in your venue fee to help guide anyone with vehicles. We do however recommend a local shuttle service for both you and your guest’s convenience.

Weather:  Rio Vista Weddings is not responsible for inclement weather.  Please discuss arrangements with your event coordinators as to the extra rental of tents and/or other equipment.
