Established in 1839, America’s oldest winery is something of a destination wedding experience right here in the Hudson Valley. For couples who love to sip vino together, the winery is the place to tie the knot. The Grand Salon is a relic of 19th-century stonemasonry and a gorgeous venue for ceremonies with 220 guests or less. Smaller ceremonies can tuck into the onsite chapel, while larger groups can spread out on the 5,000-square-foot patio. Afterward, bridal parties can retreat to the expansive underground wine cellars for an unforgettable dinner or sip and sample top-rated pours in the tasting room.

When it comes to time-tested wedding locales in the Hudson Valley, Magnanini Winery is a cut above. Couples can customize the big day to their preferences and party size, opting to host the ceremony at the winery itself, which accommodates up to 190 guests, or at the Two Hearts Vineyard, which works for weddings of any size. The winery is ideal for an indoor/outdoor experience, since ceremonies have the freedom to begin on the deck or in the garden, then move inward to the restaurant for dinner. The vineyard, meanwhile, is the way to go for stunning views of the nearby lake and rolling Hudson Valley terrain. After the ceremony, guests can retreat to the patio and gazebo for cocktails, dinner, and dancing.

Set in the countryside of Dutchess County, Millbrook Winery is a delight for brides who crave options. For smaller, indoor weddings, the 1940s-style barn, which comes complete with an airy ceiling and local art, is a must. Up to 120 guests can wander through wide-frame doors that evoke an indoor/outdoor feel for an intimate dinner or ceremony. In the warmer months, the winery offers multiple venue locations across its 130-acre estate. Anyone who opts to go the outdoor route can rent a tent to bring the party to the vineyard grounds.

For a quintessential winery wedding, look no further than Nostrano Vineyards. Nestled quietly in Milton, the property channels an almost otherworldly quality that brings to mind local legends like Rip Van Winkle and Sleepy Hollow. Host the ceremony in the vineyard proper, which sits at the foot a sloping Hudson Valley hillside. When it comes time to dine, bring smaller parties to the Pinterest-worthy barn for an evening of twinkle lights, celebratory conversations, and laughter that brightens the wee hours of the evening. Plus, the frosés here are to-die-for.

After couples tie the knot, they can relax and celebrate with top-of-the-line catering from Corner Stone Caterers, chic bar setups, and a firepit at night. While the entire vineyard stuns as a wedding destination, it really delivers with little details like charming toiletry baskets, live trees at the reception, and even a beer canoe.
