Wine Country Weddings offer you the opportunity to mix love and passion. With Joyelle from Kosta Browne winery coordinating the events, Heidi and Kevin were in for a dream destination wedding. Accompanied by their close friends, together they enjoyed private tastings, selected vintages and personal chefs. The bride, groom and friends had a truly memorable time.
Thursday they set off, bringing their passion for great wine to the Lynmar Estate. "The Lynmar Estate offers a unique and an in-depth, privately hosted experience customized to meet your wine education needs. With a selection of six limited release wines, this purely wine-focused experience explores the subtleties of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay."
Littoria Winery was next for a small family owned winery experience. Littoria Winery produces World Class Chardonnay and Pinot from the Northern California Coast.
The wedding was smooth as silk with one tiny hiccup. A last minute dash for the rings during the ceremony, a good laugh amongst friends and soon enough the bride and groom were married. Then it was on to a superb dinner prepared by Chef Greenwald, owner of Bay Laurel Culinary with Chef Meany by his side. Fresh Bay Shrimp, Roasted Chicken consomme and Griled Fillet with wild mushrooms were just a few of the items for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the barrel room for a private tasting, and an exquisite cake from Patisserie Angelica topped the evening.
Located in the new Barlow center of Sebastopol, the story of Kosta Browne is as fascinating as their wines. Nurturing lasting relationships with growers and the area since 1997, Kosta Browne produces premium Sonoma County wine. Hosting regular events, tasting and dinners, I believe Heidi and Kevin are the first to be married at the Winery and maybe in the Barlow.
