  • Being in wedding photography, we are always THRILLED when a client chooses Cannon River Winery. Their staff is always friendly and extremely efficient and the opportunities for photography gold are endless. Cannot sing their praises enough!
  • Very helpful staff, and good salespeople. My wife tried several different wines and bought a couple of bottles. I wasn't crazy about them but she seemed to like a couple of varieties. They sell beer too to accommodate people like me who don't appreciate wine. It was a beautiful afternoon and a nice day to sit at their outside tables. They sell a small variety of clothing items too.
  • The staff was so helpful in assisting me on picking the perfect wine for a gift! Great place, great wine!
  • WEDDING REVIEW: Being in the wedding business, I had expected a little more organization and back up planning. We had our wedding at the end of September. Communication was great until our big day. Overall Planning: Anne was prompt with emails and sending out notices if we missed anything, and was cordial enough to let us drop off our decorations the night before. Day of: I met Anne, her assistant and the General manager before I started getting ready and everything was going smoothly. We were told that Anne would be our 'Main contact' throughout the day and she would be there to help out with the ceremony. That changed, and the assistant was sent out to the vineyard with the GM. Vineyard: Due to being in the middle of harvest season, we knew that there may be a few workers out in the vineyard when we arrived at 2p.m. They did not leave until before the ceremony started. My brother had to ask the workers TWICE to stop using the bobcat so we could have our first look and take family photos without it in the background. Bussing: There is required bussing to the vineyard site due to limited parking. Cannon River has an "exclusive" bussing company they use.. We needed 3 buses- 1 from the hotel and two from the winery. At 2 p.m, before our first look (3 hours before the ceremony) the assistant notified my husband that one driver was sick and they could only get 2 buses and " It happens all the time and we just make it work". We were NOT refunded for this bus. If we would known earlier we could have secured another bus. One of the two drivers got LOST on the way out to the ceremony. The guests that were on the first round of buses were not notified that the ceremony would be starting 30minutes later due to a bus needing to pick up the rest of the guests. Ceremony: There is a charge for rehearsal, so all planning and timing needs to be done the day of. The wedding party is to walk through the vineyard rows as an aisle to the ceremony site. The GM and assistant were using texts to notify when to send the bridal party down the aisle, which was delayed due to limited cell service. Reception: GREAT! Ryan is the head bartender and was absolutely amazing to work with! Cannon River is an AMAZING venue and was wonderful location for our wedding, but we expected more respect and organization for those 'What If/ Backup" events. Overall I am pleased with how everything turned out but just wanted to give an honest review to those looking to have their wedding here, and hopes their day will be smoother than ours!
  • Spent the afternoon here with my girlfriend and we had so much fun tasting wine. What a fun atmosphere and the servers were wonderful.
