While the winery is only a short 20 minute ride from my home I had never heard of it or knew it existed until my wife and I decided to take a ride on a sunny Thursday afternoon. Although we were the o... read more »
We had our wedding on May 7th, 2016 in the Vintner's Barn at the Rose Bank Winery. We loved the winery because we looked high and low for barns that had a rustic feel but still had bathrooms, electricity and running water. When we found Rose Bank it was like a dream come true. The price was extremely competitive. The owners were super nice and helpful every single time we came out to look at the place, bring family, and meet with vendors. The owners allowed us to come in the day before since the space was not being used. This allowed us to set up the space perfectly. Being that we are from an hour away we needed help finding local vendors. They provided a list of great local vendors for us. Every single person that came to our wedding was blown away by the grounds and the venue space.
THIS IS A COPY OF THE EMAIL I RECIEVED WHEN I ASKED IF THEY WOULD RENT IT FOR $3800. IGNORANT! Hi Ashley! Rose Bank Winery replied to your message. I’m not going to start negotiating prices with you. The price for the venue is $4800 and we NEVER have a problem renting our venues as Rosebank Winery is a very sought after wedding venue. SO if we don't get your business we will be fine. Deposit is 50% (non-refundable)
1 star for the wine and 1 star for the service, but the venue itself is quite beautiful. The wines themselves are average, but they do offer some unique fruit wines (acai and pomegranate). Unfortunately, most of the fruit wines have a bitter, instant-puckering taste. The 3 different staff members providing pourings were very inattentive, and casually at that, as if wine pourings are served at their convenience. This is the kind of place where staff workers milling around chatting or looking at their phones is commonplace, regardless of if there are tasters with empty glasses or customers waiting to be checked out. One staff member in particular provided one of the most awkward wine tasting experiences of my life. We greeted her -- not the other way around -- after she ignored us standing at the counter for several minutes. First she started conversing with us in a whisper, then she spoke louder, making lots of unrelated comments. Eventually I asked where and how we do the tastings (she didn't see it fit to bring it up). She then asked if we'd done a tasting there before (probably not if I'm asking where and how we do a tasting?). Eventually she charged us for the tasting and then screwed up the register, which took another 3 minutes to resolve, then proceeded to give incorrect change. She then directed us to the tasting room. Once we got to the tasting room, she asked if we had received our drink voucher book (each tasting gets 8 slips of paper). We politely said no, and she realized she never gave them to us. She kept forgetting to take one (of our two) glasses to pour (as the tasting bar is split into different wine sections and not all bottles were at all locations). For the bottles that were located nearby, a few of her pours missed our glasses, and about halfway through the flight, she disappeared at the other end of the bar never to be seen again. Forgetfulness, screwing up the register, incorrectly counting change, missing pours, nonsensical conversation. Some of these things can be attributed to being nervous, maybe she's new, but ALL of them? Based on the fact she works in a tasting room -- I'm inclined to think this woman was tasting the wines herself -- and maybe a little too much.
Wine is not bad - especially liked rose. The wine tasting experience was kind of ruined though - one of the workers made a comment about our friends sharing glass (they weren't tasting extra) . Either make it a policy ahead of time or do not bring it up.
What an excellent venue! We had our wedding here recently and we were 110% satisfied with the location, the service, the staff, the wines and the overall ambiance of Rose Bank Winery! Between the sheep grazing in the vineyard, the rustic and restored beautiful barns and all of the uniqueness their location has to offer our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed the event! There was plenty of room for dancing and entertainment and different options for us to chose from depending on how large our reception list was. Given the venue and the location the prices were very reasonable. We also just discovered that they are building an addition and after looking at their website we are blown away! We would confidentially recommend this location over and over again! (In fact we frequent the winery whenever we can for samplings and events)
