I had an amazing experience at Upper Shirley Vineyard for my launch party. The entire process leading up to the event was extremely smooth and every question I had was answered quickly and in full detail. I felt completely ready for the event once I arrived and felt as though the staff was really there to help me if I needed it. Every single staff member had a smile on their face the entire time and I had absolutely no issues. The bartender engaged with the guests but wasn't over-bearing, Ari-Ahna was always visible if I needed her and helped in any way she could, Catherine was extremely helpful the months and weeks leading up to the event and all of the staff who served food and prepared did such a wonderful job. Not only did the food and beverages taste good but they look beautiful as well. I can't wait to have another event at USV!

"We celebrated my Mom's birthday with cocktails followed by a seated dinner at Upper Shirley and were simply blown away! Catherine and her entire team made the evening so fun and easy to plan. They were incredibly accommodating to our every need and went out of their way to assure the night was special. The food was beautiful and delicious and went perfectly with the amazing Upper Shirley wines. The stunning venue was the perfect setting for our birthday celebration and I cannot recommend it enough! We cannot wait to go back!"

It was a fabulous event for my husband’s surprise 40th birthday party on Saturday, September 23rd at Upper Shirley Vineyards! Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting, delicious food and the great service that you and your team provided. We received the glowing feedback from our guests and we couldn’t be happier.

Catherine- we can’t thank you enough for your hard work on Saturday when we decided to move some of the tables outside due to allow more room on the dance floor. I was very impressed of how the event ran smoothly even though I was not there to assist with last minute questions. Also, tracking down the cake that was delivered late was a lifesaver! You did a fantastic job guiding all of us, especially, keeping the secret of the surprise up to the last second.  Our friends and family had a great time and when we looked at some photos of them after the event, it just melted our hearts. Chef Carlisle Bannister did a fantastic job with the food for the event as well. I can’t tell you how many of our guests raved about all of his food…from the delicious oyster appetizers to the shrimp and grits in the main buffet…it was all delicious. Thank you again for your outstanding efforts on Saturday as we celebrated his special day with families and friends.  It was a truly memorable night for all of us.

“Our annual client referral event that we hold each year as an incentive for referrals is the pinnacle of our events.  Choosing Upper Shirley Vineyards was absolutely the right choice for us.  Catherine and her staff made planning for the event run smoothly and seem almost effortless.  The setting is idyllic and our clients marveled at the stunning sunset over the river. The food was simply amazing, from the appetizers to the main course to the fabulous crème brulee, all accented by perfect wine choices.  The attention before and during the event, from the owner, chef and staff, helped ensure the event surpassed my expectations.  Thanks to Upper Shirley Vineyards for a wonderful night.”
