Love Is in the Air
(Leave the rest to us)
At Upper Shirley Vineyards, we supply everything couples need to plan the most memorable day of their lives.
History – neighboring farms and manor homes older than America
Setting – sweeping lawns perched above the James River
Food – lovingly prepared by veteran chef and wedding caterer Carlisle Bannister
Wine – made from our very own hand-cultivated grapes
Couples may wed on our waterfront ceremony lawn or inside our 14,000 square-foot Low Country winery, host large receptions for up to 300 guests and reserve in-house catering and professional service.
We offer exclusive use of our event spaces, including a bridal suite and groom’s den, ceremony lawn, stone patios, covered verandas, tasting room and banquet room.
Our in-house catering team is one of Virginia’s best. Executive Chef Carlisle Bannister, a fourth-generation restaurateur, has been directing high-end wedding catering in and around Richmond for the past 20 years. Chef Carlisle and his banquet captains, professional wait staff and bartenders work tirelessly to create seasonal menus and dishes that capture the spirit and significance of your special day.
Only 21 miles from downtown Richmond, Upper Shirley Vineyards offers bucolic serenity with easy access to top-tier accommodations in Virginia’s capital city.
