Private Events

Welcome to the Brander Vineyard – one of the original vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley and producer of world-class Sauvignon Blanc wines in a variety of styles, as well as small quantities of hand-crafted Bordeaux-style red wines. The success of your event is very important to us. Please review the location specifics and agreement carefully.



Brander Vineyard is a site-only operation for events. It is the responsibility of the Host to provide all food and rentals through an outside caterer. Guest arrival for a wedding is no earlier than 5:00p.m. and events can be held any day of the week. Set-up can begin after noon, or as determined in advance by management.


Seated- 90 maximum
Cocktail reception- 125 maximum

Please call the office at 805.688.2455 or email to request a catering packet.

Brander wines are served exclusively. Caterers with appropriate licensing may provide beer for your guests. All licensing must be faxed to Brander Vineyard prior to event. Caterer is responsible for providing all non-alcoholic beverages.



For wedding ceremony and receptions held on property, Brander Vineyard requires the use of a wedding coordinator.  Coordinator services are not included in the site fee, but are required for weddings held on property. Coordinators are not necessary for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions only. Courtyard Shot
