Many bonuses are included with our rental fee. We will continue to add more to the list, but at this time we will provide this incredible list of benefits.

What dates are available?

Check out our calendar to see what open dates are still available. Or email us to inquire.

How do I reserve a date?

A date is reserved when a signed contract with a deposit is received by Brix and Columns Vineyards.

What is the rental time for an event?

The rental is from 10 am to 10 pm the day of the event with cleanup and all guests off the property by 11 pm. If you require access the day before, then we are happy to provide the option of renting the day before as well. There is a discount for clients that rent for several days. Many families enjoy this option as it allows for more preparation time. Some clients have a rehearsal dinner as well here at Brix and Columns Vineyards. Depending on size of party, the rehearsal dinner may be outside and at times inside of the home for smaller groups.

Can I have the ceremony at the site as well?

Many of our couples have both the ceremony and the reception here.

You need to provide event insurance, damage deposit (refundable), VA ABC Banquet license and if you require other rental items such as additional tents these would be the client’s responsibility. Additional needs may result in additional charges. Just ask.

Who will be responsible for chair and table setup?

Our staff will be glad to setup chairs for ceremony and chairs and tables for reception. We must know of any special requirements prior to the day of the ceremony.

When can vendors begin setting up?

Vendors can begin set up as soon as the site is available to you which is 10 am the day of the event.

What sizes are your tables?
