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.
