Aurora Cellars Estate

The Estate is perfect for weddings and events for up to 300 guests and rests gently on two level acres consisting of a small barn, a charming three bedroom, two-bath Victorian farmhouse with a spacious patio, surrounded by black walnut trees. A majestic willow tree, with opulent branches quietly caress the grass alongside the pond creating an idyllic setting for a wedding ceremony. The vineyard runs parallel to the entire length of the Estate. Call or email today and discover how your event can become more than extraordinary!

“A perfect venue for my wedding day. We stayed at the back property and the entire weekend could not have been more seamless. Kristi was always checking in to make sure we had everything we needed at the farm house and the venue itself was well prepared and ready for guests. The entire experience, from choosing the venue to picking out wine, was easy thanks to their amazing communication. I wish I could re-live that weekend at Aurora over and over”.
