Keswick Vineyards Weddings: Top Notch Vineyard Experience on a Historic Estate

Keswick Vineyards weddings are unforgettable. With rolling hills on one side and the historic Edgewood Estate House and ornate white fountain on the other, I find Keswick Vineyards to be one of the most beautiful backdrops for wedding photographs in the Charlottesville area. With multiple ceremony location options, beautiful getting ready suites in the mansion, and accommodations for up to 200 guests in their elegant Aurora sailcloth tent, this place is sure to please. One of the special things about Keswick Vineyards is that their wedding venue space is separate from their tasting room, so you can enjoy the property in complete privacy on your wedding day. Couples have also shared that owners Cindy and Al Schoernberg treat them like family. With this blend of natural beauty, exclusive property use, and award-winning wines, Keswick Vineyards is the perfect spot for your wedding day!

Brief History

The land of Keswick Vineyards has a rich history that dates back to the 1700s. It is located in Virginia Wine Country at the historic Edgewood Estate close to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The nearby Southwest Mountains are home to the presidential estates of James Monroe and James Madison as well. 

The current owners Cindy & Al Schornberg purchased it in 2000 to create a family-owned and operated winery. By 2002, Keswick produced a wine that won “Best White Wine in America,” and in 2009, their 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon won another award. It’s been a long list of awards since then, right up to 2023, where Keswick’s 2019 Cabernet Franc and “Trevillian Red” and five other wines won awards.
