Campovida is a stunningly romantic and newly opened wine country wedding venue. Located in Hopland, a small countryside town, it’s between the border of Mendocino and Sonoma counties and is a perfect spot for destination weddings. Campovida offers thirteen acres of biodynamic certified organic gardens and a working vineyard. Most ceremonies are held under a cathedral-like grape arbor with cocktail hour in the herb and butterfly gardens. Their wisteria arbor is complete with a working fountain, surrounded by white bouquet roses, tall cypress and valley oaks tress and is where a reception can easily take place. Vineyards encircle the property and the sense of rustic romance is undeniable.
This is how Campovida describes their thoughts on welcoming weddings:
“Thoughtful times require a thoughtful place. We believe that a wedding should be designed as a rich experience, filled with conversations, connection and time to build those deep and lasting memories. Campovida calls you to create lifelong promises with the importance and beauty of a wedding ritual. It is the beginning of your new journey together.”
It’s ideal for an intimate destination wedding with ten cozy guest rooms, pool, beautiful event center and a wine tasting room on the property. Campovida will undoubtedly evoke a bride and grooms vision of a quintessential wine country wedding.
