Welcome to Black Oak, the Newest Private Estate Wedding Venue in California


Private. Secluded. Opulent. Even a little outrageous.

Welcome to Black Oak Mountain Vineyards. If you’re here, it’s because you’re searching for a private estate wedding venue…one that takes your breath away. Because, like us, you value your privacy and solitude and don’t want wine tasters or strangers intruding on your wedding 😉 (& yes, it happens all the time at hotels & wineries). You’re also seeking a venue that will WOW your guests and leave you with a destination wedding experience that you won’t ever forget.

Black Oak Mountain Vineyards is STUNNING! Once you see this venue, you can’t unsee it; every square inch of this place is gorgeous. There is no other venue to book your wedding in this area that even comes close to comparison. This place is beautiful, and the people working here are wonderful. Jane communicates excellently and is with you 100% of the way, and she has an amazing team behind her. The wonderful staff ensures everything is how you imagined on your special day. I would recommend Black Oak Mountain Vineyards to anyone in a heartbeat and without hesitation! Thank you, BOMV! We had the most amazing day!

The Black Oak Vineyard Club

Napa, without the price or attitude. 🔥 No stuffy ballroom vibes here.

The package includes both the Villa and Vineyard Club. Your celebration will be “progressive,” transitioning from the panoramic Ceremony Hill, to the Estate Terrace for cocktail hour, and concluding at the Black Oak Vineyard Club for the Reception and an incredible celebration. Nestled among the vineyards, The Black Oak Vineyard Club stands out as the ultimate party venue. With its moody interiors and seductive lounge/speakeasy vibe, it offers games, fire pits, and swaying basket swings. Refer to it as the AFTER HOURS lounge. Festivities can extend late into the night.

4 Ceremony Spaces

Our private estate features four ceremony sites and outdoor wedding venues to say I Do, plus a rain backup plan. These include the 360° Edge of the World Site, Viewing Deck at the Villa, Grand Oak Tree, and Meadow Hitching site. Most couples choose the 360° Site or the Viewing Deck. It’s really hard to choose just one, though.

Infinite Love (2 Night Package)

Reviewed by Magean Q

We chose to go with the 3-day wedding package at this venue, and that was the absolute best decision we could have made for one of the best wedding experiences. We had our wedding on a Thursday, which saved some money. The whole experience was amazing and seamless. The venue itself is breathtaking, clean, and very well-polished. We loved hosting our “Welcome Dinner/Rehearsal” at the venue the night before and then being able to wake up and get ready for the wedding day without having to stress about getting there on time since we were already on site. The staff at BOMV is very accommodating and flexible. We booked our wedding date 16 months ago, and Jane quickly responded to my emails. Multiple guests say this was the best wedding they have ever attended. We could not recommend BOMV enough. DO IT!!!

What is the backup plan for inclement weather?

  • We have two indoor spaces that we can move to in case of inclement weather. You don’t need to worry about the weather for your wedding day; take things as they come day by day, and if we need to switch at the last minute, we can do so. Usually, rain clears up quickly, so you can keep celebrating outside if you want.

What makes Black Oak unique compared to other private estate home venues in California?

  • There is nothing quite like Black Oak. Desert, sustainable landscaping in Northern California, with onsite lodging designed by a highly-awarded architect and interior designer. The Vineyard Club isn’t your typical boring reception space. It feels warm and inviting, not boring or stuffy. Plus, you can have a 9-10 hour wedding, not the usually 5-6 hours that most venues provide.
