Our suggestion is located in the pretty little city of Laurel Springs, NC located in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains, in the Northwest corner of the state.

Laurel Springs, NC 28644
Phone: 800-233-1505

But aside from the great wines and the friendly owners and staff, being located in an area of the state that’s full of luscious roaming valleys, the landscape surrounding Thistle Meadow Winery is very picturesque, a great setting for an outdoor wedding venue. There’s a meadow right next door to the facility where the weddings are held outdoors.

Overlooked by many soon to be Married Couples

As we said at the beginning, Thistle Meadow Winery is the most well known place in the area for weddings but this doesn’t mean many haven’t been satisfied with the services provided.

The most likely reason this is not a well known venue is because they don’t advertise themselves as providing this function. Even if you visit their website you will have to hunt for any mention of wedding services. You will find mention at the very, very bottom of the page, the last sentence.

So if you are interested in learning more about what they can provide you (since there’s not a lot of information supplied on their website) your best option is either to email directly with your inquiry at: or talk over the phone or in person:

Where is the best place for a winery wedding near Winston-Salem, NC?

As far as we know there aren’t actually wineries or vineyards located inside the city of Winston-Salem NC that provide wedding services.

But there are a whole host of different choices near the city. One of these choices and many people consider this the absolute best is Childress Vineyards located just south in Lexington, NC. So we would like to provide you with a little information about the wedding services offered here.

However, if you decide Childress doesn’t match your needs then you may also want to look at the many different vineyards and wineries located just west of Winston-Salem in the Yadkin Valley wine region.

If you have visited their website looking for information on wedding services it can be hard to find. Actually, it may be impossible, we are not sure if they even have a page dedicated to describing their weddings but hopefully the information below will be helpful. And if interest we have a more generalized review about the vineyard.

What are the Prices? The first thing you need to know is this will probably be one of the most expensive places to hold your wedding. But for good reason. Its beautiful, the staff, food and wines are all excellent and it’s a huge facility that’s in high demand not only for weddings but also for private parties and many other types of functions.

Other factors that will effect the price will be what areas of the winery you will want to rent out. The number of people at your event and the numbers of hours you plan on using the facility.

  • Garden
  • Patio
  • Banquet Room
  • Barrel Cave
  • Barrel Room
  • Conference Room
  • Vineyard Setting

The best way to find accurate information on the pricing is to give them a call: (336) 236-9463. Be sure to ask about all the different options to see how the prices differ.

Services:  rehearsal dinner, wedding services and reception. These will also effect the price.

This is definitely a picture perfect place to hold your special day. The vineyards are huge and beautiful and the inside provides an rustic old world feel. Definitely a very sought after venue.
