Almost all of my wine country brides choose to stay at the comfortably chic wine country Hotel Corque.  Fresh, inspired and centrally located to all of wine country’s event venues and sites, this hotel boasts all the amenities of a world-class resort with the intimate charm and warm personality of service staff who make you feel at home.

But what few know is that Hotel Corque and its restaurant, Root 246– founded by celebrity chef Bradley Ogden, offer a fantastic special event venue options as well.  While the hotel does have a ballroom for larger scale receptions that is fantastic, Root 246 offers up a great opportunity for wedding-related events.  All wine country venues have a mandated end time of 10:00pm.  Some 11:00pm.  One of the biggest questions I get asked by my brides is “but where can we go if we want to continue our celebration late into the night?”  Perfect answer: Hotel Corque’s Root 246.  Most wine country weddings are rustically elegant and involve being outdoors all day.  Adjourning guests into a swanky “club” feel for late night snacks and drinks into the wee hours of the morning is a fantastic option.  Rehearsal Dinners, Farewell (Post-Nuptial) Brunches , Bridesmaids luncheons are other wedding-related fabulous event options for this wine country location.  Or conversely, many choose to host their rehearsal dinner or brunch at a winery for the vineyard experience and book their wedding reception with Hotel Corque.

I could go on and on about the food and wine experience at this location.  From the freshest organic ingredients, Chef Ogden’s cuisine is art with heart and soul.

At Hotel Corque, your event manager will meet with you and see your event through from planning stages until the end.  They will also coordinate room blocks for you and your guests.  Rarely do you see this in today’s hospitality industry – having one person to handle all your needs.  And the event planner at Hotel Corque has 20 years experience in event planning – and in particular our wine country.  She has been known to act as concierge to all her clients, providing them with invaluable tips on how to maximize their visit to wine country.
