When the loved ones in your life reach special milestones, they deserve to be honored and celebrated. At Gideon Owen, let us help you turn life’s big moments into memorable experiences.
Our 150-year-old winery offers the whimsical charm, delicious flavors, and picture-perfect backdrop to celebrate any occasion. And our goal is to provide an outstanding experience to inspire, impress, and create lasting memories.
Engagements: After an unforgettable wedding proposal, gather your loved ones to celebrate in your joy. Pop open a bottle of our homemade wine, share the exciting news, and create new traditions with your soon-to-be-family.
Weddings: Our historic winery is a premier location on Lake Erie to plan an extraordinary wedding. With a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from, we have the flexibility to accommodate an intimate micro wedding or a grand reception for up to 180 guests. Share your first kiss as a married couple under the arch of our elegant underground cellar, host cocktail hour outdoors among the beautifully landscaped gardens, and dance the night away in our wonderfully renovated ballroom.
Anniversaries: Reserve a romantic, candlelit table for two in our cozy Chalet or plan a large-scale party to celebrate the long-lasting love of your parents or grandparents. Dine in for a tasty three-course meal paired with your favorite cocktail, wine, or brew.
Birthdays: Whether your loved one is turning 1 or 100, plan a meaningful birthday celebration on the rolling hills of our farmland. Gather friends and family outdoors around the flowers and serene waterfall to share memories and pictures from the past year.
Achievements in School: After months of studying and hard work, there’s nothing sweeter than graduating, passing the state boards, or obtaining a licensure. Celebrate your big achievement by splurging on a slice of Peanut Butter Pie or New York Style Cheesecake.
Baby Showers or Baptisms: Throughout the winery, we have several private rooms and spaces thoughtfully designed to make your day relaxing and one-of-a-kind. Sit back with a Sweet Sunrise mocktail or Pomegranate Spritzer and let our Event Team do all the work.
Work Celebrations: Show appreciation to your co-workers and team when a major milestone has been achieved together. Stop by our Triage Wine Bar and toast to a job well done or reserve our Vineyard Room to host a private dinner or luncheon. It’s the perfect way to surprise and show appreciation to your employees.
Job Promotions: All the hard work and dedication to your career should be celebrated and not go unnoticed. Whether you’re a nurse, teacher, or manufacturing professional, you’ve made an impact on the world. Celebrate your labor of love and passion with a unique experience.
Celebrations of Life: Gather for a special meal to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one who has passed away. Sharing stories over a meal together creates meaningful memories.
