We just had our wedding last night, and booked it last August. We knew we wanted to get married here 3 years ago, when we first discovered it! Everyone is so friendly, helpful and kind and they want your day to be just as wonderful as you do! We had a beautiful day and gorgeous views!! The big house is an amazing part of getting married at big cork too. I would say to make sure you rent it for the whole weekend! We had our rehearsal dinner at the big house, got ready there the next day, and then got to stay there after our wedding. It was the best decision, I am so glad this is where we chose to get married!!!

We stumbled upon Big Cork shortly after getting engaged - more as a quick stop to check out a vineyard rather than a venue. A year to the day later, we held our wedding there and it was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire process. We'd looked at a few other vineyards in the area that had a lot of build up on wedding websites but they all felt so stale and manufactured. This is so not the case with Big Cork and we knew it as soon as we walked into the building. First of all, the staff at Big Cork is incredible. They know their venue inside and out and work closely with you to make sure you maximize its capabilities. Tina, their events manager, worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we had a perfect day and she succeeded. Second, if you're looking for a place that will blow your guests' minds with the view, this is it. Between the mountains and the vines and the wide open spaces, our guests have told us over and over again that it was the most beautiful venue they've ever been to for a wedding. And, as it just so happens, the wine is great as well. It is a bit of a blank slate because, as they'll tell you, they're a vineyard first and a venue second, but that just adds to the fun you'll have creating your own perfect day. It's so so worth it.

I booked Big Cork for my sister's surprise engagement party and everything was perfect. Tina and the entire staff were so accommodating. I highly recommend them for any special event!

My husband and I are extremely grateful to have spent a couple of days at the Big House on the property after our wedding. As we waited for Tina to come and meet us in the tasting room, I picked up a few gifts for family and sparkling water to take to the house. The tasting room is beautiful, so modern with STYLE. We followed her Tina to the house and our hearts melted as we walked through it, Tina showing us where everything is and how it works. She was very warm and welcoming, letting us know she lives close if we needed anything. The house is immaculate. I was told in advance of all the things we could do in the area during our stay but we didnt want to leave! We relaxed in EVERY living room drinking coffee and went to bed each night in an amazing bed to the warmth of the fireplace. Every detail is perfect. The furniture, paint, towels, shower, etc. I especially love all of the hand picked art. The house could comfortably hold a large family and is perfect for weddings. The pictures online are great but you don't get a real idea of the size of the house until you're in it. It's perfect!

We recently booked Big Cork for our wedding and reception! The grounds and facility are beautiful- the perfect mix of rustic elegance and modern convenience. The food is amazing (farm to fork and of your choosing!). Another major plus is that you don't have to purchase a case of wine for your wedding- it's simply by the bottle! This was helpful for us since so many of our family members over 21 do not drink. Go see it! We worked with Jay, who was incredible, but unfortunately is not there anymore. I'll write another review AFTER we get married next October!

Big Cork is absolutely stunning. I remember looking at 20+ venues in the MD/VA area and there was absolutely nothing I liked. After stumbling across Big Cork, I was hooked the moment I entered. Big Cork itself is a really cool blend of a modern hip building in an insanely beautiful and historic part of western MD. We immediately booked Big Cork as our reception venue. Amy and Tina are great to work with, and know what they are doing in terms of event planning. I felt very comfortable leaving everything in their hands. The day of the wedding, Amy and Tina were extremely accommodating with everything we needed. We have some insane adverse weather on the day of our wedding, and Amy went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. She even let us have the venue for a longer period of time since our cocktail hour was rained out. They made sure everything went perfectly day of, and worked hard behind the scenes. Having the Big House was also a big plus, we took beautiful getting ready photos there, and had breakfast and lunch there the day of. It was a beautiful wedding! I highly recommend!

The day before our wedding we took a group of 40 family and friends here for a tasting and I cannot say enough good things! The wine is delicious, the scenery is gorgeous, and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome!

So my husband and I weren't actually supposed to have BIG Cork as our venue. But six weeks before our wedding, our original venue told us that, due to some unforeseen issues, they'd be unable to host our reception. Frantic and upset, my mother and I started calling venues - and fortunately, we found BIG Cork. Looking back, I couldn’t be happier. The two event coordinators at BIG Cork, Amy and Tina, did an AMAZING job! From the moment we booked with them, they were sending check-in emails and arranging phone calls. I even gave them a ton of decorations to set up and they handled everything perfectly. I really can’t say enough about this venue, from its breathtaking views of the mountains in western Maryland to the modern and classy tasting room. Additionally, I highly recommend booking the BIG House, which is situated on the property next to the vineyard. The house fit the majority of our bridal party very comfortably, and the place is gorgeous. Given everything my husband and I went through, we really lucked out and feel that BIG Cork gave us everything we'd hoped for and more.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience having our wedding at Big Cork Vineyard! We were one of the first weddings that they hosted, and the entire staff could not have been better to work with. Jay and his team were not only professional but their overall attitude was inspiring. They were always flexible, offered many suggestions and ideas and always went the extra mile to ensure that every detail was planned and executed perfectly. The vineyard itself is stunning but to be able to have our wedding there and work with such fun and professional people took our event to another level. I would recommend Big Cork Vineyard to anyone looking for a wedding venue, and wish that I could do it all again!

This place is so different from the typical winery venue & is not this rustic barn. Instead BigCork has a modern tasting room with beautiful rolling hills of vines as the background. The first time we went to BigCork was on an invite from the event coordinator, Jay, after we inquired about our wedding being hosted there. Jay toured us around the venue & served us a complimentary lunch. We knew immediately we wanted BigCork to be the place where we said I do. We booked our date more than a year in advance but even with early planning, we had a few hiccups. The first was that the original event coordinator, Jay, left BigCork & a new coordinator was put in place – the problem was that all of this happened & we were not made aware of the change until weeks later. Along with that change, BigCork decided to not offer catering services anymore. This was a huge blow for us because having a venue that also could provide catering was one of the things that we had looked for. Our original contract was only for the venue, & we had planned to do a separate contract for catering. Ultimately, going outside for our caterer worked out for the best, but at the time it felt like a huge blow. Once Jay left, we started working with the current coordinators, Amy & Tina. As our wedding day got closer, Tina worked very close with us to make sure everything turned out perfect. She was very responsive & answered all of our little questions. On the actual wedding day, she got all of the other vendors coordinated into place & it turned out beautifully. She went above & beyond to really make it a seamless process on the wedding day & that’s what really mattered. Initially, we felt that BigCork was going through some growing pains in the first years of operation. Now they seem to be in a great stride & Tina & Amy are really making everything work. We loved the atmosphere created at our wedding & with such a beautiful backdrop, you cannot go wrong booking BigCork. Plus, the wine is amazing!
