THE GRAND MARQUEE Elegantly appointed beside established vineyards and adjacent to the The Convent, the Grand Marquee provides a unique wedding space for up to 120 guests. The traditional French-designed white marquee allows various seating arrangements and provides for the opening of the side walls to enjoy the region’s beautiful spring and summer evenings. Guests of a wedding held here will be truly romanced by a country sky full of stars, come nightfall.
