Chic, curated, expertly crafted...these are just a few of the words District Winery uses to describe its wedding services, and they couldn’t be more true. Newly constructed and housed inside The Yards overlooking the Anacostia River, District Winery is one of the brightest stars among wedding sites in Washington, D.C., which comes as no surprise given the attention to detail that has been put into the space and its offerings. With a cool, midcentury modern vibe and views into its production space and barrel room, District Winery is a special venue that will have wedding guests talking. The owners have thoughtfully planned everything from the servingware and furnishings - which include custom-made tables - and place a tremendous emphasis on fresh, seasonal cuisine, directed by its in-house executive chef.
One of the best parts of District Winery is the distinctiveness of its event locations. Wedding couples have the option of enjoying an outdoor ceremony on the second-floor terrace, which features a gorgeous “green roof” and unobstructed river views, as well as a retractable canopy with side walls. The terrace is also a prime spot for cocktails, as is the mezzanine inside. The private events room offers panoramic windows and a beautiful rustic design scheme, and seats 200 guests while still maintaining an intimate ambience. The icing on the cake is District Winery’s convenient location in DC’s Navy Yard, just a five-minute walk from the Metro and easily accessible by car, with nearby parking readily available.
Location: 385 Water St SE, Washington, DC 20003.
