Event Venues

District Winery a boutique urban winery set in the heart of The Yards, a bustling community in DC's Navy Yard along the Anacostia River. An ideal venue for weddings up to 200 guests, every aspect of the winery’s interior design is meticulously curated to infuse their space with a romantic ambience. This unique wedding venue also provides guests with a view into their production space and barrel room, where they age the boutique wine produced on-site. A huge selling point for this venue is that their team personally selects all wedding accoutrements, including dishware, glass candle holders, linens, and flatware. They also have standard custom-made tables and chairs.
