Redwood Retreat at Fernwood Cellars

Monterey/Carmel Valley



Create a wedding celebration that whisks you and your guests away to an intimate setting nestled in a canyon at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Located just outside of Gilroy, Redwood Retreat at Fernwood Cellars offers a truly rustic experience. Speak your vows surrounded by the purity of Little Arthur Creek, next to ancient redwoods, and might oaks. The historic estate has remained family owned and operated for five generations. Originating as a metaphysical resort popular in the 1800’s, after a few transformations, happy couples can now invite anywhere from 50 to 200 guests to witness and celebrate their vow exchange surrounded by nature and our own vineyards from which your guests will enjoy wine celebrating your wedding.
