Private Event Buyout

Thank you for considering Bannister Wine’s Geyserville Vault for your upcoming event! Your buy-out for our beautiful Tasting Room and Patio means it’s closed to the public and open exclusively for you and your guests.



Our buy-out requirement consists of a rental fee coupled with a minimum wine purchase. The wine is selected before your event, purchased at retail price (wine club members can apply their discount), and does not have to be entirely consumed during the event.

If there is anything left over, it’s yours to take home with you. Additional wine can be purchased on site if your wine needs exceed your minimum purchase.


Rental Fee Monday – Thursday: $1500 Minimum Wine Purchase: $700

Rental fee on Friday or Sunday: $2500 Minimum Wine Purchase: $1000

Rental fee on Saturday: $3500 Minimum Wine Purchase: $1500

A la Carte options:

  • Bannister Sommelier/wine educator for your event: $350
  • Flower arrangements by M E Moore Design. Please ask for quote
  • Cleaning Fee for all rentals: $100 FEE for a three-hour event (total buy-out time is 4 hours, which includes 30 minutes for set-up and 30 minutes for clean-up).


We require a $1000 deposit to hold the space, which will be applied to the rental fee.
Event can be canceled with no penalty up to 30 days before the event. A cancellation within 30 days of the event renders the deposit non-refundable.

Damage to Bannister Wine’s property that occurs during the event will be paid for or replaced by the Renter. Maximum capacity is 60 people.
We have one, unisex ADA accessible bathroom.

We have amazing restaurants/caterers on either side of us who can provide food for your event. Happy to connect you with them.

We do not provide cutlery, plate-ware or napkins for any food brought in.

Yes – feel free to play your own Spotify playlist, or you can have access to our Tasting Room playlists, put together by Brook and Duncan.
