Vendor Spotlight: Brix Restaurant, Napa, CA

Brix Restaurant (Napa, CA)

Brix may be a restaurant, but when it comes to hosting the quintessential Napa wedding, it goes far beyond typical. Matt Guyot of Brix’s Special Events Department shared his story with me: “My predecessors didn’t host a lot of weddings because of the work involved, but while I was the General Manager, I held my wedding here. We have a photo on our end table and it's the first thing I see when I enter our house and the last thing I see when I leave for work. It is a photo of us on the happiest day of our lives with this amazing backdrop at Brix.”

When Matt eventually moved into the Special Events Department, he realized that the amazing backdrop should also be sitting on other lucky couples’ end tables – not just his. So he began offering weddings in 2009 and since then, there are over 50+ houses decorated with lifetime memories of weddings at Brix.

Brix opened in 1996 and sits atop 16 acres of gorgeous property. It is surrounded by 12 acres of Cabernet vineyards from which its owners make the Kelleher Family Estate Wines. Brix also features its own greenhouse and over 30 raised vegetable and herb beds. Their garden is used year-round due to the dreamy climate. And most of all, Brix utilizes the farm-to-table philosophy as Executive Chef, Anne Gingrass-Paik, has created many relationships with local farmers.

Perfect for weddings, rehearsal and welcome dinners, Brix is beyond unique and versatile when it comes to venues. Aside from the gardens and vineyards (great ceremony site), with the wine train that runs along the back of the property, geese and ducks flying into their ponds, and the perfect sunset behind the Mayacaymus Mountains, this venue can’t be beat. Brix also offers a unique Sunday brunch buffet: the perfect way to bid adieu before heading off to SFO for your honeymoon.


  1. Matt and Brix hosted our wedding this past summer and absolutely everything about the venue, staff and food/wine was perfect! Matt and the staff went above and beyond what was necessary to make this evening the greatest day of our lives. Every single one of our guests remarked that it was one of (if not THE best)wedding events they had ever attended. Matt made every step of the process for us enjoyable and stress-free... CHEERS to Brix! Steve and Laura

  2. I have to agree, Matt and Brix provided us with the most amazing wedding this past September, and we can't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. All of our guests said the same thing, that it was just an absolutely wonderful venue and wedding.
