We’re kicking February off introducing Living Roots Wine & Co. to the Buffalo & Rochester Indie Wedding tribe! Living Roots is a young urban winery in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York and a not-so-urban winery in the Adelaide Hills. Husband and wife duo Sebastian, a South Australia native and Colleen, a Rochester native opened in 2017 wanting to chase their dreams. Introducing Living Roots Wine & Co to our tribe is perfect for those who want an intimate feel to their wedding.
After working for several years in their respective fields of winemaking and marketing, the couple created and executed a business plan that allowed them to hop between their native hemispheres, making both cool and warm climate wines. The change also allowed them to share with family and friends in America and Australia. This was the ultimate opportunity to bring something new to the Rochester wine scene.
Hardy, the intercontinental label pays homage to family heritage while branching out to new places, styles and techniques. Living Roots sources grapes from different vineyards and growers, highlighting the natural strengths of each variety and climate through their wines from vastly different corners of the globe: the Finger Lakes and the regions surrounding Adelaide. Avid wine drinkers are going to love this place!
The private event space – The Vault – is a converted 1s vault that can accommodate up to 32 guests for a seated event, and up to 40 guests for a standing ‘cocktail hour’ style function. We can already hear the glasses clinking, speeches and mixed chatter from the wedding guests. The large windows with views into the urban winery and features like Living Roots’ live plant wall add a natural ambience. These features make this intimate space perfect for weddings, showers, ceremonies, engagement photos, showers and rehearsal dinners.
There’s a rustic romance between the earth tones and open brick that’ll attract you.
The Vault bar is stocked with all of the wines by the glass, rotating local beers and non-alcoholic beverages, giving guests the chance to wet their palettes. The bar is staffed by a Living Roots employee with intimate knowledge of the products who can provide tastings and help guide guests with their infinite product knowledge. The winery can tailor the experience to your needs and can offer anything from a private wine education class to kicking off an event with a private tasting and tour to get an in-depth experience of our story and products.
Weddings and events don’t have to be huge to be memorable, but every detail should matter and DOES matter. At this intimate venue, this duo focuses on the little things for you, providing a warm inviting atmosphere, and of course, beautiful food and wines. Every detail is taken into consideration.
