Welcome to Aterno, a 33 acre working wine vineyard and luxurious vacation rental and wedding and private event property. When the wrought iron gates open, you are greeted with nine acres of lush merlot vines on your left. Twenty rolling acres of beautiful cabernet comprise the other two thirds of this estate. All of the fruit produced here is sold to local, high end labels.
Two homes sit on the property with architecture inspired by Tuscan landscape. Travel up the quarter mile long, gently winding driveway to the main house, lined with over seventy Cyprus trees, growing at least twenty feet tall. Take in the surrounding views of gorgeous green countryside and rich vineyard landscapes as you reach the top. A shorter driveway lined with stone fruit trees and fragrant rosemary separates the main house from the guest house, providing privacy for guests. Cyprus trees continue to surround the main home and guest house adding to the beauty and magnificence of this estate. The vineyard is steps away from the Villa, making this a unique and one of a kind experience for guests.
Begin your happily ever after here! Start your wedding weekend with a cocktail party in the fountain based courtyard. Sip on champagne and indulge in delicious hors d'oeuvres as you take in the endless views surrounding the estate. Connect with friends and family and get ready to celebrate this special weekend!
After finalizing the last details during rehearsal, enjoy your rehearsal dinner in the open concept dining room or enjoy the warm summer nights with a causal BBQ outside. Treat yourself to a glass of wine as you watch the sun set, or a little friendly competition with some lawn games as the night winds down.
The morning of your wedding, wake up relaxed and refreshed as the sun peaks over the horizon. Enjoy our spacious homes as you and your bridal party get ready for your big day! Meanwhile, let your team do the work to prepare the perfect space for your ceremony. Miles of Central Coast wine country create the most stunning backdrop to say your "I do's".
In the warm glow of the afternoon sunlight, guests mix and mingle, reconnecting and enjoying lively conversation as they sip on hand crafted cocktails and enjoy passed appetizers.
Dinner is served! Our kitchen is perfect for your caterers to prepare your first meal of marriage. Elegant plated cuisine amongst the vines or rustic family style dinners complimented with Central Coast wines - we can easily service whatever your heart's desire.
After dinner, it's time to really get this party started. Head to the courtyard and dance the night away as you share laughter and your best moves with your loved ones.
As the night winds down, gather your nearest and dearest and head back inside for a nightcap, or if you're not ready for the fun to end, continue with an after party in the bar area with some good company and a few card games. The party doesn't end until you've made this night yours!

The Aterno Estate boast rolling slopes, broad terraces and loamy soil with spots of calcareous rock create the ideal condition for good grapes here. Good fruit is also largely due to the Templeton Gap, which is defined by it’s cooler nights produced by the ocean breeze that is blown in through the gap in the ridge line.
