BHV&W requires that the rental of all items, including china, crystal, tableware, and chargers, linens, toppers, sashes, chair covers, etc., be done from or through the Winery. This ensures the high quality of these items and prevents a breakdown in communications or delivery mishaps on the part of another rental agency unknown by BHV&W . The proprietors recommended have all supported events previously held at the winery. Some china, flatware, crystal, chargers and coffee mugs can be rented from BHV&W on a per person basis. Please discuss rental rates on all other items with our Event Planner/Coordinator.
BHV&W is licensed by the State of Missouri to serve and sell (cash bar) alcoholic beverages (beer and wine). All alcoholic beverages served or sold on facility property must be dispensed by the Staff of BHV&W. Laws of the State of Missouri apply. Our bartenders will be at least 21 years of age and be appropriately dressed for the occasion.
Guests under the age of 21 will not be served alcoholic beverages and may be carded during the event. Care will be exercised not to
serve alcohol to anyone who has exceeded his or her limit of alcohol. The service of alcohol will be discontinued at least 59 minutes before the planned conclusion of the event.
The fee for the service (bartenders) of alcohol is not provided in the rental pricing. The fee will be determined and agreed upon separately between the client and BHV&W. A separate contract will be signed for the alcohol (beer and wine) service.
Many clear and cloudy days are the normal weather forecast in the St. Louis area. Even if a shower is forecast, it doesn’t stay and disappears as fast as it came. However, if the decision is to have a tent provided, there are several that have to be considered as the market has produced both open air and air/heated conditioned facilities. These tents seat up to 200 – 500+ and are easily erected within two hours. A separate contract will be signed for the rental of the tent.

- Monday – Thursday: Full Venue range from $2,500 and up.
