The possibilities are endless!

What Kind of Wine Tents Are Good Outdoors?
You’ll want to ensure your wine tent can hold up to harsh weather conditions, stay sturdy and in-tact all day long, and look great doing it. Here are our top recommendations for outdoor wine tents:
Frame tents offer spacious, unobstructed venue space for guests and easy setup and teardown for your event.These adaptable tents can be installed on various surfaces, whether it's securing them with stakes into the ground or using a tent ballasting system on hard surfaces where staking isn’t possible. We always recommend anchoring your event tent for extra protection against rain, wind and other outdoor use.
If you're considering keeping your wine tent set up for an extended duration, a west coast frame tent is an excellent choice. Featuring a robust frame that provides steadfast support to the tent top, frame tents are the a reliable option for long-term installations lasting several months.
If you're seeking a long-lasting and versatile frame-style wine tent, look no further than a keder tent. These innovative tents go beyond the traditional west coast frame tent, offering enhanced durability and adaptability. Experience the convenience of quick installation with minimal wear and tear on the vinyl. The unique keder system allows the vinyl to seamlessly slide into the frame, transforming your wine tent into a fortress that protects against water and weather.
Keder tents offer similar advantages to West Coast frame tents, such as flexible anchoring choices and being the ideal choice for long term use. In addition to that, the keder track system allows for an even quicker installation.
If you’re looking for an elegant tent that also has extra structure, a pole tent may be the perfect wine tent for your vineyard or winery. These tents feature a central pole and provide the structure and security you need to comfortably host an all-day (or multi-day) wine tasting or festival event. It's important to note that pole tents require anchoring with stakes, so ensure your setup location has a suitable surface such as grass, dirt, etc.
If you're hosting shorter-term events, the pole tent is an excellent choice. With its simplified construction, this tent option has fewer components than a frame tent, making it easier to set up, transport, and store.
A clear top tent is a perfect choice to provide your guests an extra special, unforgettable event venue by being able to see out of your wine tent and enjoy the gorgeous vineyard scenery around them. Drinking under the stars-- what could be better?
Clear Top Tents utilize the same sturdy frame as our traditional west coast frame tent, offering reliable support. Therefore, these tents also provide flexibility in anchoring options, allowing for the use of stakes or ballasts. However, it's important to note that clear tent tops are not as durable as the white tent tops, making these tents less suitable for long-term installations at vineyards.
Which Wine Tents Are Suitable for Winter Wine Tasting?
Yes, event tents can be used comfortably in winter! A wine tent, properly heated, can allow you to create a completely unique winter wonderland on your vineyard and host a winter winery event that will blow your guests away.
Keeping your guests warm is of the utmost importance when hosting an outdoor winter event. Here are some tents that make for great shelter at a winter wine tasting:
Not only are pagoda tents elegant and sophisticated in design, they feature keder walls that make it far easier to heat your wine tent from the start! You’ll love the style of our pagoda tents with stylish walls and an elegant high peak in the canvas, and your guests will love sipping wine from the comfort of your wine tent while the snow falls outside.
Pop-up tents are a great way to create a spread-out, multi-section venue for your event. Set up a few pop-up tents and create a different wine tasting experience in each, or simply have a few pop-up tents at a larger outdoor venue for guests to warm up and relax with a glass of wine before heading back out into the cold.
- Don’t Forget Sidewalls!
Sidewalls can help turn almost any event tent into a proper winter wine tent. They are simple to add to any tent and come in a variety of styles to perfectly match the aesthetic of your vineyard tent.
