- Mignon McLaughlin

In the Years to Come
How many people can say they can repeatedly go back and visit the place they got married, and spend time there? That they can enjoy a meal or their favorite wine from their wedding day, on site? We guarantee if you ask around, not many.
The Folino Estate experience does not end the day your wedding ends. We are a full service Restaurant, Tasting Room, Vineyard, and Winery that is open year round. Folino Estate is a home for love, and inspires tradition. As a large, truly Italian Family, we know a thing or 2 about tradition, and the importance of keeping love alive no matter the years that go by.
We encourage all of our couples to spend their anniversaries with us, or simply come back to the place that began their new journey as a married couple. Dine in our Restaurant and enjoy the same meal that you had while sitting at the head of our beautifully rustic elegant ballroom watching your friends and family laugh and chat. Sip the same wine you sipped on as you danced the night away as husband and wife when visiting our Tasting Room, and even purchase bottles to take home. Reminisce about the best day of your lives as you walk the grounds and visit the places you took stunning photos, or watch the sunset over the vineyard from our patio.
Your destination Italian wedding does not require the expense of travel; it is right here in the heart of Kutztown, PA, and will always be here for you to celebrate your once in a lifetime day, whenever you choose to.
Don’t just take our word for it, check out testimony from some of our recent Folino Estate couples:
“Wedding planning can be daunting, but when it’s right, it’s right. Driving in from I-78, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when we crested the hill leading up to the entrance we were instantly blown away. Once on the immaculately manicured grounds, the attention to detail set Folino apart from anywhere else we’d seen. The beautiful stonework on the exterior, the tables and fountain in the piazza, and the arched ceiling resembling the inside of a barrel leading to the event space were just a few of the things that stood out. After a quick dinner and sampling a few world class wines, we were ready to book.
Planning went so smoothly. The near instant feedback made us feel like the most important couple in the world, and went a long way to curb any jitters. Every detail had been figured out for us well in advance and left us with nothing to worry about.
When our wedding day arrived, the staff surpassed our already high expectations. The constant personalized support from the moment the venue opened until the last guest departed was incredible. As the couple getting married, we were pulled in every direction, but the staff made sure that we did not miss a thing. A tray of appetizers was delivered to our head table along with drinks. Entrees were kept warm while we greeted family and friends. We had guests describe our wedding as “as perfect as a wedding from a movie”, and I can’t disagree. The closest thing to a hiccup that occurred on our special day was how quickly the guests consumed the first batch of wine slushies, but that went unnoticed as a second batch was immediately whipped up.
We cannot thank every member of the Folino Estate team enough. We look forward to many anniversary dinners in the restaurant. ”
