2014 Testimonials

From  Beautiful location and friendly staff!    posted 11/6/2014

I planned my wedding from a distance. I live in Chicago, but my husband and I decided that in order to make it more convenient for our families and to cut down on costs (a little) we would find a location near our hometown of Terre Haute, IN. Marshall, IL is just 40 minutes away, and after a drive through the middle of nowhere it seems you come across this beautiful location. In mid-October, the trees surrounding the grounds were all changing colors. The ground had dried from the previous day’s rain, so we were able to set up our ceremony outside, and then come in from the chilly weather for the reception. The hall itself is a rustic knotty pine and is spacious. We used their fireplace as a backdrop for the head table with a small dance floor in front. We had more than enough tables and chairs that are included with the rental price. The wine is great, and they are very helpful if you would like a type of liquor that is typically not on their menu. Sonya is very helpful, and I am forever indebted to her since most of our correspondence was through email. If you are looking to get married in the Southern Indiana/Southern Illinois area (or even if you just want to try some decent wine), I highly recommend Castle Finn Winery!


2013 Testimonials

Wow. First off the hall is beautiful. Your staff is wonderful. They were amazing and did a wonderful job. They made the evening stress free. You and your family made the wedding from the booking to the end of the night of the wedding seem so easy. Thank you so mush for allowing us to buy glasses from your winery, everyone loved them and they are so nice. I am really glad we had the wedding there. It was perfect. Again thank you. When our other daughter decides to marry we are hoping to book the hall again. Everyone that had your wines loved them, I myself loved the castle finn white. . Again thank you for making the day great for all of us. Sincerely Sherry


2012 Testimonials

Dear Castle Finn Winery –

Just a Monday morning touch point to tell you that our Corvette club truly enjoyed our stop, and for most in the group, their discovery, of your charming winery. Your accommodations are wonderful, but the spirit of relaxed hospitality with refreshing libations was a perfect, late afternoon treat during our day-long cruise.


On behalf of the Rolling Prairie Corvette Club – Thank you!

Carol Tyler


The baby shower we held recently at Castle Finn Winery was a huge success and due in large part to your beautiful banquet hall.  Everyone loved the wine and the atmosphere which several described as “classy.”  Although we stayed inside, the outside fire pit and patio looked so inviting and just the place to be on sunny fall days or crisp fall evenings.  Castle Finn would be the perfect venue for a wedding reception or other large gathering.   Thanks so much for working with us and making the occasion that much more special!  You couldn’t have been more gracious or supportive.
