    Ooohh at a winery you can't beat rustic Italian dishes;

    Perhaps a ravioli station; meat, cheese, mushroom ravioli...choice of red or parmesan sauce.  

    Braised veal shank carving station served over sun-dried tomato polenta.  

    Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomato with balsamic reduction. 

    Anti-pasti spread on a table with various meats, cheeses, marinaded olives, etc. 

    I could go on and on...

    OP: we have really similar avatars.

    I like the italian food idea for a wine wedding.  I don't think of hamburger sliders and pulled pork when i think of rustic/historic winery :/  I don't think they're bad food ideas (i <3 the mac and cheese balls!) but if your looking for something that goes at a winery wedding, i think italian goes much better.  you could do some mediteranean food in there too with italian... bruschetta, olives, hummus and pita, grilled eggplant,  fried raviolis, cheeses and crackers, etc.

    keeping in theme, consider a pairing with what wines you are serving.  Peppery red wines are excellent with beef and red meat.  Dry and briney white wine with a fish option.  Whatever you pick, consider writing your menu cards with a pairing idea from the vineyard.  Also fondues and cheese based dishes are amazing with good wine.
