Share our beautiful vineyard for your special day. In the calm surrounds of the Opihi Valley we have created a quiet haven.

Wedding Ceremony Venue

In the serene Opihi Valley we have the most stunning setting for your big day. We believe that the venue sets the tone for any wedding and the vineyard and historic Clifton Cottage offer a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony. We are the perfect place to start your married life and photo opportunities abound.

Located 30 minutes West of Timaru in the lee of the Two Thumb Range the vineyard is nestled in a limestone valley providing perfect growing conditions for grapes.

Sweeping lawns, a tree lined driveway and numerous sites for your ceremony offer all you could wish for in a wedding venue. Hear the birdsong in our Woodland wedding area or gaze at the rows of vines from our Avenue of Trees setting, the choice is yours.

We have a fantastic outdoor bar and stunning patio area with an outdoor fireplace. We have many props to enhance your day  including wine barrels, a rustic drinks barrow and vintage games for the front lawn.

We will organise canapes or platters for your after ceremony drinks and whilst we do not have receptions onsite we can assist with suggesting options that might work well as we have numerous contacts in the local area.

Enquire now for pricing on our contact page or email for your appointment.

Private Functions

Small, intimate functions are our specialty and our team will  create a magical setting on our patio in front of the outdoor fireplace or in our large conservatory. Sit under the stars by candlelight and all you will hear is the murmur of the Opihi River or the haunting call of owls in our woodland.

We will create a fantastic menu option to suit your requirements from cocktails and canapes through to a gourmet tasting buffet, our food choices will exceed your expectations. We pride ourselves on locally sourced, slow food; prepared to our exacting standards with simple country flavours.

We can help organise transportation to make sure everyone gets home safe, a drinks selection to meet your groups needs and guarantee an experience that will not soon be forgotten.
