Opihi Vineyard Wedding and Function Centre

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

Wedding 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 any occasion. 

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 work with a professional team who offer delicious menu options, marquee setup and accessories you may need. We have many props to hire including wine barrels, a rustic drinks barrow and a quirky ice cream kiosk.

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 Opihi River or the call of an owl.

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 slow food, sourced locally and prepared 

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 be soon forgotten.

We are working hard on our two bedroom bed and breakfast with views of the vineyard and a stunning Scandi style interior that will not disappoint. Every selection has been made for your comfort and the stylish fit-out is to be savoured.

Gaze out the windows onto the rows of vines or sit in the sun on your own private deck as you take in a pastoral scene down to the river.
