The Old Kaikoura Winery sits high on a limestone bluff and looks both to mountains and sea with the most stunning views. At the right time of year, a picturesque backdrop of grape vines adds that extra dimension to an already beautiful vista.

We are confident we have a unique venue – just for you!


We absolutely understand and appreciate just how important your wedding day is to you.

Our Restaurant overlooking the sea and our Underground Cellar are perfect for wedding celebrations of any size. Each space offers a completely different ambience for a wedding celebration, whether an intimate occasion or a large affair. You may wish to marry on the lawn overlooking the sea, utilise the Restaurant for your nibbles and host your reception in the Underground Cellar. You may wish to use either space on its own. There are a number of options available to you, depending on the look and feel you wish for your wedding day.

Of course, a fabulous venue comes with fabulous food!  From bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions to ‘day after’ brunches, our culinary staff will work with you to create menus that reflect your own special style. This isn’t just any meal. This is the start of a wonderful journey together. We want you to remember it for the rest of your life!

To ensure that all goes as it should, an experienced wedding planner comes with the venue! Your wedding expert is experienced, friendly and ready to advise and assist you with your wedding day. Offering advice on timings, to assistance with seating plans, through to meeting your special guests at the door on the day – you will be able to relax knowing the details will all be taken care of by an attentive professional who cares.

We would be absolutely delighted to be a part of your wedding day celebration!
