The century-old Church Road Winery has earned a reputation as one of New Zealand’s premier wedding venues. A very special location and ambience, award winning wines and fabulous cuisine make it the picture-perfect place to start your married life together.
The winery is situated within the Taradale township that lies in beautiful country surroundings just 15 minutes from both central Napier and Hastings. First established in 1897, major restoration has seen the rebuilding of this historic winery and the addition of New Zealand’s only major winemaking museum.
Church Road offers both *indoor and outdoor ceremony options, each equally as stunning which are also available for your drinks and canapé period. The winery’s premium reception venue is the striking Tom McDonald Cellar that overlooks 1.5 hectares of parklands. The cellar pays tribute to Tom McDonald’s contribution to the New Zealand wine industry. Fusing Old World French Provencal style with uniquely New Zealand influences, the Cellar boasts native tawa floors, open jarrah beams and contemporary copper lighting.
