The Hunting Lodge Winery

The Hunting Lodge winery is an 80 acre estate located just 35mins drive from the CBD in the heart of Auckland's wine country. When only the best will do to celebrate your big day, The Barn has everything covered to ensure a beautiful, comfortable and smooth sailing day. Custom-built with weddings and big events in mind, our stunning new cedar-wood Barn can accommodate up to 250 people. Its beautifully designed interior has a lofty warmth with striking interchangeable pendant lights hanging from the vaulted ceiling, and white-washed walls to provide a blank canvas easily transformed to suit any occasion. The outdoor courtyard is fitted with a retractable roof and impressive open fireplace, set overlooking the vines Westward to catch the sunset and toast the day's end. With our vintage refitted caravan at your service “Jerry” will ensure your guests’ thirst is well looked after. We have a range of stunning seasonal menu’s designed by our executive chef Des Harris, you can be sure your guests will be well fed and pleased with their meals, no matter their requirements. The historic Hunting Lodge Homestead and funky new Cellar Door can also accommodate smaller groups with private meeting & tasting rooms perfect for any celebration, get together, corporate function, board meeting, and much, much more. Take a look through our image gallery, some shots courtesy of the lovely Jo Wickman who captured the shots at our first wedding, and other images were taken by the talented Anna Kidman.
