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... View more 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.
Amongst the vines, alongside the Barn, or down by the olive groves, find your perfect ceremony spot and make it your own.

We did a LOT of venue shopping for our wedding, and when we finally found The Hunting Lodge we knew we had found the perfect spot. It ticked all of our boxes - location, space furniture, lots of parking to name a few - all while staying within our budget. Also it's BEAUTIFUL. The Barn is the perfect blank canvas to create literally whatever you want, and we definitely got what we wanted! And don't get us started on the catering - the food was delicious with generous portions for our guests, and the wine was even better!! From day one, Alex was incredible with getting us all set-up, and Mariana took over things effortlessly; both made us feel welcomed and well looked after throughout the whole planning process. Throw in lock-down and us having to reschedule our wedding into the mix, Mariana was absolutely amazing with helping us and our vendors navigate to a new date. And then on the big day, Mariana and her fantastic team looked after us and our guests phenomenally - we truly felt like the most special couple in the world. We could not be more thankful for everything everyone did to make our wedding so incredibly perfect.
