We host wonderful winery weddings, always in style

At Melton Estate, our aim is to make your wedding day an enjoyable and memorable occasion for you and your guests.  As the venue owners we have the flexibility to tailor the wedding arrangements to suit you.  We welcome all types of weddings and civil unions.

Melton Estate hosts weddings throughout the year and has a capacity of 180 in The Pavilion for the wedding service and 150 inside for a seated wedding dinner service.  Melton Estate is a boutique winery with an architecturally designed venue purposely designed for weddings.  The Pavilion is an all-weather outdoor wedding chapel and entertaining space, complete with lighting and heating.  Our Banquet Room sits above the mature Pinot Noir vines and is the perfect venue for your wedding celebration. 

Just 15 minute’s drive west from Christchurch International Airport, Melton Estate is conveniently located in a quiet rural setting, with plenty of off-street parking.  Your wedding photography will be stunning amongst the sheltered gardens and expansive lawns which connect to the lush vineyards.  There’s plenty of space outside in our sheltered garden and terrace, on the hardwood deck overlooking the vines or inside the fully air conditioned winery with three connecting event rooms.

Melton Estate is the home of the acclaimed “Summer Love” Sparkling Riesling—a fantastic celebration wine for your wedding, plus there are many other award-winning wines.  Your family and friends will be treated to beautiful boutique wines. 

Melton Estate was awarded the South Island “Best Wine Tourism Restaurant” in the 2013 (and 2012) Great Wine Capitals awards, and the only Canterbury winery wedding venue with a Qualmark Venue 4 star Plus rating.  For us, the best accolades have come from the many happy couples who have celebrated their wedding at Melton Estate.

We welcome your visit to Melton Estate.
