Our room and space options

The Tasting Room

Connected to the winery’s Barrel Hall by the aged wines room, the picturesque Tasting Room overlooks the entire Vineyard and Lake.

It is here that guests can sample and purchase a vast selection of wines from the Villa Maria ranges. Outside of general operating hours, the Tasting Room doubles as an events venue suitable for weddings, dinners and cocktail parties. Opening out onto the patio following out onto the green pastures, the Tasting Room basks gorgeous natural light, offering indoor and outdoor entertaining areas and the ability to attach a marquee for larger groups.


Barrel Hall

This contemporary space with its high ceilings and skylights is Villa Maria’s flagship venue.

Our largest multi-purpose event space, the Barrel Hall has the capacity to cater for a large number of guests. The hall is your own blank canvas for seminars, large degustation dinners, exhibitions, weddings, shows and conferences. Be it with the industrial winery feel, or adopt our theme production, audio-visual and installation expertise to create your very own space, whatever the event may be.


Lakeside Room & Courtyard

Located on the ground floor of the winery and opening out to a central courtyard, the Lakeside Room is suitable as both a professional environment for corporate meetings, and a great open space for medium sized parties, formal dinners, wine tastings and small weddings.

A spacious, open plan area with great natural light and a private courtyard area, the lakeside room can be arranged especially for your event.


Oruarangi Room

The Oruarangi Room is a self-sufficient seminar space designed with peace and privacy in mind. A small and cosy room, it’s perfect for smaller corporate groups. Located towards the rear of the winery and with its own separate entrance that opens out onto the lawn area. Not just for the smaller events, the Oruarangi Room makes a great reception for larger events in the Barrel Hall, and can easily be themed specifically for your event.


Vineyard Setting

Villa Maria's vineyard grounds offer a number of sites suitable for outdoor events, whether they are large or small. We work closely with professional industry suppliers to ensure every detail of your event is met.


Marquee Sites

Villa Maria's sweeping and picturesque vineyard grounds offer a number of sites suitable for outdoor weddings, whether they are large or small. The view from any location is that of stunning natural beauty - rows of vines, large willowy trees, greenery and in the centre of it all, an ornamental lake.

We work closely with professional marquee suppliers to ensure the best choice of marquee. We also work closely with you to ensure that the wedding set up is perfect for your requirements.
