The Winehouse | Venue Series
Next in our venue series is The Winehouse! ♡
Nestled in the Gibbston 'Valley of Vines' and adjacent to the Kawarau Bridge, the homestead has spectacular views of the mountain range, rugged Otago scenery and bridal veil waterfall as well as offering a romantic and private experience. The historic homestead is absolutely full of charm, from its tree-lined entrance to bright red roof and flower-filled gardens.
A perfectly-manicured croquet lawn offers a perfect, sun-filled location to host a garden ceremony, with space behind to serve guests cocktails and canapés, and to play lawn games while guests socialise before moving to the reception.
Moving through to the homestead, a courtyard pavilion has recently been renovated to boast beautiful bay windows, French doors and a stonework floor - letting sunshine through all the while keeping the venue dry and free from any gusts of wind. The pavilion can seat up to 250 people and has views on one side to forest-covered hills and on the other side to the Winehouse's lovely gardens. The main house has a bar inside, space for a dance floor, more private rooms for children to play in and modern, spacious bathrooms.
The Pavilion is also host to the most amazing open fire...
What's more is that the Winehouse has incredible staff - professional, helpful, proficient and kind people, and a wonderful kitchen team that prepare and serve excellent Central Otago food and wine. The venue hire also includes a coordinator and personal event manager to help everything go exactly to plan.
Some of our favourite vendors to consider for a function at The Winehouse - Simply Perfect Weddings, The Flower Room, Rich Bayley Photography, Jim Pollard, Emily Adamson, Alpine Image Co & Williams Photography!
For some inspiration and a better insight into the lovely locale that is The Winehouse, we've put together a collection of our favourite photos, on both the croquet lawn, under the pavilion and around the grounds, and involving both custom installations and our general hire & styling items.
See the photos below...make sure you get all the way to the end for our custom setups of glass orbs, festoon lights and more! ↣
