About Winehouse

The Winehouse is the perfect romantic location. The lovingly restored, turn of the century villa invokes a sense of New Zealand's pastoral heritage.

Our large croquet lawn is the perfect location for a garden ceremony and to enjoy cocktails and canapes prior to dinner.

Gorgeous bay windows look out to the potager garden and French doors make a dramatic entrance to the stunning courtyard pavilion for reception.

With beautiful gardens, rugged scenery, and the very best of Central Otago food, wine, and hospitality on offer, Winehouse is a perfect place to create your own unique experiences for your guests

Editor’s Notes

Why we love it…

Perched on a clifftop enveloped by rolling hills and rugged terrain, there is a distinct charm about this lovingly restored villa and its dreamlike gardens.


For the couple…

Looking for an intimate venue with character and warmth that can incorporate both indoor and outdoor elements to their wedding. Winehouse is perfect for the couple who seek the ultimate garden-style wedding surrounded by lush greenery and incredible scenery.


Styling tips…

We envision a garden celebration with all-white florals, long tables adorned with scattered candlelight and pontoon lighting overhead for a perfectly lit evening under the stars.
