Melton Estate
Melton Estate is a boutique winery and event venue set on 12 acres in West Melton, west of Christchurch just 10 minutes from the airport. We specialise in elegant weddings in a vineyard setting. As the venue owner I work closely with the bridal couple to create a memorable day for all. We provide the complete package – an elegant venue inclusive of all food and wine offerings. Melton Estate was awarded the Best South Island Wine Tourism Restaurant in the International Great Wine Capitals 2013 Best of Wine Tourism Awards (also the 2012 winner), and an Excellence Award for the 2014 Beef and Lamb Awards, and we now have national quality rating from Qualmark NZ of 4 Star Plus. Our wines have also gained medals in local and national wine competitions.

Melton Estate features a modern winery building overlooking rows of lush Pinot Noir vines. There is space to host weddings of 150 guests. We can accommodate your group in our banquet room, plus there is a separate dance floor, bar area, and another space ideal for gifts, tea & coffee. There are plenty of outdoor areas to enjoy, including lawns, garden areas and the deck looking out over the vineyard. For the wedding service we have a beautiful all-weather wedding chapel amongst the vines – it’s called “The Pavilion”. And a great feature of Melton Estate is our beautiful boutique wine, including the acclaimed Sparkling Riesling “Summer Love”. With all of that we provide the complete service, making it a great day for yourself, family and friends.

We believe we have the best winery wedding venue in Christchurch, and there are many thank you cards here from wedding couples that support this. Photographs of Melton Estate are on our website and even more on Facebook. We’ve also added a video of a wedding at Melton Estate.
