Enjoy Church Road Wines Responsibly

The Winery is situated within the Taradale township that lies in beautiful country surroundings near Napier in Hawke’s Bay.
First established in 1897, major restoration has seen the rebuilding of this historic winery and the addition of New Zealand’s first winemaking museum.
Our highly skilled team is proud to have forged a name for unrivalled service and attention to detail. After all, we know it’s the little extras that will make your wedding day extraordinary.

Church Road offers a stunning garden ceremony option. Guests can enjoy drinks and canapes in our beautiful park setting or shaded under magnolia trees.
Plus, there’s no need to go off-site for your wedding photographs. Wedding parties love our award-winning gardens and underground cellars for the spectacular backdrops they provide. Our beautiful grounds can be used to capture your special day and fill your album with unforgettable memories.

Offering our premium Church Road wines, along with exceptional cuisine from the team at Dish Catering, you’re sure to impress your guests. Menus can be customised and we would be happy to match the ideal wines to your choice of food.

We are here to help you every step of the way and can provide you with local information on everything from your cake to entertainment.
