Other Occasions

Do you have a special occasion coming up you wish to celebrate with others? Perhaps a special birthday, wedding anniversary, graduation celebration, intimate wedding, family reunion or cocktail party or just a wish to have you nearest and dearest around to share in an evening of togetherness.

Matakana Estate is a magnificent place for our guests to host a special gathering while staying with us. We specialise in hosting smaller parties (max 12 pp) indoors at the Lodge, or up to 35 people outdoors on the Estate grounds. It may be on the Lodge lawns, in the Enchanted Forest, up at the new Cellar door (opening mid 2020) or anywhere else on the Estate which appeals.

We are connected with a number of supplier partners who can provide small marquees, tents, outdoor lighting, dance floors, sound systems, outdoor heating and all other party supplies. We also have a collection of our own furniture and catering supplies which we have on site for hire. Let us know what your requirements are and our host will organise it for you. (Please note however, that depending on the number of guests and the type of gathering, a venue charge/and or organisation fee may be charged in addition to your accommodation fee.) 

Our wine selection is varied, and it is expected that lodge guests will order Matakana Estate wines for their event. Because of this we offer our Lodge guests a 30% discount. In our experience function guests always enjoy dirnking wine grown and/ or made on site. Especially when the spectacular lights in the lodge have been made from the same vines! Our wine list can be sent to you pre-order your wine. We can also pre-order local beer or kombucha should you also wish to have these at your event.

Matakana Estate Lodge has prepared a guide for those guests wishing to host small events during their stay. These will provide a checklist to ensure that your event runs smoothly and is enjoyed by all , and that our Lodge is also respected and well cared for.

Please contact us directly for more information about our guidelines or for any specific inquiries.

As an ideal spot for an intimate wedding, The Enchanted Forest provides just the right amount of shade to keep the guests cool whilst still providing views of the vines.
