Ascension Wine Estate

This award winning Premier Estate and Venue is set among the vines of Matakana, just 45 minutes north of Auckland and has been refined to host your ceremony, photos, canapés and reception all at one incredible location. Our passion is captured in handcrafted wine, inspired cuisine, attentive & friendly service and beautiful surroundings.

Each aspect of the estate is designed to offer privacy and luxury. With a number of settings for the ceremony, as well as our limitless options for the reception, you will find the ideal area, perfectly suited to your personal requirements. From a small and intimate soiree, to a large lavish celebration, we are able to fulfill your expectations.

Throughout the four seasons, have peace of mind knowing that there is an alternative all-seasons, all-

Late autumn and winter are also gorgeous times to celebrate your wedding at Ascension Wine Estate. The autumn colors and starkness of the vines is dramatic and beautiful in the cooler months, making for unique wedding photos.
