** PRESS RELEASE ** Domaine Thomson Wines Provides Welcome Addition to Central Otago’s Venue and Events Scene

High profile winery Domaine Thomson Wines has identified a gap in the Central Otago venue market opening its quality cellar door facilities to a range of events including weddings and corporate and private functions.

The 20-year-old New Zealand family-owned organic vineyard and wine producer launched its cellar door and wine tasting outlet a year ago in a purpose-built architecturally designed complex at the company’s 14ha pinot noir vineyard close to Cromwell.

“Due to the success of this venture combined with feedback from visitors about the cellar door’s ideal location as a venue we have this week released our event and venue hire package,” says Domaine Thomson Wines Operations Manager Kate Barnett.

“Over the past unsettled and tumultuous year we have been overwhelmed by visitor numbers and local support. Our beautiful setting and intimate spaces have led to numerous enquiries from guests about holding functions such family celebrations and corporate activities at the vineyard and we see this as a natural progression.”

“For people who have been searching for an outstanding event venue, where great food and even better wine is a priority, Domaine Thomson Wines’ cellar door is the perfect solution,” says Kate “Our unique space suits all types of events from celebratory canapes to special ceremonies, private lunches and business meetings and presentations.”


“The BEST of Central – The venue at Domaine Thomson was and is a beautiful environment for a gathering like ours. The building is a warm and attractive venue, classy in every aspect. When the catering and wines are added to the mix, the whole event was one of the highest class. It exceeded our expectations by a large measure. We look forward eagerly to more of the same” Grahame Sydney, Artist.

Good wine alone is worth celebrating, but if you have been searching for a unique event venue, with good food and even better wine to host your next function, look no further.
With beautiful vistas over our vineyard and beyond to Lake Dunstan, combined with tasteful French-inspired décor, our stunning cellar door facilities are the perfect location for you to host your bespoke dinner, event or conference.

The Domaine Thomson Cellar Door entertaining venue was completed in the Summer of 2020 and provides a luxurious and private atmosphere to meet – for a conference, intimate private dinner, wedding or family celebration. Designed by architects Noel Lane and Tom Rowe, our Cellar Door sits on a natural platform above the vines with panoramic views across the vineyard to Lake Dunstan. Surrounded by mountain ranges, the image forms a classic Central Otago landscape.
