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.”
She says the recent appointment of Ashlyn Monk as Event Manager to oversee the exclusive package being offered underlines Domaine Thomson’s commitment to providing an exceptional service.
“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 Ashlyn “Our unique space suits all types of events from celebratory canapes to special ceremonies, private lunches and business meetings and presentations.”
Domaine Thomson is hosting an Event and Venue Open Day on Thursday February 18th for anyone interested, including wedding celebrants, accommodation providers and service partners in the region.
“From 11.00am until 3.00pm we will be showcasing our people and spaces, providing nibbles and highlighting specific event functions,” says Ashlyn. “Our capacity is limited and we invite people to register their interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org identifying Event Open Day.”
The Domaine Thomson cellar door remains open seven days a week from 11.00 am until 5.00pm offering tastings of both their Central Otago and French wines. The vineyard is located at 46 Clark Road, opposite the Pisa Moorings turnoff, 12 kilometres north of Cromwell.

“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.
