A quintessential country vineyard on the coast.
Villa Vineyards is a 60-acre property located deep in the Currency Creek wine country. Roughly an hour’s drive from the city and only 10 minutes from the riverside town of Goolwa, it’s a property you’re sure not to have heard of but will without a doubt be impressed by.
Owned by the Shaw Family, the original homestead and old barns (now cottages) are believed to have been built in the early 1900s. Wrapped by cottage gardens, big native gums and Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot producing vines, the property has a sense of calm, and it’s hard not to notice the clean country air.
Previously only ever offered to family and close friends, Villa Vineyards is now available for a select number of weddings and events per year as a fully flexible venue. Couples will be able to select their preferred caterer, bring in their own suppliers and even their own alcohol, or alternatively you’ll be able to use the family connection to add on a delicious wine package.
In terms of spaces, they’ve got some gorgeous options for you.
The front lawn of the gracious old villa under the big gum is certainly the most logical for ceremonies, especially with all the roses, but you could also opt to have the vines behind you or utilise one of the other spots in the garden. The tennis courts and side garden work well for pre-receptions.
The most important space though, is that reserved for receptions, the Tractor Shed. Closed on three sides with stone walls and protected by a high ceiling it’s a space large enough to accommodate 110 guests for a seated reception and opens out to a large lawn area adjacent to the vines which increases its capacity in fine weather. Roll in a food truck or wood fired pizza ovens, a cool external bar and a couple of strings of festoon lights. It’s a picture of laid back country wedding perfection.
Converted from a stone barn, two boutique queen studios are available to hire and are not only convenient but a ridiculously cute perk to a wedding at Villa Vineyards. They have the charm of age but with the comforts of modern life including a luxurious bedroom/living area and separate bathroom. The country charm even continues to breakfast, with all the provisions for a late breakfast cook up including eggs straight from the chook house.
Villa Vineyards is a gorgeous new country venue we’re sure you’ll fall in love with, and trust us, it’s worth the drive ❤️
