How does a rustic, authentic, Italian vineyard with formal gardens tucked out of the way on idyllic Waiheke Island sound? If the answer is ‘Perfect!’,  you need to take a close look at  Poderi Crisci .  A unique venue which easily earned its place in Metro’s 50 Best Restaurants in Auckland 2013, Poderi Crisci hosts a limited number of weddings and it is no surprise that demand outstrips supply for available dates.

While some couples put Waiheke Island at the top of their list of wedding venues because of the stunning sea views and beach locations, those in the know on the island recommend an intimate vineyard experience nestled in a beautiful hidden rural valley, which only Poderi Crisci can offer. Although it is just a brief 10 minutes away from Onetangi, it is a haven of tranquility and calm.

Waiheke Event Hire provided the marquee canopy for a recent wedding, extending the covered seating area and protecting from the elements.  Our verdict? Definitely deserving of a place in the Top Wedding Venues on Waiheke Island, or anywhere in the world.!
