The Ultimate Guide to a New England Destination Wedding

Ever wanted to have a destination wedding in the Country? Maybe a winery wedding? How about just a celebration with all your family & friends in a beautiful country setting?

We've got you covered! Check out our ultimate wedding guide for a wedding with us at Merilba Estate Wines.

THE VENUE

We're a premium boutique winery located just outside Uralla, near Kingstown. We're only an hour or so from Armidale, Inverell & Tamworth. Planted and established in 1998, our Cellar Door has been operating for around 10 of those years, and all of our wines are crafted on site by Owner & Winemaker Shaun Cassidy. These wines will be available to you for your wedding reception.

Enjoy an outdoor ceremony in our gardens, followed by the ultimate winery wedding in our fully renovated woolshed. Pressed copper lined walls, a view through the full height glass & an open fire for the colder months all make for a beautiful setting for your reception. All of your photo's can be taken on our property as well, throughout the gardens & vineyards.

 

HOW TO GET TO & FROM MERILBA?

We've had everything from Motorbikes to Helicopters bring guests to weddings at Merilba, however the most common way to get your guests to and from the winery is using our local bus service. Kingstown Bus Service can offer coaches to take your guests to Armidale, Uralla, Inverell or Tamworth at extremely reasonable rates.
