Functions at Poderi Crisci are always bespoke, and designed with the wishes of our guests in mind. We can design bespoke menus to suit any occasion, from corporate launches, birthdays, weddings and any other special occasion that might arise.

Outdoor or indoor sapces available to cater for events from 10 – 140 guests. From walk and fork style cocktail parties to elaborate dinners and glamorous awards nights, we will also work with you to make your event a most memorable occasion for you and your guests.

There are many possibilities for holding your business, team or social functions and events at Poderi Crisci. No matter what type of event you would like to hold at Poderi, we will always give the best service and menu to suit your needs.

Some of our popular options for functions include the Barrel Room, set in the cellar of the estate. The room is beautifully rustic with sturdy wooden tables placed between the wooden casks and rows of stacked bottles, creating the most stunning ambience. The main restaurant and outer decked areas are perfect for larger functions and we are also able to organise marquees for extra undercover seating/ standing areas. The gardens provide a stunning setting for ceremonies and other event requests.

We regularly use all Waiheke transport providers including Fullers (Passenger ferries), Sealink (Car ferries) so are able to quote and / or take care of your travel arrangements both on the island and from Auckland.

Being at Poderi Crisci feels a world away from Auckland. If you want to create a special event with the most memorable food, service and setting, we will do our utmost to accommodate your group.
