A great stop-off more than a winery tasting experience
Jan 2021 • Family
We stopped off at Pegasus Bay on the way to Hanmer from Christchurch and are very glad we did. As well as the tasting of their wines, of which the Rieslings were great, Pegasus Bay have a fantastic building and indoor and outdoor seating areas, as well as beautiful grounds.

Our children loved running around the lake and grounds. Their mother and father enjoyed the time to try out the wines!

Great wine tasting
Oct 2020 • Couples
Popped by the cellar door on our way from Nelson to Christchurch and was happy to make it before it closed. (Only open 10-5 on weekends at the moment) the tasting was $10 for about 15 wines which was great value. (Was at cloudy bay the day before and had 5 wines to taste for the same price) We were served by Kat which was very knowledgeable and had exceptional service. Both red and white wines were great - aromatic and complex. Highly recommend this if you are ever around Waipara

Such a lovely place and meal
Nov 2019
We had a group lunch at the restaurant. The food is really good and we love the sourdough bread and miso butter starters. We were served by Rose who is really a lovely host. She explained each dish and the wine selection to us very well. Food was truly marvellous and we had ordered a magnificent variety to try -
Fish crudo, charcuterie, mixed olives
Line caught fish with BBQ asparagus, smoked potato, oyster creme
Organic pumpkin pine nut tortellini, seeds, fresh sheep curd
Harris beef bone in ribe eye, dry aged
Everything was perfect. We bought some wines to bring back at the end of our meal.

Okay tasting

The tasting room associate was a bit stressed and there was a weird humming noise in the background, the wines were good and the restaurant was fabulous but couldn’t say the same about the tasting room experience.

Best wine tasting in Waipara
Feb 2020 • Friends
This is the best place for wine tasting. They take you through an entire wine menu and there is no cover charge. We always buy though because the wine is so good. Great to follow up with lunch or snacks from the restaurant and walk the beautiful gardens.

Not yer average winery restaurant
Jan 2020
It's been some years since we visited any of the North Canterbury wineries and weren't sure what to expect when we booked for a wine tasting and lunch here - and I have to say we were mightily impressed. A rustic building in an attractive setting with beautiful gardens added to excellent wines and a quite superb lunch sitting in the sun. The food was a genuine surprise; an interesting menu with quality fresh ingredients superbly cooked and beautifully presented. We enjoyed our dishes of fish, duck breast and wagyu beed plus some lovely desserts. Clearly a quality chef in the kitchen. And our server, a pleasant, professional and friendly lad from Canada was another plus. A great experience all round. Highly recommended.

Consistent excellence, wish was closer to ChCh

Never let down here, comfortable bistro ambience. The ability to chose old wines from the wine list is much appreciated. Very much enjoyed the 2016 Chardonnay and 2009 Pinot Noir. The highlights with food are the fantastic bread, the duck was perfectly cooked and the licorice granola inspiring and the berry dessert with the spectacular presentation. From my point of view amongst the best winery restaurants in NZ.

Another perfect lunch
Jan 2020 • Friends
We had an absolutely fantastic lunch here. The wine tasting was very informative and helped us decide which wines to have with lunch. The wait staff were very welcoming and Jess looked after us extremely well, was informative, answering all our questions in a friendly and professional manner. We sat outside which was perfect, sitting in the beautiful garden. After lunch we walked round the garden and down to the red Japanese style bridges over the river, the eels and the lone white swan.
