During peak holiday periods more staff required. We visited on 30 December and there was only one staff member (she was absolutely lovely and we felt for her trying to cope kn her own). For this reason the service was very slow, people were leaving without being served their platters and other visitors were being told they would not be able to be served.

We called in for a wine tasting and were warmly received, we decided to stay fir a platter for lunch with some excellent Pinot Gris. The platter was excellent with all items locally sourced cheese, meat, olives, breads, pesto and walnuts and of a deliciously high quality. Would throughly recommend a visit

As part of our cruise excursion, our tour guide/driver took us to French Peak Wines for wine sampling. The lady who served us the wines was pleasant and friendly and took time to explain the different wines to us. We were the only group at that time. The sampling room looked rustic and cozy, with a wood burn fireplace in one corner. It’s quite small compared to sampling rooms at other wineries we visited in New Zealand. Nothing much I can say about their wines – the wines tasted average to me; I was not overly impressed. What I enjoyed was the landscaping of their garden and the pond – they looked very tranquil. It was a nice stop and change of pace from our all-day Akaroa tour.

Tasting the wines grown in this amazing land is just an incredible experience! The Pinot noir is very special, with berries and plump flavour. The Rose is a real enjoyable quencher, a real "must try"! Plus, with such a very friendly and passionate owner,you can only have a good time.
