This is consistently one of the best options for lunch in the north Canterbury region. The menu is always exciting, and the wine list is excellent, especially as they offer back vintages that you can't buy in the tasting room. You must book ahead as it is very popular and on a fine day dining outside is a must! Highly... More

More people in Christchurch should make the trip. On a beautiful sunny winter day we were the only people in the tasting room. We got friendly, knowledge service from a lovely local lady(German originally, sorry name escapes me). Support local and buy directly from the winery. So many amazing wines in the area

45 minutes from Christchurch Pegasus Winery is an impeccable estate boasting the famous wines from the region. I recommend you make a booking if you'd like lunch as unfortunately my partner and I missed out on a table. The menu looked tasty - expect to pay fine dining type prices. We were instead offered the snack menu which looked delicious... More

Incredible backdrop. Some lovely white wines. Complimentary wine tasting. Lunch delicious. Ordered a main each and came with complimentary bread (gf available) with olive oil and a little starter, which wasn't expected. Some light features made from wine bottles.

Note - Pegasus Bay is not in Christchurch, as it says in the Tripadvisor info. It's in Waipara, approx 45 drive out of Christchurch. Watch out for the main highway turnoff, very close to 'Waipara Hills' winery, which is on the main highway. The scenery at Pegasus Bay Winery is gorgeous and we had a good walk around before entering... More

A friend recommended we visit here at the start of a Nth Canterbury holiday (from Auckland) and I cannot recommend this place more highly. The food and service were the best I have experienced. We arrived very late 3.30pm due to a hiccup at the airport but were greeted like family and made to feel like nothing was too much... More

They have an excellent selection of wines and are generous with their tastings. Their staff are knowledgable and their wines are great. The views and grounds are spectacular.

Three of us went for lunch to celebrate my birthday and we were not disappointed. The food and service were great and the outdoor seating area was spot on on a lovely warm Canterbury day. The vegetarian meal for my daughter was very nice and my husbands meal was delicious. I enjoyed the lamb but after ordering the dips and... More
