Had a wine tasting / pairing here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The owner (Connie) is a real character and had plenty of stories to go with the excellent platters and even better wines!

The highlight here is undoubtedly the wines themselves, however the food pairings were well thought through and complimented the wines superbly. We ended up buying a number of wines from here, which we have yet to taste, however I am pretty sure they will be divine!

We brought an annual client event to Peacock Sky on a busy Saturday afternoon. We've been taking the same bunch of clients and friends on this wine trip to a different part of NZ every year for 11 years so there's not much they've not seen before. Having said that, they were impressed with Peacock Sky.

The food pairings, hosted by Rob, were amazing. He's entertaining, knowledgeable and a great host.

We followed this with lunch hosted by Connie which was equally lovely. Simple food, prepared with passion that tasted great. The wine pairings with lunch were spot on.

Connie and Rob made the afternoon worthwhile. It really was like having a superb lunch in your best friend's home: everyone was relaxed and very well attended to. The lemoncello and brandy were a nice round off to a wonderful afternoon (might have rounded off one or two of our guests a little more than others). ;o)

Will definitely come back! In the mean time we've got 3 boxes of Peacock Sky's delicious wine to savour until then.

You've got to be joking. If it doesn't come out of a tin, bottle or packet it isn't on the platter.
However, we did enjoy the food and wine tastings with Rob. He spoke informatively about what food went with which wine and we found this part of our visit interesting.
The situation of the vineyard takes in lovely views and is low key and casual, but we found the platters quite ordinary.
To sum it all up, we find it unbelievable that Peacock Sky is Trip Advisor followers' top rated restaurant on Waiheke Island.

I was organising a hen do for a close friend, and came across Peacock Sky on Trip Advisor. The reviews were all so positive, so I went ahead and contacted the owners in order to make a booking - and the reviews were spot on!
Connie (one of the owners) was quick to reply to emails, offering help and suggestions with how the party could be best organised at the winery. I was offered a specific hen party set up, with food, wine tasting and a private room for the group.
When we arrived at the winery (in a stunning location, with views of the hills and vineyards), we were greeted by friendly and polite staff, and seated at an outdoors table to begin our tasting. Our host was knowledgeable, without being in any way pretentious, he was also funny and friendly, immediately getting our party off to a great start. After the seating we were taken to our private eating area, where we served with homemade chutney and lovely eating platters - we even had a special brownie delivered for the bride to be, with a small gift!
The staff couldn't have been more helpful, were happy to stop and chat with us, as well as bend over backwards to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
I couldn't recommend this place more highly, and can't fault a single aspect of our stay - except that they wouldn't let us take the lovely 'Vineyard Collie Dog' - Sky, home with us!

Definitely go and visit this winery, enjoy the setting, the food, the amazing service - and of course - their lovely wine!

Me and a friend visited Peacock sky on Sunday the 3rd of November, We ordered the cheese platter and the Chihuahua platter, the cheese was the most amazing cheese that I have had and i really wish you could buy it.

The service at Peacock sky was awesome, all the staff were friendly and were most accommodating after we decided to sit outside and then inside because it was chilly.

We also had the wine tasting paired with food and each went down very well, even the prawns and I do not like prawns.

When one of the staff dropped a glass candle holder and it smashed they were most apologetic and rushed to clean it up, this did not ruin the day but did the opposite and allowed us to feel that the service was even better then extraordinary.

Thank-you Connie and the staff at peacock sky.
