“A must to go and taste”

Peacock Sky Vineyard
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Peacock Sky Vineyard is located in the centre of Waiheke Island with views across the Hauraki Gulf to Auckland. The tasting room and restaurant are in a secluded setting surrounded by lush native bush, and the owners share their verdant home with a flock of wild peacocks from which the vineyard takes its name. Join us in The Tasting Room to sample our fine wines, each accompanied by a complimentary food pairing. Stay for a gourmet lunch platter and sit inside among our eclectic selection of antiques and artwork, relax outside at our picnic tables overlooking the vineyard, or enjoy the comfort of our new atrium dining area. Enjoy our delightful nature trail that runs through peaceful native bush between the vineyard and our main facilities. Stroll along the trail and cross the small wooden bridge over one of the streams feeding the Cascades Waterfalls. Call for information regarding hosting your wedding in the vineyard or perhaps holding a business meeting or corporate retreat.

“Best Wine Tasting EVER”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The owners of this winery are a very cute couple. Connie did our wine tasting, which was paired with lovely little appetizers. Connie is a chef with an MBA, which explains the savvy mix of this way of approaching a wine tasting and the fact that there is a restaurant on the property. Had our group not had reservations at Te Whau, we would've definitely eaten here!
This was the best winery we visited by far, and if I'm ever back in the Auckland area, I would definitely go again!

“The best wine tasting experience I’ve ever done”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The best wine tasting experience I’ve ever done.

Throughout Waiheke Island you have to pay to taste wine unlike anywhere else I’ve ever visited. Most vineyards were stuck up and snobby but the staff at Peacock Sky were lovely.

The best thing was that with every wine tasted you got a canapé/amuse bouche to compliment the wine which enhanced the experience even more. A bit of a drive along unsealed roads but well worth it.

Fantastic food pairings with the wines.

Lovely owner of Italian heritage who had lived in Montreal but moved to NZ.

Set high on the mountain top with lovely views.

Very friendly and welcoming.

“The best Vineyard on Waiheke”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This was by far the best Vineyard we visited on Waiheke so far. We had made a booking. We were greeted by friendly staff when we arrived. Staff explained what would be happening. we got settled at our table ordered lunch and then had tastings. This was different from other vineyards that they have a pairing of food with the wine and everything is explained. Very informative talk on the history of the vineyard and the owners. Lunch was divine. After lunch we relaxed in loungers in the sun. The wine prices were very reasonable and most of us bought wine. Will definitely come back to Peacock Sky.
