“I am glad its not in our town”
Review of Black Peak Gelato

Black Peak Gelato
Ranked #2 of 4 Dessert in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Description: We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines. Come and see how these old machines work, you may be lucky enough to get a sample straight out machine if you time it right. In store we make over 90 different flavours with 18 to choose from daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make delicious crepes and hot chocolate. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.

“I am glad its not in our town”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

As a Gelato producer in Merimbula, Australia, I am glad Black Peak Gelato is not in our town because it would be a Gelato War, all be it in good fun. They use fruits direct from the producer which shows in the quality and verity of flavors. Black Peak has spurred me on to experiment more myself at The Original Fix. Thank you for your openness and we will be back or I hope to see you some day at "The Fix". PS the place around the corner from you was pretty average.

“good gelato”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

excellent selection of flavors but a bit too sweet for my liking, friendly and tolerant staff, great location on the main lake front and useful to have own carpark
