“It's a 'must do' in Wanaka”
Review of Black Peak Gelato

Black Peak Gelato
Ranked #2 of 4 Dessert in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $4 - $8
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 wicked hot chocolates. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.

“It's a 'must do' in Wanaka”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place is an absolute gem!! The gelato is delicious, fresh, made on site is a spotlessly clean shop by a very pleasant and attentive owner. The choice of flavours are inspired from ginger (you HAVE to try that) to local fruit sorbets - it's an ever changing range and you're guaranteed to find something for your palate. Even in the depth of winter, I would say this is a must do as gelato is much lighter than ice cream and served either in crunchy waffle cones or in a compost able bowl. The hot chocolate is wonderful too and we have become dedicated devotees of this gorgeous little place!

“He takes his Gelato very serious.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

He gives you a seriously generous scoop of gorgeous gelato. The ginger gelato was really fantastic, so was the Ferrero Gelato.
In fact I don't think there was a bad one in there.

“So very naughty but so very nice!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

What an amazing ice cream shop! My brother in law regularly visits this little place whenever he's up in Wanaka and decided to treat us. I opted for chocolate, which was so dark and smooth I hoped it would never end and peanut butter, a great combination! My hubby went for a lemon and watermelon combo which I didn't get to try :( as it was way too delicious to share. Will definitely visit again the next time we're in Wanaka.
