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.

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to review us. So glad you liked your 'Treble Cone' (3 scooper), we use fresh fruit in all our sorbets so you do get a pure natural fruit taste. Thanks again.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Black Peak serves the most awesome gelato we've ever tasted. The range of flavours is outstanding and John and his staff give everyone a friendly welcome. Can't wait for our next visit! The last reviewer must have been at another outlet.

“Terrible experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I also do not understand how this shop has such a high rating. The man serving us was exceptionally rude and the gelato was average tasting and icy. Most over rated frozen treat I have ever had.

“Lovely ice cream”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

So many nice flavours, it's hard to just pick one or two. Then when the final choice has been made, cross the road and savour it whilst enjoying the view of Lake Wanaka.
