“Tasty Homemade Gelato”
Review of Black Peak Gelato

Black Peak Gelato
Ranked #2 of 3 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 wicked hot chocolates. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.

My girlfriend and I are regulars at Black Peak Gelato, aiming to try every one of the flavors! Good to finally have a true ice cream place in our town, even better that it's freshly made. If you make it to Wanaka definitely make it one of your stops, winter or summer. YUM! Go the all blacks!

Eating ice-cream (or gelato in this case) in the middle of winter isn't normally my thing. But after hearing people go on about this local ice-cream shop (again, I think it's gelato) I gave it go. I don't normally do reviews, but people need to know that the chocolate gelato from Black Peak is creamy and rich (without the overwhelming heaviness) and tastes like angels dancing on your tastebuds. I'm having two scoops next time because the guy told me it goes really well with the raspberry sorbet.

What can I say. This was simply the best icecream i've ever had. If Queenstown is famous for Fergburger, then Wanaka is about to become famous for Black Peak Gelato.

Its a shame we were only passing through - but certainly a good excuse to go back to Wanaka.
