Christchurch and Canterbury Sights



Pegasus Bay Review

Family-run Pegasus Bay has one of the region's best reputations for wine and food in Canterbury, and the helicopters lined up on the lawn at lunchtime will confirm that. Taste the award-winning rieslings, chardonnay, and pinot noir while you look through a window at floor-to-ceiling stacks of oak aging casks. It has been ranked among the top five wine producers nationally by Robert Parker's buyer's guide and it's been named Best Winery Restaurant in NZ by Cuisine magazine five times. In good weather, dine outdoors in the garden or picnic in a natural amphitheatre by a small man-made lake. It's best to book if visiting for a meal or large group tastings. There's a helipad if you're in a hurry. Reservations recommended.
