Pegasus Bay Winery

Established by the Donaldson family who were pioneers of the Canterbury wine industry. The primary focus is Pinot Noir and Riesling. Structure and texture are hallmarks of the estate’s highly individual wines.


The winery restaurant and cellar door first opened in 1992 and has evolved from humble beginnings into what is widely regarded as one of the best boutique winery experiences in the country. Their restaurant serves up fresh local and seasonal cuisine including a wide selection of produce grown on the estate such as figs, olives, stone fruit, horse radish, herbs, currents & much more. There are extensive winery gardens including a wetlands area with several lakes. Dine inside the tastefully decorated restaurant by the open fire or outside amounts the breath-taking gardens. Pegasus Bay has been awarded NZ’s best winery restaurant 7 times in the past 10 years in the Cuisine Magazine’s Good Food awards.
