Hi, my name's Sky, and I'm the owner of Peacock Sky Vineyard. You could say I'm "top dog" over here - arf!

I'm usually hanging out around the Vineyard, finding new doggie friends to play with or begging for a belly rub. Dogs are welcome here at PSV! We have ample outdoor seating and the staff is always so great about bringing me and other dogs a water bowl when we're relaxing under a table.

About Peacock Sky Vineyard

Peacock Sky Vineyard was born in 2008 when Connie Festa and Rob Meredith purchased a small established vineyard in the centre of Waiheke. The couple, originally from Canada and the UK, respectively, worked tirelessly to turn the operation into a customer driven vineyard and built a product line of bubbles, white wines, rosé and red wines to showcase their passion.

Connie’s love for beautiful cuisine naturally fit into the business plans and in 2013, they built the restaurant, Le Côté de la Colline, and began serving lunch. For eight years, Connie designed beautiful, Mediterranean inspired menus constructed to pair perfectly with each season's PSV wines.

Our culinary delights will be prepared by a group of talented chefs from all over the globe. Led by culinary guru and Executive Chef, Connie Festa, who brings garden to table to every dish and, masters every savour and flavour you can imagine. The team is complemented by Sarlota Vilimkova from the Czech Republic, who will be taking on the Head Chef role and bring to us international tastes and delights. Hanne Ossler from Sweden has spent many years creating pasta delights and baking artisan breads from the durum wheat that was farmed on the island of Hven in Sweden where she lived. Returning to us is our resident pastry master Monika Pirklova who is also from the Czech Republic.


Every year, the Vineyard adds new members to the family from all over the country, including wine tasters and servers from all over the world. Connie and Rob travelled the world before moving to their adopted home of Waiheke and continue to bring a multitude of nationalities into the PSV family. We can offer tastings in English, French and Mandarin.
