The Black Peak Gelato story started 70 years ago in Tuscany, Italy.
Mario’s father created the recipes and brought them with him when he emigrated to Australia.
The recipes were passed down to three friends, Heath, Dean and Jon upon his retirement.
All three now own artisan gelaterias in Beechworth and Bright Australia and Black Peak Gelato in Wanaka New Zealand.
Jon, owner of Black Peak Gelato, lives with his wife Alice and two daughters in Wanaka New Zealand.
