    Wine Friend - always a friend

    Wine Friend has been a great supporter of both the First Press grape juices and The Family Wines for awhile now

    If you haven't come across them online they are a great starting point to purchase wines if you are not sure what you really want/like.

    Their motto's is "So many wines to choose between. Who has time to taste them all? We do"

    They make you do a little test so they know what wines you like. You will be sent a case of wine each month or so like magic (being your credit card).

    Such a great concept and with the amazing taste buds of Yvonne Lorkin behind it you know it will be tasty and interesting.

    And you know what is great about it, on a rainy Friday night when your friends are too busy you will always have a little bottle waiting quietly for when you need a friend.

    As a manufacturing and marketing business we at Gisborne Gourmet do not often get to see our products as they are intended to be used, we do not sit down every night to a meal prepared by chefs nor do we visit restaurants as regularly as we would like. So we are super excited to be the first of a series of Gisborne producers to be highlighted in The Producer Series hosted and created by The Works.

    The chef will create a tasting menu featuring Waimata Cheese and our free-range game birds from Manurau which will in turn be matched with The Family Wine and our First Press Juice's and of course, as we live in Gisborne there will be a large seafood component...delicious!

    Tickets are very limited (only 30 seats) so get in quick!
    If you would like to try our products but you cannot get there you can order on line here...

    We will of course be there so follow along on Instagram and we will keep your updated with our favourite courses and don't forget we love to see what you do with our products so please tag us @gisbornegourmet

    Please contact The Works to make a booking on 06-868 9699 or visit 41 The Esplanade
