F.A.W.C! Day Out is new and is the official launch of Summer F.A.W.C!
F.A.W.C! Day Out is about taking part in some masterclasses, discovering new tastes and produce at our food stalls, devouring food off the Hawke’s Bay Grill and trying any number of Hawke’s Bay drops. It will all take place in and around the glorious spaces of Black Barn Vineyards.
