Join us for this long lunch as we mingle with Gisborne’s finest Chardonnays overlooking the stunning Pacific Ocean on The Black House property. Guests will enjoy the best local produce and kaimoana from our shores dished up by Marina Restaurant’s French chef, Stephane Dussau.
Wine writer and Chardonnay adorer MermaidMary will be the MC for this year's long lunch held at The Black House. Best known for her weekly radio slot on MagicTalk radio as well as writing for Cuisine Magazine and New Zealand House and Garden, Mary is a fun and engaging MC and looks forward to hosting what promises to be another remarkable event in a truly unique location.
You will also be entertained throughout the afternoon by two Tairawhiti originals, passionate singer Mere Tokorahi Boynton whose desire is to sing in te reo Māori and soulful singer/songwriter Ariana Henare.
