When I walk into Cafe Gandolfi every morning at eight o'clock, with the sun slanting through the big windows, the place is coming alive. Deliveries are arriving: bread, groceries, the fishmonger's van - and everyone is slipping easily into their routine, anticipating the first customer of the day.
YEALANDS WINE DINNER
@7pm on Tue 19th September in Gandolfi Fish
A 5-course celebration of the finest wines from the acclaimed Yealands Family Winery. Hosted by Helen MacFarlane.
Open since 2008, Yealands Family Winery is one of New Zealand’s most ecologically advanced wineries. Devoted to the concept of 100% sustainability, Yealands has been making award winning wines with no carbon footprint ever since. Perched on a headland in the cooler southern sub region of the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, the wild, coastal location has a huge influence on the world-renowned wines produced.
