Tairāwhiti Gisborne wine and food
If you were going to design a region that’s great at growing wonderful ingredients, it would look a lot like Tairāwhiti Gisborne in the North Island of New Zealand. There would be an expanse of Pacific coastline for fishing, fertile farmland for vegetables and fruit trees, stony river plains for intensely-flavoured grapes and more than 2,500 sunshine hours a year. Gizzy, as the locals call it, ticks all of these boxes. It’s a place of abundance that accomplished chefs and winemakers are proud to call home.
