We can't think of a better way to spend a summer's afternoon than at the Villa Maria Estate in South Auckland listening to Tim Finn, Bic Runga and Dave Dobbyn with opening act Boh Runga and her special guest Che Fu.
Add to that a premium, fully catered experience - food and award-winning wines - for you and three friends, and we guarantee a feeling of total joy. Viva is delighted to have an exclusive prize package to give away for the MoreFM Winery Tour at Villa Maria Estate on Saturday March 6.
The total prize is valued at $950 and includes a signed copy of the Finn, Runga and Dobbyn album Together in Concert. To go into the draw for this fabulous prize, write your name, address and phone number on the back of an envelope and send it to: Villa Maria Estate Winery Tour Competition, Viva, NZ Herald, PO Box 3290, Auckland. Entries close February 10, winner announced February 17.
If, like us, you love the trend at restaurants and cafes to buy fresh New Zealand produce, then you might want to check out White restaurant at Auckland's Hilton.
Award-winning executive chef Cristiano De Martin has just launched a new summer menu featuring homegrown goodies such as Hawkes Bay lamb, Marlborough clams, Leigh snapper and seasonal vegetables, fruit and herbs. "Fresh, light and full of flavour" is how he describes dishes such as the entree of Budino of Crescent Dairy goat cheese ricotta with grilled zucchini and roast pepper dressing. Sounds delicious.
