Jamie and Diana Reid run the very beautiful Willowstream Estate in Martinborough and produce the multi award winning Huangarua Olives, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They have very kindly offered to come alone and give us a tasting and a bit of a talk about their oil and methods of production.
The Reid family produces two varieties of extra virgin olive oil and although they are by far my favorites, what I would like to do is add another four bottles from different producers to the mix to give us a broader understanding of oils from the Martinborough region. Depending on the number of people attending this event will work out about $10 per person to cover the cost of oil, bread and maybe a vino or two.
If the weather is fine I am happy to host this one in my garden. Would appreciate it if someone could offer a venue in case of inclement weather.
If you are interested in reading a bit more about Huangarua Olive oil I wrote a section in my blog about them last month. http://nzculinaryexplorer.blogspot.co.nz/
