Janine’s roots are firmly planted in Hawke’s Bay, her Great Grandparents arrived from Ireland in 1877 raised 15 children, all born in the province. These children became Minsters, farmers, business owners, teachers and vineyard operators in the area. Although Janine has travelled and danced around the world her love for Hawke’s Bay has brought her home.
The relationships forged from her heritage and families she grew up with as well as an in- depth knowledge of the area, is what gives her a passion for the province. Janine has been involved in many aspects of the hospitality industry and appreciates a great food and wine match.
The Hawke’s Bay people, climate, food and wine create a lifestyle worthy and a joy to share. With Janine there is always an element of fun.
