    For the Love of Wine - Dec 12 2021 - Duncan Forsyth

    Kirsten is joined by Duncan Forsyth from Mount Edward winery in Central Otago - a colourful winemaker loving life and regularly taking on new challenges. And along the way raising a few eyebrows. Curtis Marsh, a sommelier and very funny wine writer – also known under the name Wandering Palate, says: "Duncan Forsyth belongs to a wild fermenting gaggle of Central Otago vignerons that have evolved like a Band of Brothers; all to a varying degree they are recalcitrant, insubordinate, revolutionist, ingenious, jocular and witty but in the Neo-Darwinism of the New Zealand wine industry, they are the dynamic – the avant-garde." Duncan reflects on the description and dives into explaning what Central Otago is all about - the wines, the Terrôir, the subregions etc. In 2019, his peers in the Central Otago Winegrowers Association honoured Duncan with the Outstanding Services Award, for “special contribution over many years... for the greater good of the wider industry.”

    For the Love of Wine - Nov 14 2021 - Celia Hay

    The New Zealand world of wine is full of colourful people who are all passionate about their craft.
    Kirsten is joined by Celia Hay who has always been fascinated by flavoursome food, international cuisines, fine wine and the art of hospitality - which led her to establish Hay's Restaurant in 1994 and the New Zealand School of Food and Wine in 1995, both in Christchurch. The 2010 and 2011 earth quakes in Christchurch forced her to close her restaurant and she subsequently moved her school to Auckland. Celia grew up on the Inveralloch farm in Pigeon Bay, Banks Peninsula, which has been in the Hay family since 1843. Drawing on her experience as a chef and restaurateur Celia has been able to develop a range of comprehensive New Zealand Qualifications Authority programmes and short courses to reflect the growing skills needed by hospitality businesses. Meet Celia Hay - an innovative food and wine lover with a zest for quality and the good life.
