Tui had the most delightful time meeting you and your family. Great company, good food and she knows the wine was good (having researched before the day). She enjoyed it so much both of us had to go back the next day for lunch together!

Thank you Vivian (and Vern), suiting the pace to your energy levels on the day is important to make things as enjoyable as possible. I wonder, how many cases of wine has Vern ordered for delivery yet? Regards, Mark.
