Ben Bayly (at the helm of The Grove, Metro Mag’s top fine dining restaurant 2017) launched the wine and food offering of the Creative Matakana initiative ( on Monday at the Big House, Brick Bay. A wonderfully inventive menu matched with Brick Bay wines, also utilised our farm meat, honey, macadamias and newly pressed olive oil. Guest appearances by our Glass House suppliers Whangaripo Buffalo Cheese and Honest Chocolat added to this unique experience.
