Hawkes Bay proud, Andy knows his town through and through and is always quick with recommendations on local sights to see and where to eat and drink. Well aware of how spoilt they are for variety and quality when it comes to the amazing wineries and restaurants his hometown has to offer.
Always acting as our voluntary tour guide, there isn’t a member of HQ who hasn’t sat in the passenger seat of the Torino, perusing the town with Andy, when visiting on business. You will usually find yourself ending up at his place having dinner with the family or chatting to his customers, who know him by name, when visiting his stores.
“I love getting to know people. Coming from Auckland there is a really nice family feel about Hawke's Bay. People take time to stop and have a chat, catch up and listen. That level of community interaction is awesome. There isn’t anywhere else I’d rather be”.
