Robyn & Stuart moved from the UK to New Zealand and decided to set up their home in Rapaura in November 2012 - Robyn is a Kiwi and after over 30 years in the UK and Europe she & Stuart decided it was time to enjoy Marlborough on a permanent basis. With the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, the wonderful wines and the amazing selection of locally produced food the area has so much to offer.
Having held senior positions in business – Robyn was in travel as a director at Thomas Cook and Stuart owned and ran an Event Management business - they opened an Art Gallery and Gift Boutique at The Vines Village in March 2013 when a few months later the opportunity to acquire Gourmet Collection arose. The love of food and wine and the enjoyment of cooking and entertaining meant that Gourmet Collection was an opportunity not to be missed!
Robyn & Stuart and their experienced team want to ensure a high level of personal service and a relaxing shopping experience. The extensive range of delicious sauces, oils, vinaigrettes and relishes complimented by locally made liqueurs, craft beers and spirits will bring joy to the taste buds and offers the opportunity to sample a real "Taste of New Zealand".
