Mike Hynes: Owner/Operator

Food and Wine have always played a large part in my life, never more so than in the last two years of owning and operating a successful Café Bistro with my partner Vanessa in Mangawhai Heads, Northland.  My background in hospitality started a long time ago in the Waikato alongside my father who was a chef.   I mostly looked after the beverage side for my father in his catering businesses and restaurants which lead me to a passion for flavor in both food and beverage.   A career change in the late 90’s gave me an opportunity to explore the creative genes in woodworking which ultimately set up a cabinet making company specializing in fitting out restaurants, bars and cafes.

I have an excellent working knowledge of the hospitality industry from behind the scenes with initial set up, to the internal every day workings of a restaurant/café, to how important supply chain relationships are to the success of a popular venue no matter where they are situated.   Self-employment has carved into me a work ethic and service level that I am very proud of.   These are some of the attributes I bring to the table at our company, Vintage Distribution.

Vanessa Willems: Owner/Sales

Hospitality is a profession that brings both satisfaction and a sense of achievement.  When you witness the enjoyment and pleasure that a patron experiences from you doing your job, it makes all the hard work and long hours’ worth the while.

I have been in the hospitality trade for 30 years…. Much of this time working overseas, experiencing new flavours and styles of food and beverage…what a wondrous world we live in!

It is through passion that there are those of us who have chosen this style of work.  The wonder of taste, textures and smells….

With Vintage Distribution, we feel that we can bring all our wine and culinary experience’s that we have had to you with the satisfaction of knowing that the produce we offer has been sourced directly by ourselves.
