Vintner’s goes French
ITWAS a French affair on Sunday as more than 80 people celebrated Bastille Day at Vintner’s Secret Vineyard.
Guests enjoyed French-themed wine, food and music as they relaxed under fluttering French flags.
They dined on typical French finger-food plates, delectable pastries and, of course, wine as they listened to music performed by Redridge band Nostalgia.
Vintner’s Secret’s Marianne Lethbridge said the event was a lovely day, blessed with beautiful weather.
“It is probably the nicest and best attended event that we’ve put on here,” she said.
“I’ve often found dressing up is something people enjoy.”
Bastille Day has become somewhat of a tradition at the vineyard in the past four years.
“We started off trying to offer occasions that weren’t offered in the local area previously,” Ms Lethbridge said.
“We wanted to bring something new in based on culture. We’ve listened to the community’s needs.”
The Bastille Day event attracted people from as far as Maryborough and Bargara.
