Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

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.
