Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

FLAVOURS of the Childers re­gion have tempted the taste­buds of food lovers at the an­nual Bundy Flavours event.

Mammino’s, Hill of Prom­ise Win­ery and Vint­ner's Se­cret Vine­yard rep­re­sented the re­gion strongly at the week­end fes­ti­val.

Mammino’s co-owner Teena Mammino said the event was great for her business.

“It was re­ally, re­ally good for us,” she said.

Hill of Prom­ise co-owner Mary Byrne said her business had a “rea­son­ably suc­cess­ful” day at the Bundy Flavours event.

Mrs Byrne said it was a lit­tle dis­ap­point­ing that the food and wine stalls were sep­a­rated at the event.

“But gen­er­ally speak­ing, it was a suc­cess­ful day for us,” she said.

Mrs Byrne said the day was also a good net­work­ing day with other stall hold­ers.

“We got to know what else is in the culi­nary cir­cle in Bund­aberg,” Mrs Byrne said.

She said the event ti­tle was an apt de­scrip­tion of what the day was all about.

“It’s about show­cas­ing what’s on of­fer in our re­gion,” she said.

Vint­ner's Se­cret Vine­yard co-owner Mar­i­anne Leth­bridge said the event was a great suc­cess for her business.

“It’s quite re­ward­ing in a business sense be­cause you do sell a lot of wine,” Mrs Leth­bridge said.

“And it’s an ex­tremely use­ful way for the re­gion to know what’s inside it­self.”

Mrs Lethridge said she was able to meet like­minded com­mu­nity mem­bers and business peo­ple.

“You meet peo­ple who are pas­sion­ate and proud about what we do in this area,” she said.
