Scrump­tious treats har­vested for fes­ti­val

Central Otago Mirror - - ENTERTAINMENT -

You don’t even have to like wine to en­joy the Clyde Wine and Food Har­vest Fes­ti­val be­cause the food is just as good. Cel­e­brat­ing its 10th an­niver­sary on Easter Sun­day, thou­sands of peo­ple poured into the town to en­joy plenty of lo­cal vino and sam­ple culi­nary treats such as manuka smoked eggs and Czech pan­cakes. The an­nual event is or­gan­ised by Pro­mote Dun­stan, with money raised as­sist­ing lo­cal com­mu­nity groups. Funds raised this year would go to­wards the Dun­stan Gold 150 year cel­e­bra­tions, the es­tab­lish­ment of a new viti­cul­ture award and some new signs for Clyde. The Aimee Wil­son caught up on all the ac­tion dur­ing the day.

The court­yard at Oliv­ers was the place to re­lax and en­joy some good food and wine.
