Scrumptious treats harvested for festival
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.
