This year’s Riverland Wine and Food Festival attracted around 2000 locals and visitors. With 17 stallholders providing a range of Riverland wine, food, beer, cider and sangria, festival manager Kelly Wright said the event went “fabulously well”.
A bigger site provided a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, with less congestion for those at the event. Riverland wine producers reported business was brisk again at this year’s event. 919 Wines Eric Semmler said “The increased area inside the enclosure eased some of the crowd pressure at the stalls. The beautiful summer weather certainly brought the crowd and the shady trees and marquees were popular. We were very pleased with the event; it was good for business.”
There was a pronounced social media element at this year’s festival with the punters sharing photos throughout the day on Instagram and Facebook.
Congratulations to this year’s event organisers, sponsors, stallholders, volunteers and contractors who partnered in making the 2014 festival such a success. The Riverland Wine and Food communities can be justifiably proud of this year’s festival. Photos from the event can be viewed here
