Gisborne Wine and Food Festival turns 20
TWENTY years ago local winemakers opened their cellars for the first Gisborne Wine and Food Festival. Annie and James Millton, who own Millton Vineyard, started the festival alongside a small number of other wineries. “It helped bring fun into the hard work that goes into creating a wine,” Mr Millton said. On Monday, tickets will once again go on sale for the festival taking place on October 22 and 23. However, this year’s Labour Weekend event will be unique.
