Locally produced wines and beers will be the star attractions at the majority of this year’s events.

“Where else could you enjoy unique and often quirky locations, with local provedores serving regionally produced food and wine, washed down with a glass of hinterland wines or local beers?” continued Festival Organiser Wendy Lacey.
