Avoca River Wine Festival today. Wine enthusiasts were able to browse through the great wineries of the Pyrenees. Fantastic event.
4.5 tonnes picked over two days. Excellent flavour in the berries. Can’t wait to taste the wine. Loud and crazy picking crew, singing and laughing their way through the vine rows.
