Fun and Friendship at the North Canterbury Wine and Food Festival
21 March 2018
A very successful start to the NZMCA taking part in the North Canterbury Wine Festival. 21 vans staying three nights and the numbers peaked at 30 on the day of the festival. The weather was superb over the whole weekend especially Sunday being the festival day. Wine maker Scott Berry from Waipara Downs to come and talk with our group on Saturday late afternoon. Scott was very informative giving us a very good idea of the quality of wine grown in Waipara and how diverse the region is. He gave us a taste of an excellent 2007 Waipara Downs Chardonnay. Two photo’s one of Scott talking to us and a group other of motor vaners enjoying the festival. The feed back is we will be back next year with more friends in their vans. This was a very well run event congratulations to the Waipara community.
