Prepare to be wined and dined at the 2019 Donnybrook Food and Wine Festival this month.

In the 13th instalment of the South West town’s biggest annual celebration of the region’s fine wines and fresh produce, the organisers are promising their biggest yet.

What started as a group of producers coming together to put their best on display, has evolved into an event attended by thousands every year.

This year event organisers are introducing a marquee for people to enjoy local drops and some shade while exploring the festival offerings.
