Amid crackling boma-fires and fairy lights, over 40 choice food and wine suppliers set up their tasting stations in the village streets.
The lounges, equipped with cosy couches and “kuier”-benches, were also well heated just in case the wines, whiskies and hot chocolate hadn’t already warmed up the visitors from the inside!
