Local band Colours made the ambience lively.

Unlike the past when wine makers of other Northeastern states had attended the events, this year’s edition focused on local wine makers.

Syiem said that after following up for several years, the government legalised wine making in 2020 which is a welcome step and encouraging.

The free movement of visitors was visible on Saturday post Covid period compared to 2020.
