Hundreds of people enjoyed the 10th anniversary Gibbston Food and Wine Festival in Queenstown Gardens on Saturday.

Organiser Pip Norton said about 1500 people attended, including 900 paying customers.

A change of format had worked well, she said.

Stalls were laid out in a curve around a pond rather than sprawling out in a long line.

"There was amazing food, obviously we've got fantastic wine and the music was just stunning.''
