Wine festival intoxicates Shillong

By The Assam Tribune

Shillong, Nov 14 (PTI): As many as 14 home-brewers from all over Meghalaya descended in this hill city to give wine enthusiast a unique opportunity to raise a toast to the ensuing chill in this unique festival held for the seventh consecutive time in the State.

Ginger, mulberry fruit, strawberry, passion fruit, blackberry, plum, banana, jackfruit or even cashew apple, name it and they have been fermented to produce a sensual variety of wine.

An all pervading passion descended at the Crinoline Swimming Pool here last night, the final day of the only-of-its kind festival, with people, including foreign tourists, thronging the place in hordes.

"The ginger wine we make is soothing to a soar throat and is appropriate for the cold climate in Shillong," said A Marbaniang, who has been fermenting wine in the backyard of her house in the city.
