It’s been a little over six weeks since the music, food and wine “feastival”, Rootstock 2017, blew the cobwebs off Pommard and welcomed the Summer good times with supersonic style. With Harvest approaching, and the singing of awesome tunes still ringing in our ears, we wanted to take a look back while the memory is still fresh in our ears, eyes, minds and mouths, at some of our top highlights from our very first rock and jazz festival. What were yours?
