Attendees of one of Orange FOOD Week's signature events, Forage, made their merry way through vineyards and orchards on Saturday.
About 1500 people walked from station to station, sipping, tasting and chatting, as the ninth year of Forage delivered a fun paddock to plate experience.
Amy Gojnich from Sydney attended the sold out event for the third time.
She said for the past few years she had recruited a group of high school friends to join her for the FOOD Week event.
"The way they lay it out is just perfect - the right amount of food, the right amount of wine and great views," Miss Gojnich said.

Speaking to the Central Western Daily from station three of eight, she said Swinging Bridge's 2018 tempinot had been the "heavy hitter of the day so far".
"It's a beautiful wine and completely worth coming to Orange for," she said.
Miss Gojnich said her party of six were staying at an Airbnb on Saturday night and were planning on heading out to the pubs after Forage.
She said she hoped FOOD Week helped spread the message that "Orange is a beautiful place."
"I think the whole festival is a great initiative to let people know about it - it's a great excuse to drive up here."
The group sampled food and wine from some of the regions best producers and restaurants including Groundstone Cafe, See Saw Wine, Strawhouse Wines, Highland Heritage, Orange Mountain Wines, Heifer Station, the Village Bakehouse, Philip Shaw Wines, Swinging Bridges, Franklin Road Preserves, Zinga Wines, Pioneer Brewing and Small Acres Cider.
