Rootstock – the annual wine party that celebrated everything from natural wine to sustainable agriculture – may have poured its last drinks, but fond memories of the festival live on.
Photographer James Broadway captured the festival in all its weird and wonderful splendour from its early days through to the most recent event in Sydney in 2017. Here he shares some of Roostock's highlights over its five years in existence along with a running commentary that illuminates the names, faces and happenings that made the event what it was.
