Hello
We had a great time the only thing we thought was missing is that at the tasting tables the wineries should have had crackers or bread to take in between the tastings. Also, more places to sit and relax with your food and wine.
Otherwise,...continued

I have been attending the event for years. It has become way too crowded with long lines for wine tasting and the pours are very modest. This was not the experience we enjoyed in years past. While more attendees sounds good for organizers, for the...continued

It was my first time an it was awesome. The atmosphere was great, casually dress, the vendors was professional, if you had any questions about the wine they answered them with no problem, an it was a great experience.

The event was terrific. Learning about and sampling wines and eating from gourmet food trucks - what could be better?

The layout of this event was kind of akward. It did not have enough shade structure to rest and the music was blaring to loud at times. It was not as refined as I expected it to be. Selling purses and the food trucks was a little lower brow in my...continued

The venue was nice but the lines were too long....who wants to wait 20 minutes to taste wine and beer? The lunch truck foods were tasty and the other displays were fun to walk around but overall not worth the money....

There were maybe 3 vineyards well-represented. Nice volunteers, not enough seats, tight vendor areas that made it hard to discover the wine/wineries. It was at Raleigh Studios so some vendors should be stretched out with headsets to discuss the...continued

This is a two day event with local wineries and vendors selling various things like olive oils, cheeses and wine accessories. This year there seemed to be fewer wineries and no higher end wineries. A lot of the tastings were not good because the...continued

This was an excellent compilation of vendors representing, not only a plethora of vineyards and labels, but also wiskey/tequila brands, a cupcake bakery, cheese vendors, icelandic water and the like...plus there was an excellent selection of food...continued

Though I liked the overall experience, it would have been improved if it had been conducted in a larger area. Also, a greater variety of food trucks would have been nice.

VERY disappointed that all the food vendors were charging. Save for very, VERY limited samples (used to sell olive oil blends or wine)--there were no food vendors as this event which I felt was contrary to advertisements.

Although I think they should put a cap on attendance as it got extremely busy, we had a wonderful time. I found several new wineries/wines to fall in love with, all the vendors were very pleasant, and they had a good variety of food. I did not...continued
