I had some qualms about the WineFest potentially being too crowded and wondered if I would get my money's worth of winetasting, but have to say that even though there were crowds--that they were quite manageable and NO long waits for wine samples. I was also impressed with the variety of wineries represented--many vintages that were not just available at the local supermarket. It would have been nice to have had more food samples--in addition to the gourmet foodie items for sale, but at least they were very reasonable and good quality which helped me feel not ripped off. I DO NOT think the fest would have been worthwhile moneywise at full price, but for the Goldstar half-price admission I would recommend the fest again for next year.
