What a great way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The event appeared well organized and there was a wide selection of wineries. I enjoyed the cheese samples and live music too.

I have only a few complaints. As it was a hot sunny day, I...continued

This was a fairly expansive wine festival with food trucks, boutique-type retail booths, and other wine culture-related venders. Unfortunately, the narrow back-lot streets of Raleigh Studios made for a VERY claustrophobic and often frustrating...continued

SOOOO much fun! Got to sample a lot of really good wines. All the vendors were fun and easy to chat with. This is a new yearly tradition. Can't wait to go again!

We've attended winefest the past few years. Sadly, this might be the last. Way too many "lifestyle exhibitors" detracting from the wine flow. Definitely less wine vendors present. Decent selections, nice afternoon with friends & sunshine, just...continued

We weren't impressed with the vendors, the lines were super long they should have capped the people coming, other than Fancifull which I love there wasn't anything new or that was actually worth the money for admission.

Good Event. Good Variety of wines to sample. A few Spirits available for sampling as well. Plenty of food vendors available. Interesting Mix of "lifestyle" vendors - Didn't think it was appropriate to have Time Share Sales (and their High...continued

I went with a friend and we had the best time! Very generous portions of wine to taste, excellent wineries attended, and the food was great. I will definitely return!

We went on Saturday. Too crowded. We go to sample different wines and use this as an enjoyable educational experience with friends. With the throng of people attending and using this more of as a social gathering, it was difficult to talk with the...continued

I really enjoyed the wine variety that was offered at the festival. They offered food and other alcoholic beverage to break it up some. The parking garage across the street was great considering the street parking was limited. Will return.

Fun event aside from the very short pours of most wineries. Typically less than one ounce. Entry to the event was badly organized as well.

Way too crowded and impersonal. Not really a wine afficionado event at all. Also, very unappealing hardscape surroundings.

I have attended this event several times in the past. Each time it was crowded, but managable. This year the crowds were huge, and there was a long line to get to every booth serving wine. There was almost no food except for purchase at the...continued

I said the experience was O.K. because I went with GREAT friends and enjoyed their company. I will never go again. It was over crowded. The venders were packed together yet there was plenty of open space back where the food trucks were parked. ...continued
