Review from Jennie B

It was a great venue, and plenty of wine options to try. There were mostly cheap wines which brought down the quality of the event. Additionally, the catering by D'amico and Sons was minimal: cheese trays. I expected more appetizers from the...continued

Venue was good as it was big enough to move around. Wines were of average quality which brought down event a little. Would have been nice to have a better mix of what was there and higher end wines. Food was okay, but mostly cheese so...continued

Review from rowdy

It was enjoyable. I really like tasting new wines and the food was tasty. There are less wines to taste and less vendors which was of concern and this created longer lines. I remember a couple of years ago they gave out a free wine glass, free...continued

Review from Laura Abrams

A little crowded, but good value with the discounted ticket price. The wine samples were pretty generously poured, and the D'Amico snacks were good (although there was a really long line for the food).

Serious disappointment again. Yes, again. Same issues as the last few times I've gone (This my tenth or eleventh Cities Wine Tasting is my last) There were substantially fewer wines than usual. In fact, some wine distributor tables were empty...continued

Review from Thomas Troy Veldhouse

Food was as described, but the line filled fast. Unlike other reviews, there was no shortage. Wine tasting was great with many options to taste and affordable in price. Great experience.

I was quite surprised to see MGM sponsoring the event as it wasn't advertised as a sales promotion. That being said, as an event planner, I was very pleased to see Cannon River Winery in attendance as they were very knowledgeable about wines. I...continued

Super fun event! Tons of wines and ever beer to try. Stayed until the end and the food and drinks kept coming. Dress was pretty casual. Will definitely go again!

Review from Jon Konopa

The wine selections were good. Most of the volunteers didn't know much details of the wines that were displayed. The venue was darkly lit so it was tough to see the names of the wines and read the cumbersome checklist they gave out at the...continued

There were several vendors that weren't very friendly. There was less ranges in wine from last year.
