Too crowded, long lines to taste the wine. I was there with my boyfriend for about an hour, only got to 3 wines. Music was too loud, lots of "crafty" things for sale. I have been to other tastings that were elegant and we really were able to...continued

An okay selection of wine but overall poor quality. I felt the music was a little inappropriate for the crowd and thought that more effort could of been put into the decor. Rate this event as average but would not go again.

I was very disappointed to find very few wineries, and few representatives who knew enough about the wines they were pouring--a few could not even pronounce them. I did taste a couple of nice wines, but in all, the event was so small and so...continued

It was ok. A good representation of wines from different countries, There should have been more food available to either purchase or free.

The layout of this event was very informal with different types of wine lining the walls and different goods sellers throughout the middle of the room. There was great variety and although there were a lot of people there, it was not too...continued

Great fun. An awesome venue with plenty of space for all. Short waits to get to the different wines. Would definitely do it again.

The Wine Festival was a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon. The quality of the wines were a bit mediocre--tastings were of wines that would be described as "everyday" or "bargain" bottles. It would have been nice to have been able to nice to...continued

Great event, and fantastic selection of wines. There wasn't an overwhelming amount of winery's, so it allowed everyone to sample almost every bottle there (if you wanted).

My husband & I had a great time at this event. My husband even found a new favorite wine! There was a huge selection of wines to sample and plenty of other interesting vendors. I would definitely recommend attending

Not what I thought it was going to be. Big crowed room with tables lined up against the walls. All low end wines I would not buy for any reason. Pours were tiny. Will not go back. Airbrush tatoos and jewlery were the two nice things about this...continued

The event was okay. There were long lines to enter the venue and the check-in process could have been more organized. The assortment of wines were good, but I did not taste anything that was fantastic and I am no wine snob.

The servers of the wine were not wine experts which I thought would be part of the festival. Learning about the wines is part of the reason to attend this type of event.

This was a great opportunity to sample a wide variety of labels. Special thanks to those vendors who suggested where you can find their product. I would have given 5 stars if I didn't have to re-use the same cup all night. Wish there were more...continued

Will call did not open until noon which also was the starting time of the event. The organizers were very rude when we mentioned we had been waiting in line for 25 minutes. They only said sorry they were doing the best they could. The best they...continued

worst wine tasting experience> vendors were not friendly, they treated people like we were attending the event for free. people were not informed at the entrance to get your own cup. some vendors closed their lines early.
