I wore I wore a crossbody bag (a backpack works, too) to keep my hands free for balancing food nibbles and wine!.

I went with a group of friends. It was an outdoor setting. There were plenty of wineries showcasing wines and plenty of samplings.

Not enough food to balance the amount of acolhol folks were drinking other than that I enjoyed it!

I guess I had expected more from the festival - music, a larger space, and better wineries. I did not feel so bad at the end of it all because Goldstar made it possible for me to go to this festival at a great price.
