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

Arrived about 1pm and it was already in full swing. Lot's of wine to taste and try, some good food trucks and worth the experience. We paid for the extra boutique wineries and were glad we did. Definitely some nice wines in there. Only issue...continued

There were definitely less wine vendors than previous years. Also, there was a sunglass vendor and a glam squad vendor which made this seem more of a shopping event than a true wine tasting experience than past L.A. Winefest's.

The cheese...continued

This year was at a new location which was more difficult to get to as it was held at a location in a busier part of Hollywood. The number of wineries that participated seemed to be the lowest of any of the ones I attended (I've attended the past 4...continued

2016 WineFest was held in a parking lot and later in the day, 3-7pm. This could have been a disaster if the weather had not cooperated as it was only 82 and a slight breeze was blowing. Also, the shadow of the building next door kept it cool....continued

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

Parking was easy in the studio parking lot. Check-in was a breeze. All the volunteers were having a good time and it showed in their great attitude. Better layout this year (6/2015). More vendors up front. This gave the event some breathing...continued

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

Very crowded. Long lines for each winery. Where to park was not mentioned. Too expensive for what it was

Such a great event! We got there on time and had plenty of time to roam the booths without any lines. Towards the end it got a little more crowded but overall we have plenty of options and it was really fun. Would definitely go again.
