Saturday June 9, 2012 / 2:00pm-6:00pm11th Annual LA WineFest
How was your experience?
Mostly cheap unknown wines being sampled by people who mostly drink cheap wine. Very crowded, but pleasant atmosphere despite the lack of seating or shade. Those without hats clearly roasted under the SoCal sun. The venue was good, but they should consider hanging a tri-wing or cargo parachute over one side of the property to provide some relief from the beating rays. Most vendors had dump buckets that some folks mistook for spittoons, but none had any sort of washout feature -- which everyone would benefit from being able to swish clean their glasses between tastings (perhaps via a simple water jug with press depressible pump -- making for many contaminated mixes. In some cases, however, this made the wine better. :)
