  1. I attended this festival. They really need to put some work into makeing it better. Too many tickets were sold and the inside area was actually so crowded it was unsafe. You could not maneuver to taste wines and if you bought wine you were not allowed to open it on the grounds...but you were not told this when you purchased the wine. All in all...a very poor execution of what could have been a great idea. I hope they get their act together next year. It was not worth the 4 tickets I purchased.
