Good music, very upbeat, and wines were ok. But really fun experience and would do it again.
Great venue with fantastic music and wine. Very enjoyable day and event was not oversold like many!
Beautiful location, but very limited selection of wines and food and wouldn't call the music bluegrass.
I wish it would have been more CO wines instead of wine distributors and more food trucks. It was still a good time. Hope this comes back again.
Nice location, but small and it was a very hot day. Not much shade. No theme to the wines, just a collection from various distributors. I appreciated most tasting the South African wines.
Awesome music and happy to have been a part of this inaugural event.
It was advertised as this big wine festival that had over 75 wines with 2 whole stages for bluegrass music-when in fact it was very small, only 10 tents there, 2 of which weren't even wine. They were all shoved in a parking lot that could maybe fit 8-9 cars at max. The bands were squeezed so close together on their "2 whole stages". There was only 1 food truck which served lobster rolls and one food person at a tent serving premade deli sandwiches when they advertised as if a bunch of food trucks were there.FALSELY ADVERTISED!!! Wish we could get our money back!
Liked it very much, my only issue is I couldn't purchase a bottle of wine at time of tasting.
Great wine selection.. Could use more food selection and a couple more porta potties next time
