After waiting in a long line to get into the "wine tasting," once we got inside there were more long lines. We tried to wait in a couple of different lines, which weren't moving at all. After about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, we left without tasting any wine or sampling any of the food that was supposed to be there (but we didn't see any food that wasn't for sale).

I did not attend this event - I bought it for a friend. He said that he would never attend this event again - even if he had free tickets! Very unorganized and very long lines. Was not worth the money spent on the Groupon.

I was extremely dissapointed in this winefest. I was hoping to try some new mass vineyards which I would visit in the future but instead got long lines and annoying crowds. The set up the wine tastings was awful. We waited anywhere between 20 and 50 mins just to taste from one vineyard. It did not make the experience fun or enjoyable. We became frustrated after 3 vineyards that we left and didn't even try all of them. I would have been even more dissapointed if we had paid the full price for these tickets. After buying this groupon, I got 5 other couples to purchase it as well and all were as dissapointed as us. I will never go to this wine festival again.

The event seemed very unorganized. While I understand attendance is important, there were too many people for the space and configuration.

They were not prepared for such a large crowd. Lines to get in and to taste were WAY too long. Servers catered to just a few people at a time, leaving long lines of people waiting. They should have pulled in groups of 8 or 10 at a time, poured a sample down the line while giving their spiel, then immediately started on the next wine. Also, food was advertised but was pretty limited.

Awful, awful, awful - venue was bad, too many people not enough vendors or helpers to serve wine. Should have given folks a free pass on the band and vendors should have let people try wine without a "huge" explanation to get lines going. Many angry people.

I was very disappointed in the wine festival. It was very overcrowded and the lines were very long. The group that I was with decided to leave early, Because it became very frustrating and we missed a lot of the vineyards. Maybe for next year they can turn it into a weekend Affair so there's not too many people in one day. The lines were so long you could not enjoy the tasting and talk to the workers about the wine. Just very disappointing to travel all that way from out id state, and stay for not even two hours.

The wine tasting was poorly organized and was totally over-sold. Every line was at least an hour wait in a building which was very hot and uncomfortable.

Not well planned out at all. No flow to the lines, waited in line for one hot hour to get a tiny sample of wine. Too many people, all frustrated and angry. Music was too loud. Really not well thought out. Left after two hours and only sampling four wines from two vineyards. Could not even spend time talking about buying wines because the lines were so long and people so upset. Poor planning equated to a serious waste of time. They knew how many tickets were sold! Horrible event.
