Almost half of the vendors left halfway through the event. It was very disappointing and seemed more like a trade show than a night out. I will not be attending again.

Expect a wide range "tasters" there, from those who are serious to those who are there just to "sample" as much wine as possible. You can learn about a variety of wines, grapes, and areas from many of the representatives. Some of the food stations are more like troughs, so you might want to get a small bite prior to entering. Obviously, the VIP tasting has a few less tasters and there are many, many vendors broken down into two physical areas, domestic and foreign. Definitely check out the Pennsylvania Wine & Spirits area!!

it was like being on a magic carpet stop at the worlds greatest wineries and enjoying some of the world's greatest wines. My only disappointment was the guy with brown haired perm and big glasses who worked at benton lane Table 1 who insulted me and put a drop of wine in my glass. I will never buy this wine again and I hope the others do the same. I hope the women he was filling glasses full for will buy their wine, not. Everything else was perfect except for this stooge.

Plan ahead. There are so many wineries represented, we downloaded the list and table numbers from the website to create our "must try" list. We tasted some WOWS. It made our experience all the more enjoyable.

From Our Editors

The Pittsburgh Wine Festival gathers more than 165 vendors who pour more than 500 diverse wines inside the Heinz Field East and West Club Lounges. Though many of the featured wines hail from countries such as France, Germany, Portugal, Argentina, and New Zealand, others call California, Pennsylvania, and the Pacific Northwest their home. As attendees wander between sips of reds, whites, and rosés, they sample food pairings and watch live entertainment.

Winery representatives and winemakers pour their diverse libations during the annual Grand Tasting, but also uncork specialty reserve wines at a VIP tasting. Here, smaller crowds grant visitors more time to speak with the vendors, and ask questions about fermentation or how to determine whether a wine will get along with their other bottles. Outside the main events, industry leaders also hold seminars on how to taste wine like a sommelier or pair wines to specific occasions. Additionally, private wine dinners raise funds for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
