A Wine Festival

Wine Festival

YES!!  I had the pleasure of attending a wine festival this year with one of my girlfriends and how lovely it was.  I’d never been to a wine festival before and was a little excited as to what was might lie ahead.

Well, I can tell you WINE IS DEFINITELY EVERYWHERE!!  So make sure you eat a double cheeseburger and fries before you attend one of these shindigs, people!

This particular wine festival was being held on the grounds of an estate and tents were set up all around it.  Most of the tents had different vendors from various places selling bottles of their assorted wines and giving away free tastings of them all.  So—WHOA!  That’s at lot of wine going down your insides.  There were also other tents that were selling and giving away free tastings of different snacks of food—and you know I had no problem trying them ALL!

When we first arrived, we had to get wrist-banded so the vendors would know we were at least 21 years of age!  First things first, you know.  Then we were given our very own personal wine glass to enjoy all the tastings.

I’ll tell you—the lines to some of the tents were RIDICULOUSLY LONG!  I couldn’t believe how long we stood in one line just for a tasting!  So needless to say, we opted to go to tents with shorter lines—which were few and far between.  I mean, we stood in one line for 35 minutes at one tent just waiting our turn for a tasting!

And OH, I found a coffee cake tent!!  HEAVEN!!  And pumpkin coffee cake at that.  It was so amazingly good I had to buy a whole one just for myself to take home.  I swear I’m going to stalk this company and order more throughout the year.

In the end, all the food and drink tastings were awesome and I came home with one bottle of sweet red wine, one bottle of sweet white wine, pumpkin coffee cake, and a big jar of yummy apple butter.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, attend the next wine festival you can find in your town.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  If you don’t eat a double cheeseburger and fries ahead of time, you won’t be able to make your way around to all your rounds of wine tastings like you want to—if you catch my drift.

  1. She enjoys wine, but hates/love the fact I don’t drink. Lol. She hates it because she doesn’t have a drinking buddy at home, but loves it because men from her country have issues with drinking. With me not drinking, her mum loves that.

  2. I know Wine Festivals have admission prices that intimidate me 😀 that’s why I never tried it. I don’t know. I may not mind the long lines for free tastes. 😀

  3. HI There LFFL- Sounds like me and my husband when we were in line for the new iPhone 6 plus waiting. I’m glad you had a great time in experiencing the wonderful wines that were offered. Especially that PUMPKIN COFFEE CAKE YUMMY!

  4. a wine fest sounds lovely–good for you! Forgetting if you were around for my latest posts–my husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at a Bourbon Fest in Kentucky. Definitely a good time. And am with you about the food being an important part of these drinking events 😉

    1. Oh, Liz! That’s awesome for your anniversary! Happy 20 years to you!!! 🙂 No, I haven’t been around lately but am planning to catch up with everyone best I can here soon. I hate when life gets so busy my blogging gets behind. Will catch up soon. I bet the Bourbon Fest was fun for you both. That definitely sounds like something I’d attend! Maybe I’ll see you there sometime. 😉

  5. Living in wine country (the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon), some kind of wine, beer, cheese or chocolate festivals seems to happen almost every weekend. Moderation is definitely called for. 🙂 –Curt
