  1. all i have to say if I were available that weekend i would be there. if YOU were to go, I would definitely get the VIP tickets and early access, it’s worth it. When you go during general times, it’s really crowded. With people getting more and more interested in wine, more people will be there.

  2. This looks like a great event! So gutted I don’t live near it.

  3. i would totally love to go. Looks like it will be great

  4. Sounds like a spectacular event. Wish we could be there.

  5. I look forward to attending! It sounds like a fun time with many wineries we have never visited before.:)

  6. I absolutely love these fabulous wine events that you give us access to!
    Thank you, Tom!


  7. Wow! What a great event you get to attend. What a great job you have.

  8. Wow, I love the bakery thing. Thank you for sharing
