In addition to the amazing wines you will taste, there are also numerous vendors set up in case you get hungry. In addition, there were also some unique gifts to purchase and exhibits to look at. In addition, there were specials run for bottles of wine that you could buy--I believe it was three for $18. A word of warning, though: bring a bag or some tape if you wish to buy some wine. We saw numerous people with broken bottles because the boxes were not strong enough.
If you feel like you need a break from all the wine, all you have to do is walk a few feet, and you will be looking out over the ocean. It is a magnificent view and makes for a wonderful day, drinking nice wine and taking in the background of yachts and the ocean. Don’t feel that this is a strictly adult event, either--there were quite a few children and more than one stroller seen during the day. In addition, a lot of companies rented out tables and catered a meal and wine for the day.
This was truly a relaxing and fabulous day; I would suggest it to anyone who is interested in wine or wishes to be.
