The wine fest sounds like a lot of fun! I would love to have my own small vineyard one day.

that would be awesome....if you did I'd have to be allowed free wine tastings and if I get anywhere with my music you can have free concert tickets;)

It is! :) Some of the more expensive events I'm sure would be a lot of fun too, but at this point we yearly just go to the tastings which are still awesome :)

There's usually like 300 wines, never enough time to taste them all in three hours. Graham and I when it's just him and I, can usually get through about 30-40 in that time period :) I think with our friend Jason tagging along this year it will be a bit more :) The key is get a small group of friends, if it's too large it won't work, but a small group who doesn't mind sharing different sides of a glass, each goes into a different line to get a pour, then everyone can reunite and each steal a small sip from each person's glass ;)
