So yesterday I attended the Great Grapes Wine Festival in Cary. It was interesting… not what I expected. I learned a few things yesterday…
- I don’t celebrate North Carolina wine. Nothing against it, but a majority of the wines I sampled were incredibly sweet. After about 30 minutes into the event I had enough samples because the wine was so sweet. In fact it gave me a headache. I’m not a fan of super sweet wines, I prefer a nice glass with dinner. I don’t think I’d be able to pair any of the wines I sampled with a meal.
- Putting kids on leashes just isn’t for the fair, but it’s also for wine festivals. I saw a kid being monitored by their parents at the beginning, but as the wine festival progressed I noticed the kid was then put on a leash. Maybe next time the parents should find a babysitter. I should also mention that the people watching is incredible.
I’m not sure if I’ll go back for next year’s wine festival.. I might try to hit up the Cuegrass Festival in downtown Raleigh.
