I agree with the previous reviewer--for the price, the wine selection and quantity was disappointing. The people pouring wine kept saying "just a sip"--for $25 there were four tickets--one ticket per 'sip', which was four sips! Add that to the quality of the wine (Yellowtail Shiraz and similar), and clearly this was not a 'wine' event as advertised. Charge $10 and forget the wine (and standard, run-of-the-mill wine glass). This was the first year, so next year might be better. The food and music were good, so the event has some potential, but the wine aspect should be seriously improved or dropped altogether (with a concomitant lowering of price).
Highly Disappointed! Magnolia, Reggae & Wine sounds like a home run event.Very disappointed: Wine "tastings" wait line is highly offensive to wine drinkers / winos. Why would you say "wine" in your title if you are going to serve it to us like children. Give us one full glass and be done with it. Second, and most important is your event area size and ratio to people coming to your event. Give up the entire field so we aren't crammed into a picnic area with thousands of people. Third, So we are crammed into this area with bad wine, long vendor lines(ran out of "jerk" chk) & People with CASH were able to jump ahead in line because ticket holders were not important enough since we bought them ahead of time.Our family of 4 spent over $60 compared to other Reggae event which is $10 per vehicle. Its is the same amount of music time for both events but huge difference in quality.We love Magnolia & we are annual ticket holders but your event didn't do Magnolia justice.My wife and I were so disappointed(She loves reggae and LOVES wine.
I don't think the 1-4 PM event, the "Family Friendly Beer Fest" is still scheduled.
This event is now at Prohibition, 547 King St. every Sunday from 6 to 10pm! https://www.facebook.com/HotJazzSwing
