Wine Festival- Dunkirk, NY

Yum
I decided to give you all a glimpse of the fun we have been having in the last few weeks. Thanks to a dear friend of mine we had FREE tickets to the Wine Festival this year! It has been a few years since we attended this event but it if one that I have to say, I really enjoy & love!
Our tickets included these awesome bags which hold 6 bottles of wine & a tasting glass. Luckily in my part of WNY we are blessed with wine trials.
 So many wineries, hard to hit them all in one trip. This festival is such a great way to try out local wineries at once!
This year they housed two huge buildings full of wineries & products to try to and taste test. They even had photo props areas which we just so happened to take advantage of.
Lots of interesting items for sale. 
I have to say the creative ideas of vendors never stop amazing me.
I loved all the wineries this year. I have some favorite local wineries I loved trying new ones that I had never seen nor heard of. I also enjoyed the wine slushies! If you enjoy wine then you can appreciate the feeling when you find a new one you absolutely love.
They even served FREE Gumbo & dessert! 
Living more & Spending less, CHEERS!

  2. That look like fun. We have beer festivals here but you have to pay for everything, not very fun at all.
