$40 is an EXCELLENT deal for this event. 70 premier wineries, great restaurants and gourmet food samples...Where else do you get so much quality and variety for the price of a couple of drinks?

Plus, it shows the whiz-bang marketing MBAs at
their finest hour. A food and wine tasting is
highly unique -- innovative promotions like
this have hardly ever been done before. The
originality is absolutely stunning.

So we get to pay for their marketing? Seems like the 40 bux is only there so they can "qualify" future customers and weed out the less affluent.
You still have to stand at their counter and practically beg for samples and they treat you like you are asking for too much. I find it funny when the workers at these events are not rich yet they carry the same arrogance and snobbiness as their employers.

Price has gone up quite a bit the past few years though it is possible to make it worthwhile. You just need a plan - don't talk to the people pouring wine and move quickly, you can taste pretty much everything if you do that. And get quite full on the food too.
