Not to be a party pooper, but I have been in Livermore all my life, and I think this event is disruptive, and I have personally viewed intoxicated people getting in their cars and driving to the next winery. How does the police department or county deputies allow this to happen?

I'm sure I'm going to catch a lot of flack for this comment. I know the wineries bring people and jobs to the city, but is it going to take one of these intoxicated people killing someone before law enforcement step in? Where is MADD?

Well said, livnut!

I've seen the drunks get behind the wheel during this event, other wine-related events and when people go wine tasting for an afternoon/evening.

The wine enthusiasts aren't getting pulled over for DUI. Mayor Wente and co. would never let the all important revenue stream be interrupted.

My friends and I love having parties and tasting fine wines ( http://www.chaletpremier.com/ ) and foods that go with that particular wine. Hopefully we have never been a disturbance. But we try to keep it down.

Yeah I also know of some parents that will take wine and beer with them and their children trick-or-treating..Of course they are walking-not driving but still..it's public intoxication. But you never see cops stopping them.

It's only public intoxication if you drink too much!
