Anyone been to the L.A. Wine Fest in past years? I just got an email about it from Goldstar events (it's July 12-13), I'll post the description below my message. Anyway, I'm wondering has anyone been to this before, how was it? Also, what does the cost of the ticket ($30 per day through Goldstar events, plus $4.50 service fee; regular price is $45 for one day or $80 for 2 days) include? Just admission, or admission and a certain number of wine tastings, or unlimited tastings and presentations? If anyone has any info on this event, please post it. Thanks!

The event promises to be a fantastic mélange of locals as well as visitors to the Hollywood area the perfect opportunity to plan a trip with friends or family to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime cultural experience.
