Be prepared that some free samples could run out toward the end of the day. Why? The festival requires a certain amount of product from each of the participants to place them on a level playing field. For a variety of reasons, some samples appeal to the sampling appetites of many, and therefore run out faster - so there is a chance that the wine that "everyone is talking about" could probably run out prior to the end of the day
