Primal, Napa - September 2011
We went last year and had a great time.....If you're a BBQ foodie and enjoy micro brew and some great wine....Then this is the place. Not to mention the crowd was casual. We will be getting VIP tickets this year as it gives access to seafood and some other drinks. I hear this year it will be at a bigger venue Charles Krug winery.
I was there last year. Younger casual, monied crowd. Great wine and food vendors that happily answered any and all questions. The food was the best EVER, Alembic had some bourbon infused with rosemary drink, and there was one or two microwbrews and lots of wine!
- This particular day was WELL over 100 degrees! (not the fault of the orgainzer)
- There is precious little seating and ever less shade. I would have liked to see a bunch of picnic tables were you could site with your food and drink instead of standing for 5 hours.
- Only a couple cold water stations were available.
- Many of the wine vendors did not prepare to keep their wine at a drinkable temp. Warm white wine is nasty.
- No music.
Would I go again? In a heart beat!
