Ever imagine a place where everywhere you walk there’s a booth serving wine? No? Maybe? Well that was this year’s WineFest at the Mohegan Sun. Reds, whites, chocolate, sparkling, sweets and dry wines everywhere you turned. It was an amazing experience and those who attended would agree. Along with wines there was a tequila, Kahlua, Rum and Gin booth for those who wanted something stronger. The Mohegan Sun put together a great event that spanned for 3 days. Just think, wine, gambling and food. Yes, yes and yes wont you agree?
Overall great experience, and if you have the opportunity next year to go, you should.
