*WHINE ALERT* Today, I participated in the Wicked Wine Run “Galveston.” I use air quotes because the run actually takes place at Haak Vineyards & Winery in Santa Fe, Texas. My friends and I decided to do the 1K Tasting Run, which included “four wine tasting stops around the beautiful Haak Vineyards.” Again, I’m using air quotes.
*INSERT ANNOYING BUZZARD* Wrong!!
Disappointment doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt about the 1K at the Wicked Wine Run. So, first off the 1K was supposed to start at 6 p.m. We didn’t officially start walking until around 6:20 p.m. Second, there were THREE not FOUR tasting stops and at these stops we were given little communion size cup samples of wine. Now, wait a minute! I thought we were supposed to be wine tasting along this trail?! *scratches head* The tasting stops included a dry Rosé, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. None of the wines really stood out to me. The Cab was okay…nothing to rave about. So, as I mentioned we started walking around 6:20 p.m. and we’re literally done within 10-15 minutes. I swear it took the organizers longer to get in place to begin the walk than it did to actually walk the course. I understand that a 1K is not long, but damn Gina!! By 6:45 p.m., we were back on the shuttle to return to our cars.
The Wicked Wine Run is a waste of money! I can’t believe I paid $30 to drive all the way to Santa Fe and I have three sips of wine. I could’ve gone to HEB got the same samples for FREE…smh. If the Wicked Wine Run comes to your city don’t even bother!! I feel like I had more fun before the IK started, here are some pictures…
