We bought 2 VIP tickets, at $150 each, to this September 28th event. DH regrets the VIP ticket purchase, stating "we could have bought a case of wine for the extra cost." We had predominately standing room only in the VIP tent section. One other wine club member, who attends annually, stated the "VIP tickets were oversold this year." That appeared to be the case with few tables and limited sofa setting areas and many people standing. I personally enjoyed the VIP experience once seating was available, only after another couple left their seats. And, I enjoyed the free wine tasting, the appetizer platters, paella tastings, convenient valet parking and particularly the well-appointed gift bags VIP's received at the end of the event. I would do the VIP pass and get DH a regular ticket next year! Even he agrees the food -- the whole experience -- was wonderful and educational!

This is specifically a review of Kendall Jackson's anual Heirloom Tomato Festival they hold each September on their property in Fulton. The wife and I joined their wine club earlier this year and were excited to book our timeshare right up the road and join friends to experience this event. We were blown away at the emence size of the event....I would guess 3 to 4 thousand strong crowds....many many restaurant and specialty food vendors with top chefs competing for top honors creating foods with tomatos. We spent all afternoon sampling fantastic wines and foods to the point of misery. Our guests are in agreement that we want to make this a yearly pilgamage as they do a fantastic job here......thanks KJ.

We were late arriving at the winery. So everything was a rush. However, we were able to get in and taste some wines.

Friendly atmosphere, great service, nice tour, and great wine. Oh yeah, nice building! I ended up buying a $125/bottle red wine. Will definitely come back for a longer visit.

I've always loved KJ wines. We did the tasting - with Frank- what a nice man! He was very informative about the wines, very educational. We tasted alot of the wines - all very good. The estate wines were fablous and we ended up joining the wine club. The grounds and building are beautiful. Looking forward to being a KJ wine club member.
