    Full disclosure: I’m a big wine guy and I always love the vineyard runs, so I am a bit biased on the three I did this year…

    So the “Twisted” part comes from the blends they make. Coffee, blackberry and jalapeno are among the choices. Don’t go expecting to discuss the subtleties of stainless-steel aging vs traditional Georgian pots. As the saying goes, “This ain’t that crowd.” For what it is, and I wish it were called something other than wine, because I think it would get more love, it actually is very good. The crowd it IS, is a crowd that’s having fun, both at the race and the times before and after. Moreso “after” probably, because by then we’ve had a few glasses in us. The venue is great. There’s a firepit, they have a party bus. Volleyball court. Concerts and hot air balloon rides. It’s THAT kind of crowd. Come with the right headspace and you’ll have a blast.

    Being a wine guy, I always find particular beauty and peace racing in the vineyards, so while I find the scenery top notch, I accept your mileage may vary there. That said, I DO believe the course was a touch short. I followed everyone in front of me and finished a 5k 3 minutes earlier than expected. Let’s just say I wasn’t that motivated or egotistical to claim that as my new PR.

    The swag is the same 5k Wine Run swag you get for all their races. It changes year to year but it’s the same at every Wine Run. I have three of the same medals from this year, but I knew it’d be like that going into it, so if you’re not surprised, you’re not disappointed. I do wish they at least had the vineyard names on magnetic plates or something so there’d be some sort of inexpensive differentiation, but the 5k Wine Run people haven’t listened so far.
