The people of Mt. Airy deserve better from your establishment. The roads are unsafe after your reggae festival - 3 dui arrests and a car rolling over at your winery........ imagine if the accident happened an hour earlier and rescue vehicles could not get in to the winery do the extreme amount of traffic and cars parked on the side of Glissens Mill. Why are my tax dollars along with everyone else in Mt. Airy doing traffic control utilizing Frederick County Sheriffs. If they were not directing traffic for your winery, there probably would have been more DUI arrests. Last year there was a horrible accident and there were children in the vehicle. What responsibility do you hold in all this? How can you serve alcohol and let people leave under the influence? It is your responsibility as local business in the community to help keep our roads safe.

in response to pj's review first of all it is not the responsibility of the winery to remind adults that they need to be responsible for their own actions. The winery provides a service and if grown adults can not go to these events and have a DD or know the limit then shame on them. It is not the winery's fault some people just don't know how to act in public and you can not place the blame on the winery.


Blamegame says...
Most bussinesses have to pay for service such as extra police and traffic direction not tax payers. So since you have been shelling out tax dollars with no educated clue on where it goes i would suggest not blaming an event that you dont care for for wasting your tax dollars as a way to blame the establishment. DUI and accidents are never good but are you going to blame the wine makers for letting the grape ferment into wine and beer makers for every alcohol related crime. When it is the responsibility of the consumer to hold them selves and friend accountable.

Bru says...
NEVER have been to the Wine Festival, probably NEVER will (because of the traffic) Don't care who directs traffic, Don't care who pays for it. The Steeple Chase Red wine is out of this world !!! (This coming from a beer drinker for many,many years) Thank-you Linganore !!!!
