Ticket holders provide their own transportation and choose their own itinerary, visiting the wineries in any order. One winery is designated as the pick-up point for your event TICKET, a wine glass, a great gift, recipe booklet and a $5 voucher to spend on wine at any winery or on food at participating restaurants. These are all to be picked up any time DURING THE EVENT.
SORRY, NO REFUNDS; but tickets are transferable! We never cancel our events.
ALL 25 WINERIES are participating in this event.
You must be 21 or older to purchase tickets. Please remember to take your I.D. with you to each winery, as you will be carded at every stop along the way (especially if you look particularly youthful).
YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN HOST/PICK UP WINERY!
This is the winery where you will pick up your ticket and your gift bag at any time during the event hours.
TICKETS WILL NOT BE MAILED TO YOU AHEAD OF TIME. When you make your online ticket purchase, you need to click the down arrow to see the options for your ticket with a pick up locations of one of 6 Host Wineries. Choose the winery at which you'd like to pick up your ticket and gift bag, then complete your transaction. If you are also purchasing a Designated Driver Ticket, make sure you choose that same winery when you get into the Designated Driver Ticket list in the PayPal drop-down menu.
THERE ARE 7 HOST WINERIES FOR THIS EVENT:
When a winery becomes "full," it will disappear from the drop-down menu and you will not be able to select it. Pick up wineries are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you get your tickets late, you will have to select one of the remaining wineries. These can't be changed after the fact, so please make sure you know where your friends are going to pick up their tickets BEFORE you order.
DESIGNATED DRIVER TICKET:
Only $20 and includes everything except the wine tastings. A non-alcoholic beverage will be provided. This is for people who want to enjoy the event but do not wish to taste wine. NEW this year: the $5 voucher is added to the DD ticket at no extra charge! Friday and/or Sunday only DD tickets are the same price.
