SORRY, NO REFUNDS; but tickets are transferable to other people for the same event. We never cancel our events for any reason, even cold or snow.
All 23 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 TICKET 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 6 HOST/TICKET PICK-UP WINERIES FOR THIS EVENT:
When a host 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.
ATTENTION LARGE GROUPS:
We reserve the right to limit the number of large groups purchasing tickets for our events. Please consider coming on either Friday or Sunday, as large groups will get much better attention on these days. Groups of 8 or more must call each winery several days before the event to make reservations.
Traveling in very large groups on event Saturdays is not recommended.
SOME WINERIES WILL NOT ACCEPT GROUPS OF 8 OR MORE ON EVENT SATURDAYS. PLEASE BOOK LARGE GROUPS ON FRIDAY OR SUNDAY.
