TICKET DETAILS: Includes admission to each participating winery & souvenir wine glass. Ticket is good for both days. Choose your starting winery by selecting the ticket number that corresponds to your preferred starting point. Each winery has a limited number of tickets for participants to start. Therefore, you may not be able to start at your preferred location, but you can visit them later. You are required to begin your tour at the location on your ticket where you will pick up your glass and wrist band. Your ticket is good for both Saturday and Sunday which will allow you to visit all of the wineries. Once you have received your glass, you can visit wineries in any order.
ADVANCE TICKET SALES: $30 tickets are available until Midnight on 7/31. Just choose your starting winery and select the appropriate number of tickets. We aim to spread folks out amongst the participating wineries at the start of the event so that no one winery is overcrowded, so we limit the number of "start at" tickets available in advance. If you see "Sold Out," it just means that the alloted amount of tickets for starting at that winery have been sold. You would need to choose another winery with tickets still available for your starting point, but can then visit any and all of the wineries in any order you choose for the rest of your tour.
DAY OF TICKETS: After 7/31, the ticket price goes up to $40/person. These are available for online purchase through Sunday 8/4 and enable you to start your tour at any participating winery of your choice.
