About this Event

2020 EVENT UPDATE

Passport Community –

We are always in awe of our Dry Creek community – 65 wineries, 125 grape growers – 100% of which are family owned. We all came together (over Zoom) and confirmed that for the first time in 31 years, we will be skipping a year of Passport to return in 2021. Between the rush of harvest in the fall, the uncertainty of when we will be able to travel again, and most of all, everyone’s safety, we will wait one year to come together for our annual celebration of our community. As spring opens up and another vintage begins the journey to bottle, I am reminded of why we share the promise of our harvest and our family traditions during Passport and am confident that we will be more eager than ever to host and share our exceptional wines and awe-inspiring beauty with you in 2021.

Our winery community also wanted to offer our Passport attendees a special and exclusive thank you for your support of Passport and Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley, which is 90% reliant on Passport tickets for funding that supports our mission to promote, protect and preserve the Dry Creek Valley wine community. Our wineries have put together offers, discounts, invitations to reserve tastings at the link below as a THANK YOU to our attendees and to also encourage you to visit us (when safe) – or order some great wine to your house – without having to wait a whole year. Ticket holders – keep an eye on your email for a special link to these offers.

HERE’S THE DETAILS: Passport 2021 – April 24 + 25

  • 2-Day and Sunday ticket holders – your tickets will be automatically transferred to 2021 with your chosen starting winery position. There is nothing you need to do.
  • Add-on events: Prelude Lunch, Vintage Soiree, Vineyard Tours, Uncorked Sessions and Designated Driver tickets will be refunded. We will be working in the back half of the year to reschedule these events and tickets can be purchased again when they go on sale in November for the event in 2021.

Thank you!

How Passport Works

The Weekend:

When you purchase your Passport ticket you'll first select whether you want a 2-Day Passport or a Sunday Only ticket. Next you'll select a "Check-In" winery. This is where you'll receive your wine glass, Passport booklet, wristband for the entire weekend. 2-Day Passports only need to check-in once on Saturday. After that, you're free to explore any of the participating Passport wineries in Dry Creek Valley. We strongly recommend planning out your routes ahead using our Itinerary Planner to maximize the fun over your weekend! Each winery has their own unique Passport style, truly something for everyone.

2-Day Passports: $150 (plus sales tax & ticketing fees)

Sunday Only Passports: $92.50 (plus sales tax & ticketing fees)

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Passport is a 21+ event. Be prepared to show identification at each winery. No exceptions. No babies (even in a carrier) or children. Service dogs only on event weekends.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Passport to Dry Creek Valley does not provide shuttles or transportation between wineries during the weekend. It is your responsibility to drink responsibly; limit the amount of wine you taste by swirling, sniffing, sipping and spitting like the pros. Hydration stations are provided at each of the wineries.

There are a variety of transportation companies in the area, but they do book quickly! Please plan ahead to schedule a personal driver or add a Designated Driver ($50 p/day) ticket for someone in your group. The WDCV does not provide a Driver for you with the Designated Driver ticket. Note that as an event, we do not accept buses/limos that hold more than 24 people. However not all wineries can accommodate buses and limousines so please refer to your Passport Booklet to be sure. Parking will be available at each winery.

What's the refund policy?

Passports tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, however all tickets will be listed under the Purchasers Name. The attendee will need to know this information to check-in.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
