What cheeses will the wineries be offering with their wine?
Details are being finalized now.
Will there be live music at this event?
Eleven winery will have live music on Saturday from 1-4pm, but others will not due to space limitations in the winery.
Can the wineries accommodate large groups?
Our wineries are very intimate (read small) and cannot adequately accomodate large groups. We ask that if you do have a large group, that you break up into smaller groups to visit the wineries.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Will we be offering a shuttle servive for this event for an additional $20. There will be two 18 passenger vans driving a loop between all the wineries and tasting rooms and attendees can get on and off at any shuttle stop. The shuttle will stop at each location approximately every 30 minutes. Tickets must be purchased in advance through our event page on Eventbrite.
