FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I Volunteer?
We do need a limited number of volunteers to work on both Saturday and Sunday. We also are looking for a few volunteer sommeliers to help the wineries out. A full shift gets you free admission for that day. If you are interested, email us at [email protected].
You get a glass to keep, which means unlimited wine and beer sampling. (For those new to wine tasting, these are tasting-sized pours so you get to try a lot of different wines safely.) Water, coffee, and sample nibbles. All the fascinating main-stage presentations. Live Music each day. Please note that food and boutique products are for sale once inside the event.
What’s included in the designated driver admission?
You pretty much have the exact same Fest experience as your friends, except you do not receive a tasting glass nor do you get a wristband that enables you to drink alcoholic beverages. If you are caught drinking out of a friend’s glass, security will escort you out of the event and your money will not be refunded.
Can I buy the wines I taste and love?
YES! Most wineries will be selling from their websites, and many will be offering special deals just for Fest attendees. Wines are not legally allowed to be sold on-premise, and security guards will confiscate any bottles being walked out of the Fest. Sorry – those are the laws.
