Ticket Instructions

*Choose to start at any participating winery and select the appropriate number of tickets.  In order to ensure a smooth check-in, spread out the traffic on the trail and to not overwhelm wineries at the start of the event, we have limited the number of tickets for each “start” choice.  If your preferred start is not available, choose an alternate and you can visit that one later.  Wine tasting at all participating wineries is included with purchase of event ticket.


Food is not part of your ticket price. It may be available for purchase separately or there may be complimentary small bites at participating wineries – please check the activities for each winery. You are encouraged to bring a picnic or snacks to wineries that allow outside food.

Rain or Shine

Note, this event is rain or shine.  Refunds will not be given due to weather.  Wine Tasting and all the activities the wineries are planning do not require sunshine.  Use caution while driving, put on your rain coats, bring umbrellas and good shoes and get ready to have fun no matter the weather!

Toy Drive

Bring a new, unwrapped toy to your starting winery and you are on your way to a great holiday!
