Plan to come with a full stomach. Food will be available but only as small bites or tastes.
We encourage you to come down early to have lunch at one of our fantastic restaurants.
Parking is limited in the village. Please consider taking a yellow cab or Uber or Lyft to the event instead of driving. If you do drive to the event please note that no ticket is needed for designated drivers accompanying you who will not be tasting.
If it’s a Wine Walk why can’t I walk around outside business with my glass full ?
ABC regulations prohibit walking between tasting sites with any wine in your glass. Thank you for either pouring out or consuming at each tasting site before strolling on to the next site!
Can I bring my baby or dog?
Sure, you can bring your baby to the wine walk. Please just be cautious with strollers as many of the businesses participating as tasting sites are somewhat small. Service animals are always allowed, however pets are not allowed in any establishment serving food.
Does my friend who will not be drinking need a ticket?
No, anyone tagging along who will not be tasting wine does not need a ticket.
No Refunds will be given. Event will proceed rain or shine.
