A limited number of tickets are available—advance purchase required. Ticket price includes a souvenir wine glass.

Transportation to each of the wineries is not included in the ticket price.
We have heard some pretty amazing stories through the years from guys, yes mostly guys, who have not ordered tickets as they were instructed to do by their wives or girlfriends and ended up in the dog house for quite a long time. They will call in a panic the week of the event realizing they forgot to order tickets, pleading to buy tickets. Once we sell out of tickets, there are no more. So, make the call, 800-932-8687 or order on-line here and secure your happy future.
If you have not been on one of our wine trail events you may wonder how it actually works so we’ve created a list of frequently asked questions about this.
How the Trail Works
1) You must be 21 to participate
2) Start the event at any of the seven participating wineries. Please note – each winery’s tasting room policies remain in effect during Wine Trail events and are not included in the ticket price. Some wineries charge for wine tasting.
3) Pick up your souvenir wine glass at the first winery you visit.
4) Visit the wineries in any order you wish.
5) Take you ticket and wine glass with you to each stop.
6) Drop off your ticket at the last winery you visit to enter the drawing.
7) Have fun, but please enjoy this event responsibly.
