How it Works:
When you purchase tickets using the link below, you’ll be asked to select a starting winery where you will pick up your glass & ticket and enjoy your first pairing before charting your own course to participating wineries in any order you choose. After your featured food and wine pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 to 3 tastes. 

Don’t want to drive? Add a designated driver ticket for just $10 and your DD can still enjoy the food pairings! You can also experience your food & wine tour via bus or limo through choosing a transportation package that includes tickets or by contacting one of our transportation partners. We encourage you to contact them PRIOR TO PURCHASING YOUR TICKETS and selecting a starting point, as some buses are unable to stop at certain wineries. Be sure to ask them about a package price that includes tickets. As a bonus, your souvenir glasses and tickets will also be available to you as soon as you board your bus!
