Wine & Food Affair...more of a "crush" this year

The ticket price is $75 per day and $20 per day for Designated Drivers (no wine).
Ticket sales will END Oct. 26th, 10 days prior to the event, so you will know how many people you need to prepare food for.  It may sell out sooner, based on the seats available.
There is no food reimbursement, as we are working on a budget of selling 500 tickets at $75 each - generating $37,500,  not enough to reimburse for food costs. In prior years this event easily sold 3500 tickets.
if you are interested in hosting some type of winemaker dinner, or an evening wine reception on Friday night, Wine Road will promote it for you. Each winery will sell their own tickets and manage that event, but we will have details and links on our website and on our ticket page. The link will go directly to the wineries involved. Wine Road is going to charge $50 for you to be listed. We will also share a weekly post on social media to help you sell your tickets.
if you plan to offer a dinner, reception, evening tasting - we will add it to our website, just send us all of the details: date, time, location, price, brief description and LINK to purchase tickets.  We will then invoice you for the $50.
There is no doubt things will continue to be revised and revisited between now and November.

We hope to have 20 wineries head down, so we can set up banners for "Destination Wine Road" and really showcase our AVAs. We  hope to also offer a seminar for trade on Friday morning - details pending.
So far 7 wineries have signed up that I am aware of, we hope to have 20 of you on board. This is a great audience.

Thank you to our partners for their financial support.
