Directions and Parking

Additional Parking in Pittsburgh >>> http://alcoparking.com/locations/downtown/

Please Note: No matter what your age, please be prepared to show proper identification in order to sample from the wineries or consume alcohol. Valid ID includes a state issued driver's license or state issued ID card with photo, a passport, or a United States military identification card with photo. We are unable to accept any foreign driver's license. Note that the identification cannot be expired at the time of the festival.

Sampling is at the discretion of the winery/vendor. Technically sampling is unlimited, unless you are abusing the sampling at a booth. We reserve the right to stop serving anyone who is visibly intoxicated or abusing the free sample policy at any booth.

Be prepared that some free samples could run out toward the end of the day.  Why? The festival requires a certain amount of product from each of the participants to place them on a level playing field.  For a variety of reasons, some samples appeal to the sampling appetites of many, and therefore run out faster - so there is a chance that the wine that "everyone is talking about" could probably run out prior to the end of the day.
