Up to One Ounce Pours, as permitted by PLCB
Bottle Check so that you can Sample, Shop and Enjoy!

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
