***No Purchase Necessary for Wine/Spirits/Cider Tastings/Sampling***

All wineries will have a One Ounce Plastic Tasting Cup to provide Patrons sampling their wine. However, purchasing an "Official Stemless or Stemmed Tasting Glass" will help to reduce plastic waste and you'll have a wonderful souvenir from today's event

"Opportunity to Sample and Purchase Fine PA Wines/Spirits/Ciders"
Up to One Ounce Pours, as permitted by PLCB
 
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

Bottle Check so that you can Sample, Shop and Enjoy!

Produced by: http://www.drinkfestpa.com/

PLCB allows Up to One Ounce Tasting Samples / Photo ID required at Check-In
Must be 21 and Over for Alcoholic Tasting Samples
***No Purchase Necessary for Wine/Spirits/Cider Tastings/Sampling***
No Refunds or Transfer of any Ticket (Rain or Shine) **No Back-Up Date**
All Details and Pricing Subject to Change without Notice

Do NOT Drink and Drive
Bring a Designated Driver
Call and Use an Uber or Taxi Service
Call a Friend or Relative to come pick you up

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
