First, get your wine tasting Starter Pack (general or VIP) at the main entrance of Heritage Park near the American Bank Center. Your starter pack consists of a wine glass, ten wine-tasting tickets, your wine-tasting bracelet, and an event program with the wine list and a map. If you purchase your pre-sale starter pack online, just check-in at the main entrance when you arrive at the festival to pick it up.
Only tickets (no cash) will be accepted for wine tastings. Additional tasting tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at the main entrance or ticket booths conveniently located within the park so you can purchase more at any time! There are 3 portions at this years festival: a taste (1.5oz), a half glass (3oz), and a full glass (5oz). Most tastes will be between 2-4 tickets. When you find the wines you like you can purchase the glass for anywhere between 7-14 tickets. Don't forget your ID! When you pick up your starter pack, we will give you a wine-tasting bracelet that verifies you are of legal drinking age.
Purchasing Wine: How big of a tease would it be if we let you taste wine without letting you buy some to take home with you? As you taste wines throughout the day, use your wine list order form in the event program to mark which ones you like the most. There is NO CORKING of wine bottles allowed on premises. ONLY Texas Wineries will have bottles stocked on site for sale and consumption OFF SITE. All other varieties can be ordered and picked up from a designated location after the festival date. Subject to availability.
