Event tickets are limited. Individual tastings may be purchased directly from the wineries during all weekends in December.

Sample wine, mead and cider along the trail this holiday season and celebrate our 15th anniversary! Get your holiday shopping done at local wineries. 

Each single and couple ticket includes a collectable wooden train ornament from each winery with their logo and year they joined the wine trail. Get your engine to start your “winery train” at your first winery, and get the caboose ornament at your last winery.

Tickets are valid for each day of the event, so you can spread your wine tasting out over five weekends. Please retain your ticket and wine glass if attending multiple days.

Tickets include† 3 tastes of wine each from each participating winery, a commemorative wine glass, and the collectable ornaments. 

Tickets do not include transportation. A list of suggested companies may be found here. Make your weekend complete and stay overnight at a lodging along the trail. A valid photo ID with proof of age is required to participate in wine tasting. Please have your ID ready upon arrival. Designated drivers and non-drinker attendees are welcome at the wineries at no additional charge.
