Event Website

Meet the men and women whose craft is at the heart of EPIC Wine Country…the winemakers!  Mingle with them at each participating winery as they talk about what they do and the wines they love.  A $40 discovery pass is your ticket to an intimate look behind the bottle at 10 EPIC wineries. Each stop will provide a unique, hands-on experience at set times throughout the day, led by the winemakers and owners themselves. Tickets are valid for the entire weekend, so take your time: play, sip and learn!

Activities will commence at each location hourly starting at 12:00 with the last activity starting at 4:00.  Please try your best to plan ahead: some activities may be limited by group size.
