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

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
