What does my ticket include?
Each online general admission ticket includes tasting tickets (one ticket for each vendor) to enjoy wine tastings, a commemorative wine glass, and a full pour of your favorite wine that you taste! Each tasting ticket allows you to taste all wines at each vendor! You can also purchase wine by the glass or bottle at the event. At the entrance, please provide your online ticket via mobile device or printed copy.
If I really like the wine that I taste, can I buy a glass or bottle?
Yes! Your ticket includes one full pour of your favorite wine and you will have the ability to purchase any wine that you taste by the glass or bottle. These additional purchases are not included in the ticket price but all wine will be affordably priced for the attendees.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
You will be issued a wristband if you plan to partake in the wine tastings! There is no minimum age requirement for the event. Families with kids are welcome! Alcohol will only be served / sold to attendees wearing a wristband confirming they are age 21 or older.
Do I need to purchase a ticket if I'm not drinking or for my kids?
Attendees (including kids) that are not planning to drink wine, DO NOT need to purchase a ticket! Feel free to enjoy the music and grab some food from the local food trucks! :)

Is the event dog friendly?
The 2nd Annual Richmond Wine Festival is definitely dog friendly! It wouldn't be a Richmond event without your furry friends! Just make sure your dog is well behaved and friendly. :)
