Olympic Peninsula Wineries is excited to welcome you for Red Wine, Cider and Chocolate. Hopefully you have been keeping up with the activity on Facebook to see all the exciting activities, food and wine that will be happening during our event. We want to update you on a few changes that you will notice during Red Wine, Cider and Chocolate.
Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board contacted our winery association just before Christmas to let us know that we need to Change the way we’re running our tours. The biggest change that you might notice is that there will be a sign that says “Tour Tasting Here”. One of the requirements for the LCB is that the “Ticketed Tour Event” tasting areas and the wineries/cideries’ tasting areas are kept separate.
When you check in, whether at your first stop or your last stop, you should be sure to get your passport stamped. If a member of your party will taste at only one or two of the wineries and didn’t purchase a ticket, please let the check in person know. They will collect the $10 tasting fee and make sure that they taste in the correct area.
Please be patient with us all as we work to comply with these new requirements. We look forward to sharing good food, excellent wine and friendship with all of you. Thank you!
