WINE TASTING TENT GUESTS AND PATRONS: Admission for the wine tasting tent is $5 per person and we will check your ID at the door so please be prepared. You may sample wines at any of our vendors (limit of 12, .5 oz samples) and we encourage you to be responsible in your consumption. Anyone who over indulges will be escorted from the premises and we have a large police presence in the village the weekend of the festival so it is not a good decision to drink too much! Sealed bottles of wine will be for sale at each winery table and wine can be stored on site and picked up when you are ready to leave the festival for the day, so please feel free to purchase your favorites in any quantity. Many of these wines are difficult to find outside the actual winery so be sure to stock up at the festival. No alcoholic beverages may be consumed on the grounds of the Strawberry Festival outside the wine tasting tent.
