Frequently asked questions

Do I need a festival ticket if I'm not drinking?

Yes, please. The festival tickets cover the entertainment and infrastructure necessary to run the event and the continuing promotion of our region. If you're not drinking wine this weekend, we are pleased to offer you a reusable coffee cup instead of a souvenir wine glass. Pick this up from any participating winery on the day, and grab a complimentary coffee, too.

Will there be buses running?

Tours are offered by NorthEast Coachlines across the festival weekend. If you choose to organise your own small bus, please check with the wineries you intend to visit.

Are children welcome?

Absolutely! Please leave your pets at home, however.
