These passports will go on sale, online, starting in early 2018 and can be purchased by clicking on the link near the bottom of the page.  Wine Weekday Passports can also be purchased at participating wineries at that time, through their expiration, or while supplies last. See below for a list of wineries and how many they have in stock. You should call ahead to confirm the winery has this passport in stock. Wineries will oftentimes set passports aside for you, so you can be assured they’ll be waiting for you upon your arrival.

A passport is a simple document that for a set price enables an individual to enjoy a complimentary, standard flight of wines at each of the participating wineries listed in the booklet, one time each. Normal tasting fees at the wineries range from $2-$5 per winery for a standard flight of wine samples. Passports are an especially great value for regional residents that can readily visit our Trail more than once per season, enabling them to explore all of the many participating wineries across multiple weeks. One-time visitors to the region that plan on visiting at least 8-10 wineries will likely also find this product to be a good value. If your plan is to visit fewer than 8 wineries, then it is probably wise to not purchase the passport, and instead pay the incremental tasting fees that are common to most wineries in the region. Passport programs are not valid for groups of 8 or more people.

Here is how it works: once you’ve purchased a passport, you can visit any of the participating wineries during their regular business hours, at your leisure. The winery will stamp or mark the appropriate space in your passport. There are no blackout dates, they are good every week day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday) through its duration; you may visit some wineries one day, come back at a later date and visit a few more!

Our passport products continue to feature a perk that we found to be successful and appreciated by our customers.  If you purchase at least one bottle of wine at a majority of the participating wineries in a given passport, make sure the winery stamps the separate, designated page in your passport. Provided you mail that stamped page back to the Trail office by the due date, you will receive a complimentary passport of the same kind, for the next season! Please review each page in the passport to learn more about the individual participating winery, the hours they are open, dates when they might be closed (especially during the off season), and any specials they may have.

Below will be a list of wineries who are participating in this passport as well as the quantity of passports available for sale in their tasting rooms, as of the start date of this passport on 1/2/18. This list will be posted once the Passports go on sale.
