Emphasizes that there are many. Early Bird daily tickets are $ 75 (VIP is $ 110). On July 1st, general admission will increase to $ 99 and VIP will increase to $ 150.

Although the name of the festival includes “wine”, the tasting tent contains about the same amount of beer and spirits. “Mixology has exploded in the last few years, so it’s unfortunate not to include Southern mixologists,” says Friedman. “In reality, each person has a specific flavor profile that speaks to them. Diversity does not encourage overconsumption. Everyone has everything so that they can have a great experience. That is. “
