The cost for the tasting is $8 and includes 6 tasting tickets as well as an Egg wine glass. We will have special prices on all wine by the bottle and it will be available for to-go purchase. We will also have a drawing for a special package that will include tickets to the show the next night. Please get here early, as we will fill up very fast.
