Winter stinks, let's have some fun!
Winter in Rochester can be a real downer, right? Snow, cold, grey skies and tons of road salt. We've created an event to get together and "wine about winter" together. The Rochester "Wine About Winter" Festival is a wine festival that features 15-20 wineries sampling 6 wines each, music, food and vendors all coming together to forget winter! At the Rochester "Wine About Winter" Festival go ahead and "wine" about winter all you want.
Tickets are $26 each ($36 at the door) and you have a choice of sampling sessions to attend. With the purchase of your ticket you receive a commemorative sampling glass and your wine samples. You may choose to attend one of two sampling sessions: the afternoon session (1pm-4pm) or the evening session (7pm-10pm). The event will have music and vendors to shop and food will be available for purchase.
The Afternoon session will feature an Ugly Sweater party. So keep those terrible ones handy after the holidays. Prizes will be given to contest winners.
The Evening session will be a Black & White party. So dress to impress with your friends as we gather the best looking festival crowd in Rochester history! We will have a photo booth at the event for you and your friends to take home a great memento.
There is a "Group" ticket available for groups of 6 or more for $21 per person. This option is only available through this website and in advance. Group tickets will not be available at the door! When you purchase your group ticket please note that your party MUST enter the event as a group all at once.
We are bringing you a wine festival "experience." As you enter you'll receive your complimentary sampling glass. You'll have the opportunity (if you act quickly when you arrive) to join one of our Paint Parties. Our advice: go right to this attraction when you arrive to sign up for a party. At a previous festival in 2016 this attraction was full 15 minutes into each session. Our hostesses will get you wine while you paint so you won't miss a thing. If you're still feeling creative you can join a Coloring Party. This is an "at your leisure" activity. You may join it at any time. You'll also have the opportunity to stomp grapes in the "Celebrity Photo Booth." There are also games like Cornhole, Yard Scrabble and Giant Jenga.
There is a Craft Beer Festival going on as well and there will be Craft Beer and Wine throughout the convention center. You do not need to split up from your party. You will be able to get beer and wine without any issues.
Get your tickets at any area Wegmans or on this website.
A portion of the event proceeds go to the Rochester area JDRF. You'll have the opportunity to join in on the giving at the Coat Check and activity areas! Let's help get rid of diabetes!
