PREPARING FOR THE FESTIVAL:
The Winemaker Dinner is upstairs from the Grand Tasting on the second floor of Bosch Lodge.
There is no dress code for any of the events per se, except clean, casual, comfortable attire. We imagine people will wear similar as what they have in the past to the dinner.
FORECAST: Sunny with a 100% chance of wine. High 69' / Low 48' F
CLOTHING: Bring layers, it will be cool at night, mornings, and in the shade.
SHOES: We are not recommending anything in particular, just feel great and able to walk on a dirt road and in the grass in the shoes you'll be wearing!
The Grand Tasting will be held on the grass, in 4 tents in two meadows with the auction and music in the middle, so walking in shoes that don't sink into the grass will be helpful (Ladies think cowgirl boots, not heels).
PARKING: When you turn to enter from Hwy 128, set your odometer for 1 mile, Parking Lot 2 is ticket-holder/everyone parking and it's a short 5-minute walk to the Festival Check-in/Grand Tasting tents from there.
