HOW IT WORKS:
There are 23 Sip Stops on the Walk. You will not make it to all the stops; so plan your route strategically.
Each Sip Stop will have samples available. Alcoholic sample sizes are limited to 1 - 2 ounces.
(Please don't ask for larger samples. We legally can not provide you more.)
A Google map marks the participating locations and will be emailed to ticket purchasers and available the evening of the Walk.
To start the Walk, each ticket holder must stop at one of two check-in locations - Downtown Madison Visitors Center, 452 State Street or the Park Hotel, located on the Capitol Square - between 4pm and 6pm on the day of the event to show their ID (proof of legal drinking age) and to pick up their wristband, commemorative glass, shopping bag and list of participating businesses. Sampling runs from 5pm - 8pm.
No ID = No Wristband; No wristband = No wine.
You may NOT pick up wristbands for other people.
Wristbands will be secured at check in.
