What is included in my ticket?
Your ticket guarantees entry into The Wine Show Live for the duration of five hours (one session). The afternoon session starts at 12:00 and finishes at 17:00. The evening session starts at 18:30 and finishes at 23:30.
Your ticket entitles you to twenty 30ml samples, to be redeemed with as many as eleven of our producers.
If you have purchased a ticket with a Masterclass, you are guaranteed entry into the festival for five hours, including attendance to one Masterclass. A Masterclass lasts for one hour. The Masterclass will be held by one of The Wine Show team.
So what actually happens at the event?
A sample glass and festival programme will be provided on entry to the venue. Producers from various countries across both old and new world regions will serve a sample measure of their wine to guests who attend on the day. The samples will be exchanged for a ticket stub that can be found in your programme. Each guest has the choice of a total of twenty sample measures of wine from as many as eleven producers. In addition to wine tasting, you can attend one of our masterclasses, or purchase sample the cuisine on offer. There will be a bottle shop where you can purchase bottles of your favourite wine and nifty wine gadgets as souvenirs.
If I don’t use all of my tokens, am I entitled to a refund?
Ticket stubs are non-transferable and non-refundable. If you do not use all of your allocated ticket stubs within the five-hour session, you are not entitled to a refund. You will be unable to redeem the ticket stubs at a later session.
Can I have more than one sample glass from the same wine producer?
We carefully handpick all the producers we work with, who in turn are selective about the products they showcase on the day. To ensure all of our guests are able to enjoy the full range of wine on offer, your ticket stubs will entitle you to sample twenty 30ml sample glasses of which you can choose from the eleven producers in attendance.
Is food included in the ticket price?
Food is not included in the ticket price. However, there will be a range of delicious food options available to purchase to suit every taste and diet.
Do you have dairy-free and gluten-free food options?
We certainly do. There will be a range of food options available to cater to these diets. If you suffer from allergies, speak to our chefs and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
Can I attend the Masterclass without general entry to the Festival?
You may only attend a Masterclass if you have a general entry ticket to the festival.
How long do you recommend to stay at the event?
We encourage guests to arrive earlier to their allotted sessions which will give them ample time to get to know the wine producers on hand. The producers are available to answer any questions you may have about their products or the process of winemaking. We will stop serving 15 minutes before the close of the session, so we want you to be able to fully enjoy all of the wine on offer.
In addition to meeting the producers, you can get the chance to meet some of The Wine Show team and an abundance of food. So relax, unwind and enjoy The Wine Show Live with us at Oval Space!
Will there be a cloakroom?
