Token system

To assist our festival exhibitors, we have created a token system where for each tasting the consumers provide a token worth $2 to the vendor. The tokens are redeemable for 30ml to 50ml of wine/cider piccolo glass or a cheese tasting. With this system, we want to ensure our festival vendors are reimbursed adequately for the effort. Tokens are available to be purchased as part of the tickets online (cheaper) or at the venue on the day. Consumers are welcome to opt for a full glass or bottle of wine or cheese platter at the festival to enjoy or take home.
