  • Festival attendees can only purchase two glasses (wine or beer) at a time.
  • Wine sales cease at 5.30pm.
  • Wine pours come in two measures – Half Pour = 75ml and Full Pour = 150ml.    Some sites may also offer a smaller ‘Tasting’, please ask at the site.

    • Stoke Beer & Rochdale Cider will be available at $8.00 per glass.
    • Water will be available at $3.00 per 600mls
