Q:

Does the VIP $20 ticket include the unlimited wine tasting ($10) and t-shirt? Or, is it for additonal tasting of more expensive wines, special seating, etc.? So, actually you are paying $10 for another t-shirt? If the admission is free, $25 is for cheese, t-shirt and lanyard, correct?

A:

Yes, the $20 VIP ticket includes the unlimited wine samples and souvenir glass as well as a t-shirt. Admission is included with the Groupon which also includes the sample cheese plate, lanyard and t-shirt.

Q:

On your direct website http://www.uncorkthefun.com you can purchase tickets that include the wine tasting ticket and glass. I don't understand the previous answer about virginia law and why you are not including the tasting ticket. If you can sell a tasting ticket via your website why not groupon? Another previous answer says that paying VIP $20 additional day of gets you a t-shirt, but the regular groupon also includes a t-shirt? So you get two t-shirts?

Rod L.  asked on  Mar 19, 2013

A:

You will need to take this up with the State of Virginia. They do not allow any packages to be sold via third parties such as Groupon and other such sights for Alcohol. Therefore we CANNOT sell you any admission that includes alcohol. The way we have tried to package this offer (which is a special ticket) is offer you something that will include a big discount on the alcohol portion so that you can participate in this if you'd like. This package basically includes a $17 coupon for a drinking ticket. If you want regular - then to drink it will cost $10 on-site. To go for the VIP tickets that will include more food than the cheese plate it will cost $20 on-site. For Groupon subscribers this will mean that ONE person can drink on BOTH days for this $10 or $20 depending on what ticket you want. THE T-SHIRT.....the t-shirt is includeed with your groupon.....it does not cost extra at all and each Groupon subscriber gets only ONE T-SHIRT.

Q:

So, for $25 I get: admission (free) souvenir lanyard, tee shirt, and cheese plate. On the page about the event it says that, "Tasting tickets are limited for each day." Does that mean that I may get there and not be able to buy wine and food tasting tickets because they are sold out for the day? Is there any way to "reserve" wine and food tickets, even though we cannot purchase them until we get there?

Katherine D.  asked on  Mar 15, 2013

A:

Any Groupon ticket will guarantee you a tasting ticket.

Greg T.  from  Merchant  replied on  Mar 15, 2013

I am a little confused... What does "admission" get me for this event? On the event's website, it says that admission is free. And, Groupon mentions that we need to purchase a $10 tasting ticket on the day of.... So in effect, are we buying a lanyard, t-shirt, and cheese plate? Thank you
