Q: Is there food at the Cellar Door, Crush and Poured Grand Tastings?
A: No. There are small samples, but it will not be sufficient for dinner. We recommend that guests take advantage of the many culinary establishments in Whistler for dinner either before or after the tastings.

Q: What is the dress code for the tasting events?
There is no mandatory dress code for the events, but we find that most guests wear cocktail attire and get dressed up to the nines. That being said, jeans and a nice shirt are acceptable as well.
