General admission, in advance, is $85, and there are VIP and designated driver options, too. August Hill Winery, Handley Cellars, and Wilson Winery are just three of the labels that'll be behind the bottles, but check out the whole delightful scene, one that'll rosé — or rather, rise — to the festive occasion.
