    Can we purchase a bracelet at any participating winery? And is the tasting limited to the few wine varieties that are up for the Derby Trial?

    Bracelets may be purchased at any participating winery and will serve as your ticket for tastings at all wineries taking part in the event on Saturday. Each winery can choose up to six wines to pour that they feel are their best wines.
