Passport to Dry Creek Valley does not provide shuttles or transportation between wineries during the weekend. It is your responsibility to drink responsibly; limit the amount of wine you taste by swirling, sniffing, sipping and spitting like the pros. Hydration stations are provided at each of the wineries.
There are a variety of transportation companies in the area (see link below), but they do book quickly! We offer a Designated Driver ticket ($50 per day) if a member of your group would like to enjoy the food & entertainment (but not the wine) of Passport. Note that as an event, we do not accept buses/limos that hold more than 24 people. However not all wineries can accommodate buses and limousines so please plan ahead (check this document for individual winery group accommodations). Parking will be available at each winery.
A note on cell phone service & ride sharing applications in Dry Creek Valley – cell phone service comes in and out through the Valley and some carriers provide more reliable service than others. This, combined with the large concentration of people in the area make it difficult to utilize any ride sharing apps throughout Passport weekend. Some wineries may provide WiFi to their attendees but please know it may not be readily available.
