Event Guide

This specific parking lot on Western Michigan University campus is dedicated to Fetzer Center guests. Lot 72F has ample handicap-accessible parking spaces available as well.


Available Wines

We have posted our full winery list HERE! Wine is available while supplies last.

Representatives will be onsite from some of the wineries to discuss their wines, and we will have tasting notes available for the remaining wines.  

How It Works

You will receive a branded sampling glass upon entry, which can be filled with tastings of our over 80 wines! DDs will not receive a glass. Wine will NOT be poured into any other type of drinking vessel. If your glass breaks you will not be given a new one- guard it with your life!

There is not a set number of samples you can receive- try a little bit of everything!

Don't like what you tried? There will be dump buckets placed throughout the event where you can empty your glass. Not sure if you're going to like something? Just ask for a smaller sample first- this saves on wasted wine that we KNOW other attendees would love to drink!


VIPs get to enjoy Wine Not? in style! Not only do you get to enter the event an hour before GA (5:00 PM), but you also get to enjoy the private VIP lounge, provided by Reflections Salon & Med Spa

You can find the VIP lounge on the second floor- just take the elevator or stairs up one flight! You MUST be wearing your VIP wristband to enter this area. Once in the lounge, you can grab a quick snack and sample some of the exclusive VIP wines!
