Make and Take (Friday & Saturday only)
Raise a glass to the runners with a personalized, sandblasted wine glass. Apply any design to a wine glass using stickers and tape, and our staff will help sandblast your glass to create a frosted look. No heating or cooling required; you can take it home with you right away. No reservation required; $13 per experience.


Make Your Own Glass: Wineglass tumbler
Back by popular demand especially for Wineglass Marathon Weekend — Make Your Own Wineglass Tumbler. Choose from green, blue, or pink. There is an additional fee for Make Your Own Glass experiences. Reservations are required. Space is limited and these experiences sell out quickly. This project is available only October 4 - 7.
