I marked my calendar. Can these be purchased online or just over the phone?

Hi JoAnn! It's funny - I checked out the website; the first page says reservations by phone; then, I was just browsing through the different events listed, and it said you can reserve online & by phone. Still not entirely sure, but it does say under the "Special Festival Experiences" tab that you can book online.

Thanks Melinda. I'll check it out closer to the date. I am so looking forward to trying the Italy Wine and Food Pairing.

I booked two events this morning by phone. I found out this evening you can book some events online using the Dining Reservations page. Only one of the two events is available to book online, so I would have had to call anyway.
