  7. Does the shuttle follow a specific route?
    A:
    Yes. We go in a counterclockwise direction to HWY 290 throughout the day. We initially drop off at various wineries along the route in order to distribute guests throughout the route. This helps alleviate overcrowding at any one particular winery. You may go back to a winery later in the day, just follow the route until you arrive at the winery of your choice.
