Return of the Polk Street Spring Wine Walk
Since last spring, wine aficionados from San Francisco and the surrounding area have gathered together to enjoy the longer days, (slightly) warmer nights, and the love of wine. The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk, as it has come to be called, runs the entire length of Polk Street that lies between Post and Filbert Street, giving participants ample time and space to taste some of the best wines produced throughout California.
A production of the well known Steven Restivo Event Services, the 2nd Annual Polk Street Spring Wine Walk will happen on Thursday, April 12th, and it will last from 4:00 in the afternoon until 8:00 in the evening, which means you will not need to rush your way through the Sauvignon Blanc so superbly tickling your palette.
Along the posted route, participants will have the chance to drift from wine cellar to wine seller, all conveniently located along this particular stretch of road. These wine experts will have on hand numerous bottles of fine reds and whites open and ready for tasting. Of course, the ability to sample so many wines is not something that the merchants can offer freely, but the $25 ticket ($30 day-of) price is modest considering what it will allow you to access: untold volumes of the wonders produced by the interaction of mashed grape and yeast.
The tastings will give you a chance to experience some rare or specialty wines that would otherwise remain a mystery to you, hidden as they are inside the opaque glass of the wine bottle. But with your newfound knowledge of these wines, your ability to purchase some of the more exciting vintages available throughout Polk Street will undoubtedly transform your summer garden parties into a chance to showcase your exquisite taste and refinement.
While the Polk Street Wine Walk will undoubtedly feature some tasty snacks, all participants are encouraged to acquire sustenance from one of the many eateries, bistros, cafes, and other wonderful dining services located throughout the Polk Street area.
The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk is a ticketed event, with the final ticket being sold one hour before the walk concludes. Advance ticket purchase is encouraged and rewarded by a $5 discount.
