Wine Time! The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk Returns
So far this year we’ve highlighted several beer-centric festivals. While these are fun, and while these are exciting, they are also very filling. For many of us, it is hard to muster up enthusiasm for an event that will result in us consuming several loaves of bread in liquid form. This is why the gods invented wine.
The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk is one of the harbingers of spring, and both are now right around the corner. On Friday, the 12th of April, you can join thousands of fellow wine enthusiasts as the Polk District Merchants Association, the Lower Polk Community Benefit District and Steven Restivo Event Services team up to put on one of the most hotly anticipated events of the year. The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk’s more wine-centric side will see numerous businesses offering samples of some of their areas most tempting and sought-after wines. Some of the merchants involved include:
- Cole Hardware
- Russian Hill Books
- Brownies Hardware
At these local business you will find vintners on hand to offer you tastes of their stunning wines as well as details on the types of grape, soil, and other terroir factors needed to cultivate the sort of tasting notes you will discover as you sip your way along Polk Street from Post to Filbert.
Tickets are available for advance purchase at $25 a pop by going to the official event website. If you feel like procrastinating, you can just buy your ticket at the ticketing booth on the day of the event, but be warned: this will cost you an extra $5.
Snacks will be available at some of the areas included in the walk, but all participants are strongly encouraged to also find their way to some of the various restaurants and eateries in the area before, during, or after the walk in order to ensure that you are receiving proper and complete nourishment.
The Polk Street Spring Wine Walk will take place on Friday, April 12th and will run from 4:00 in the afternoon until 8:00 in the evening. All participants will be given a wine glass and a map.
