When and Where to Check-in
Check-in for the event will open at 12:00 pm (event begins at 2 pm) so you can come early to avoid long lines and grab some lunch at one of our great restaurants before heading out to taste wine. Check-in locations will be at Goosetown Lounge (1072 Lincoln) and Realty World Castlerock (1261 Lincoln).
Please note that the check-in located at Goosetown Lounge will close at 3 pm, so if you arrive after 3 pm you’ll need to check in at the Realty World Castlerock location.
Please do not forget your ID, as we will check ID for ALL attendees. At check-in you will receive a wristband, wine glass and a map to all of the tasting sites.
Please drink responsibly and taste on a full stomach! Unfortunately, the Health Dept. does not allow tasting sites that are not restaurants to serve anything other than pre-wrapped individual servings of non-potentially-hazardous snacks, so most sites will not have much food to offer to you. We open check-in two hours before the event so you can relax and have lunch at one of our great restaurants before the event.
Most of our tasting sites are fairly small businesses so do not have bathroom facilities that can handle a crowd so their bathrooms will not be available to Wine Walk attendees. Port-o-lets for Wine Walk attendees will be located at the front of the Bank of America parking lot.
Please consider taking a yellow cab or Uber or Lyft to the event instead of driving. If you do drive to the event please note that no ticket is needed for designated drivers accompanying you who will not be tasting. Free public parking is available in the Bank of America parking lot (disregard the 2 hour signs for that day). There are a few other lots in Downtown Willow Glen that also have parking or you can park on a nearby sidestreet. Just be sure to NOT park behind CVS or Orange Theory Fitness or you might be towed.
If it's a Wine Walk why can't I walk with wine?
ABC regulations prohibit walking between tasting sites with any wine in your glass. Thank you for either pouring out or consuming wine at each tasting site before strolling on to the next site!
Can I bring my baby?
We get asked this a lot! Sure, you can bring your baby to the wine walk. Please just be cautious with strollers as many of the businesses participating as tasting sites are somewhat small.
Does my friend who will not be drinking need a ticket?
No, anyone tagging along who will not be tasting wine does not need a ticket.
Refunds will be given if requested a minimum of 48 hours before the event.
No refunds will be given if it rains, since the event will be held rain or shine.
