The sun was shining and Downtown Dells was abuzz with participants in the 2014 Spring Wine Walk this past Friday, April 25th! The event kicked off at 4 p.m. and stayed continuously busy until the booths closed at 9. Twenty-two downtown businesses participated, allowing attendees to easily explore and enjoy all that Downtown Dells has to offer.
Tickets went on sale about a month before the event and sold out days before! With the purchase of a ticket, wine lovers received a commemorative Wine Walk glass to use for the event and a guidebook to use as a map, both of which they picked up the morning of the 25th.
Each business had their own page in the guidebook, which provided a space for attendees to make notes on their favorite wines and also advertised the various sales and events each location was offering. From special Wine Walk discounts and coupons to thrilling contests and the chance to win awesome prizes, each business was a unique and exciting experience!
At every location participants could sample a different red and a white wine, as well as appetizers that were chosen specifically to enhance the flavors of the wine they were offering. Fawn Creek, a winery located in The Dells, was in attendance at many of the booths and their incredibly knowledgeable staff was happy to answer any questions.
With all 450 tickets sold, Downtown Dells was as busy as ever with smiling, giggling faces as participants strolled from place to place; some proudly displaying prizes they won or recent purchases from a store’s Wine Walk sale! Overall it was an ideal evening and a wonderful event!
Keep your fingers crossed for another Fall Wine Walk! Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more information.
