Walk of Wine
Submitted By Ramona Thomas
Everyone is invited to the first summer wine-tasting "Passeio do Vinho, Hayward's Walk of Wine" to benefit Hayward Friends of Animals. The excitement begins Saturday, July 27 at 3 p.m. when Wine Walkers will meet at the City Hall Rotunda to register with their I.D., taste their first wine pour, listen to smooth jazz and eat tasty bites while mingling with fellow Wine Walkers.
Following registration, Wine Walkers will venture out in groups to visit up to thirteen "Cork It! Pour It!" tasting stations located within downtown Hayward businesses. A collection of diverse businesses ranging from Hayward's Fire Station #1, jewelers, clothiers, antique dealers, restaurateurs and others will serve appetizing hors d'oeuvres to delight the palate accompanied by savory local and international wines to please the soul. The tasting route will also feature non-alcohol-serving locations.
While walking along the tasting route, invitees will enjoy live performances by pop, jazz, and rhythm and blues artists. Entertainment spots will be designated on route maps distributed during the registration process.
There are three participation levels:
Estate Reserve - Commemorative Wine Glass, Keepsake Tote Bag, Keepsake Sports Bottle and Goodies: $50 (advance purchase), $55 (day of event), $45 (student/senior)
