Downtown Walnut Creek Wine Walk
All in all, the Wine Walk was a really nicely done event. 29 participating businesses. Several more including the wineries. I don’t think it’s possible to visit every station in 3 hours. A few of them had lines. Some were a little crowded.
Favorite wine of the night
Flora Springs Sauvignon Blanc – This winery is in St. Helena, right next door to Dean and Deluca and across from V. Sattui. I can’t wait to stop in the next time I’m in the area.
This wine was served at Swan’s Fine Books. Accompanied by cheese and crackers, which were very nice.
Favorite non-wine drink of the night
The mojitos at Havana – so yum! The perfect adult limeade for summer.
Cheap Pete’s, the frame shop, did not scrimp. They served delicious chicken wings, chicken tenders, antipasto, veggies and dip.
Vanessa’s Bistro 2 put out their spring rolls and potstickers. Them potstickers was good!
Home of Chicken and Waffles served samples of their yummy fried chicken and mac and cheese–yum!
Design Haus had meatballs, in addition to a nice spread of veggies, chips, and dips.
Mixed Grain served their deliciously sweet glazed potatoes.
If there’s a place you really want to “try” go there early. It was only 8:30, but by the time we got to Lark Creek, they had closed up shop.
