Downtown Walnut Creek Wine Walk

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.

Flora Springs gets our vote for wine of the night
Swan's Bookstore Classic Spread

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

Wine – no. Delicious -YES!

The mojitos at Havana – so yum!  The perfect adult limeade for summer.

Memorable foods

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!

How bout dem potstickers?

Design Haus spread with classic homemade meatballs

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.

Tip

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.
