Wine connoisseurs, prepare your palates for the 8th annual Tahoe City Wine Walk. Stroll along North Lake Boulevard for not only some of the best sightseeing spots in town, but also for a taste of the finest wines and gourmet food in the area. This event is a fundraiser for the Tahoe City Downtown Association, which is a non-profit organization made up of local businesses, property owners, associations, professionals, and residents. The goal of the Tahoe City Downtown Association is to promote and cultivate a "prosperous commercial and social center" for locals and guests in Tahoe City.

From Noon to 4pm on Saturday, June 22, indulge in wine tastings from 30 regional wineries and delight in the hor d'oeuvres from local Tahoe restaurants and catering companies. Guests can expect decadent wines from wineries such as Lucchesi Vineyards and Winery, Hatcher Winery, Cielo Estate, and the Arbios Cellars among others. Additionally, the Uncorked Wine Bar in the Cobblestone Center in Tahoe City will offer many of these featured wines, so guests can purchase bottles of their favorites from the Wine Walk.

While there are adult beverages on hand, the association welcomes children to tag along. Adults can purchase discounted tickets for their kids so that the little ones can join in on the gourmet food tastings as well (kids under 7 years old are free!).

And as if the four-hour event wasn’t spoiling guests enough, various local vendors are treating participants to additional perks. Flash your Wine Walk wristband at the Dockside 700 Lakefront Grill to receive extended happy hour deals from noon to 6pm, or show your attached wristband to the vendors at Tahoe Daves Skis & Boards, and the Tahoe Marine Supply to receive 10% off of anything in the store all day long on the 22nd.
