Wine Walk coming downtown

This August, wine will be flowing in various corners of downtown Plymouth during the city’s very first wine walk.

The Cheese Capital Wine Walk sponsored by Masters Gallery Foods Inc., is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. It will offer ticket holders the opportunity to sample a variety of wines as they walk from business to business where they can also sample local cheeses, learn about local wines, listen to local musicians, purchase wine related items and sample sweets.

Presented by the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, the walk will have up to 20 participating downtown businesses, the chamber said.

For an admission fee, ticket holders will each receive a wine glass, sponsored by The Benefits Companies of Plymouth, and be able to sample one wine at each participating business, Hauser said. The Chamber plans to create “passports” for each participant, with a stamp for each location visited, she added.

“The aim of the wine walk is to draw people into the community, get residents and visitors interested in shopping and dining at local businesses,” said Mary Hauser, executive director of the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce.

“We’ll only have 200 tickets available for the event, and we’re pretty sure it will sell out quickly.” Hauser said. Tickets can be purchased in advance and then turned in the night of the event for a wrist band, wine stop map and commemorative wine glass.

The idea to bring a wine walk to Plymouth came from discussions with the Chamber’s events committee in coming up with ways to showcase our downtown and community.

And, “in working with the Downtown group, D.A.M., there are so many great businesses that we want to show off and what better than to do something that’s fun and can bring people into shops and businesses they may be unfamiliar with,” said Hauser

Wines from local wineries as well as some outside of the county will be served, but all will be from Wisconsin wineries. The event will also be featuring local cheeses as Plymouth is the “Cheese Capital of the World.”

Tickets for the Cheese Capital Wine Walk will cost $30 and are available at the Chamber office. There will also be a Designated Driver ticket for $10 which will allow the holder to sample all of the foods and goodies but no wine.
