Participating merchants will be offering free wine tasting at their business from 6 pm to 8 pm. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through our shops and restaurants – a great way to see all the Village has to offer and taste some fabulous wines.
The fee to participate is $10, with proceeds going to the featured charity. Of course, you must be at least 21 years old to partake in the tastings, but all ages are welcome to shop and savor the many restaurants. The first 100 participants will receive a commemorative wine glass – so get there early!
