The Downtown Campbell Wine Walk

Last week I was asked to come photograph the Inaugural Downtown Campbell Wine Walk. So the funny thing about this post is that I don't drink wine. Everywhere I went everyone was asking how the wines tasted. I could only defer that until there is an "Orange Juice" or "Club Soda" walk I wouldn't be sampling the libations :) But it was very fun watching hundreds of other people enjoying the wines and their local community at the same time.

The starting point to register and pick up your wine glass was at Import Connections on Central Ave.

Twenty four local merchants participated hosting 22 different local wineries who offered samplings of both red and white wines.

Each winery sent one or two representatives to serve the hundreds of guests who participated!

And of course there can't be wine without some cheese.

The Courtyard was packed as were the participating shops.

There were over 20 wineries participating.

There were lots of musicians interspersed on each block...

Barefoot Wine and Bubbly and Stroth Hall Cellars

Solis was served at 23 Skidoo.

KwikCart pedicabs offered rides to wine goers all evening.

There were crowds in every shop!

This event was such a huge success that another is already being planned for later this summer on September 22nd.
