Enumclaw Chamber’s annual wine walk this Saturday

The weather outside could be frightful, but the wine inside promises to be delightful.

Ready to sip, stroll, and socialize?

The Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce’s annual Wine Walk on Nov. 4 is featuring more than 30 wineries pouring their libations on various downtown business between 5 and 9 p.m.

For the first time, the Courier-Herald office will be one of the 27 pouring locations, giving attendees a chance to check out the local news room and talk with editor Ray Miller-Still.

There will be more than just wine at the event, of course — according to Chamber Events Director Kerry Solmonson, a Sound Events NW DJ will be providing live entertainment for the night, providing “the perfect backdrop for an evening of socializing and sampling incredible wines,” she said.

And for those who are trying to get ahead on holiday shopping — or stock up on their personal collection — most of the wines featured during the event will be available for purchase at the shops they are being poured at; there will also be a mini wine shop at the Chamber office.

General admission tickets bought online (enumclawchamber.com/wine-walk) are $45 or at the door for $55. Tickets include a collectors tasting glass, 10 tasting tickets, and a wine walk passport detailing the wine options. Additional tasting tickets are available for purchase at both check-in locations.

Check-in for the event begins at 4 p.m., with check-in booths in front of the Chamber on the west side of Cole Street, and Dr. Ossman/ Harding’s Office on the east side; tasting begins at 5 p.m.

The first 1,000 attendees will also receive a wine bag, courtesy of Dr. Ossman/Harding, to transport any purchases you may make.

Note that VIP tickets, which starts the event an hour earlier at a private lounge with live music, snacks, swag bag, five additional tasting tickets, and a specially-created tasting glass, are sold out.
