On the third Saturday of every month in Reno, the Riverwalk District hosts the Wine Walk. If you’ve never been, it’s a must-do Reno activity. $20 buys you a glass and a map (don’t lose your map!), and each participating location on the map provides wine and sometimes even a little snack. It’s just a sample of wine, but with more than 20 businesses pouring each month, you get more than your money’s worth as you peruse the destinations along the streets and alleys near the Truckee River.
I like to inform my friends that have never been before that it’s not a ‘wine tasting’ event, more of a ‘wine guzzling’ event. Some places offer pretty good wine, and others offer pretty cheap wine; but all places have friendly staff, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to get to know the local businesses in downtown Reno. Restaurants, lounges and bars, boutiques, flower shops, salons, and even a live performance theater are all regular stops on the monthly event.
I usually start the Wine Walk at Reno eNVy, my favorite trailer boutique and souvenir shop, where each glass is decorated with a trailer wine charm at no extra charge. And while you’re there, you can start the afternoon with a cheesy group photo in the shop’s Airstream.
