Winter Wine Walk Enjoys Springlike Weather

The sons and daughters of Bacchus were out in force during this year’s Winter Wine Walk throughout the Antioch business district on Saturday, Jan 21.

A new record of nearly 500 aficionados of the grape enjoyed spring-like temperatures that flirted with the 60-degree mark as they toured more than 20 local businesses sampling different wines at each along with a variety of hors d’oeuvres. Over 20 volunteers served as sommeliers at each of the wine walk destinations.

The Antioch Parks and Recreation Department sponsored the popular event, one of three wine walks it conducts during the year. Tickets for the June 3 Summer Wine Walk go on sale online on April 13 at 6:00pm. For more information about the wine walks and future Parks and Recreation events call 847-395-2160.
