Benicia Main Street’s second Wine Walk for 2017 is just around the corner. These highly successful events for downtown Benicia have been running for many years, with the Wine and Chocolate Walk in February, and June Wine Walk June 17 and September Wine Walk on Sept. 23. All Wine Walks are on Saturdays, 1-5pm.

Tasters pick up a ticket and wristband at Benicia Main Street, 90 First Street, and will receive a complimentary logo tasting glass. Participating businesses line First Street, pouring a taste of red, white or sparkling wine and perhaps a complimenting nibble.

The June wine walk is particularly popular as the weather is generally sunny with a gentle breeze off the Carquinez Strait, providing the perfect backdrop for the sip, walk and shop event. Participants must be age 21 or older.
