IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WINE WALK:
Because this event celebrates wines, we operate under the laws and regulations pertaining to alcoholic beverages. We also are very concerned about your safety and well being and want everyone to have an enjoyable evening and return home safely. Please do not drink and drive — assign a designated driver for the event.
We ask that you respect the following rules in order for us to continue into the future with this new event and for you to have a terrific evening.
EVERYONE (even those who bought tickets in advance) must stop by the registration table on the night of the event to have their ID checked and receive their wristband, program, and wine glass before they can participate in the event.
If you purchase tickets in advance (either in a shop or online), you will still need to present your photo identification on the day of the event when redeeming the advance ticket purchase for your glass at the registration tent. Each participant will have a wristband attached by one of our volunteers and each participant must personally come to the registration tent to do that. One person cannot pick up wristbands for a group. The wristband is proof of legal drinking age as well as proof of participation fee payment.
When you arrive at the registration tent/wine glass sales area we will collect your payment (or redeem your advance sale ticket), you will show proof of identification, you will receive your wine glass, wristband, and a program guide. You will then be free to go on the wine walk, enjoying your wine tasting inside our downtown businesses while listening to live entertainment throughout downtown. You must consume your wine sample inside the permitted area of the business where you receive the wine sample. You cannot take wine out of a permitted area!!!!!
Parking is available throughout Downtown Jeffersonville on the streets and in public lots.
Wine Walk and Shop is a tasting event that is designed to allow you to sample a wide variety of different wines. The amount of wine that is poured as a sample tasting is controlled to a limit of approximately .5 ounces. We are required by law that the tasting take place within the premises that you received the tasting. We ask that you complete your tasting experience within the business before strolling to the next location. Participating businesses will be clearly marked so you will know where you can or cannot go with wine in your glass.
We appreciate your help in observing these rules and hope you enjoy Wine Walk and Shop! We look forward to your visit and hope you come back.
Historic Downtown Jeffersonville has many wonderful events, from the concerts in the park, farmers market, and festivals to the chocolate stroll, wine walk, and trolley hops, there is something to do year-round in downtown.
