Wine is often considered the elixir of love, since it induces in humans all the emotions of being in love: uncontrollable giggling, homicidal rage, sleepiness. Drink deep the draught of l’amour with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a wristband that entitles you to upscale hors d'oeuvres and wine tastings (a $30 value) at the first annual Union Street Has a Crush On You Valentine Wine Walk on Thursday, February 10, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bring this Groupon to the ticket booth in front of The Metro (2055 Union Street) on the day of the festival to receive a wristband, wine glass, and map. Participants must be at least 21 years old.
With stops throughout Union Street from Gough to Steiner and on Fillmore Street from Union to Lombard, Union Street Has a Crush On You Valentine Wine Walk lets perambulating lovey-doveys walk amongst talented chefs from local restaurants while celebrating a symphony of potable and culinary delights. Although this event is free to the public, a wristband grants participants access to hors d'oeuvres and wine tastings from the many participating local wineries, such as Bear Flag Wine, saving them the trouble of fumbling with billfolds and retinal scanners. Myriad merchants—including artists and jewelers—punctuate the noshing with opportunities for bountiful browsing. Also on display will be a variety of sculptures made out of wine corks, including a miniature Eiffel Tower, presented by One of a Cork.
Union Street Has a Crush on You Valentine Wine Walk
Backdropped by Union Street's romantic sights, from Gough to Steiner, and Fillmore Street's illustrious shops, from Union to Lombard, the third annual Union Street Has a Crush on You Valentine Wine Walk fills glasses with vine-ripened flavors from around the state and across the world. Although this event is free to the public, pass holders enjoy free access to wine tastings, saving them the trouble of fumbling with billfolds and retina scanners. Participating wineries include Cresten’s Eden Canyon Vineyards, Rosa d’Oro Vineyards, and Terra Sávia, a champion of organic wine. Myriad merchants complement the wine sipping with opportunities for singles or couples to browse such bountiful commodities as organic food and lingerie. Although parking is available downtown, attendants are encouraged to consider public-transportation options so they can leave their cars, trucks, and saddled walruses at home.
