Andersonville Wine Walk

May 15, 2022 | 3-6PM

BUY TICKETS NOWTicket Prices increase to $45 per ticket Thursday, May 12 at 11:59PM.

The Andersonville Wine Walk, now in its 16th year, turns businesses throughout the district into wine tasting destinations to service 600 attendees! Thank you to our event sponsors and partners: In Fine Spirits, Foursided, and State Representative Kelly Cassidy.

Check-in is located at the former Akira space at 5228 N Clark. Your complimentary wine glass received upon check-in is your ticket to this event; simply present it at each of our retail sites along your designated route for samples of delicious wines. Each wine location will be sampling 2-3 wines. Use your booklet to take notes about your favorites (almost all wines are available for purchase at In Fine Spirits). Don’t forget to meander into other shops and destinations as well. There will be food samples along the way as well; at Ándale Market on the Cork route and at Svea Restaurant on the bottle route!
