    Wine Stroll has been a popular bi-annual event for many years in Lincoln Square Ravenswood. People purchase tickets in advance for one route. On the night of Wine Stroll, they must first check-in at a designated location. They bring their ticket, show ID for a wristband, and sign a waiver. They're given a goodie bag, which includes a branded wine glass and a route program. This event is a great way to tour the local business community while enjoying tastes of wine and delicious small bites.

    Here's how it works: Wine Stroll sponsors (Augusta Food and Wine, Bottles & Cans, and Fountainhead Market) secure the wines to be poured AND assign certified wine reps to pour at each participating business location. A curated list of local restaurants will provide light bites/appetizers for each business, so each wine stroll stop has food . To ensure variety for ticketholders, each business will have different wine selections and small bites.
