The Downtown Naperville Winter Wine Walk is making its annual return.

On Sunday, February 5, participants are invited to stroll the streets of downtown Naperville, making stops in a number of shops along the way for some wine tastings.

11 stops on the wine walk

There will be 11 total stops, with a 1-oz pour at each. Those who sign up will get a wine glass to keep, find a number of discounts at stores along the way, and some tasty snacks.

Start times for the event will be staggered, with all checking-in first at Sullivan’s Steakhouse at 244 S. Main Street. There will also be three different routes, featuring different shops and restaurants along the way. Routes will be randomly assigned, and may not be selected by the walker.

Ticket sales kick off January 17

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, January 17 at noon. A portion of the proceeds for the event will benefit the Inside Out Club, a nonprofit that works to empower kids to become their best selves and make a positive impact on the world around them.

“We’re thrilled to have been selected as the beneficiary of the Downtown Naperville Winter Wine Walk!” said Marion Ruthig, Founder and Executive Director of Inside Out Club DuPage in a press release. “Funds received will help the organization empower thousands of children this year to live each day with good character – accepting others, using empathy, choosing kindness, and more – and a desire to help others, animals, and the planet.”

More information is available on the Downtown Naperville website.
