Holiday Urban Wine Trail to Take Wine Lovers on a Tasting Expedition


If spirits will help you get into the holiday spirit this year, be sure to catch this weekend’s Holiday Urban Wine Trail Tour. Passengers will sample limited-release vino from 11 different wineries during a chauffeured tour of the city’s downtown Funk Zone wineries, all while the safest designated driver-the S.B. Trolley Company-takes care of the transportation. In addition to all the fun you’ll have riding the trolley and tasting varietals, you’ll also be supporting a good cause: A portion of the tour’s proceeds will be donated to the Unity Shoppe. The trolley departs at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 5. Tickets are $50, and it’s for ages 21+. Call 886-0613 for meet-up location and for more info.
