Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I need extra tasting tickets? Please bring cash if you would like to purchase extra tasting tickets. You can purchase extra tasting tickets for $1 each at check-in or you can get them at the August Hill Winery tasting room or Roxie’s Sweet Confections. If you get them when you check in, we are only accepting cash in an effort to keep the check-in line moving quickly. If you forget cash, there is an ATM machine at the bank (corner of Mill and Canal), at Joy & Ed’s (113 Mill St.), and at Stonehead Leather, 703 S. Clark.

Where can I get the Winter Wine Walk shirt I ordered? Winter Wine walk shirts/hoodies are going to be available at the Canal Market, near our wine admission check in area. Those who pre-purchased shirts can pick them up at this area. Shirts can also be picked up the day before the event (2/11), from 1-6 pm, at Canal Market, 208 S. Clark St.

What is the schedule? Do I need to be there by 11 am for the start? The beauty of the Winter Wine Walk is that you are on your own schedule. You can come and go from each location as you please and you can check in when it is convenient for you. Can’t get here until 2 pm? No problem, we’ll still have people at the check in to get you on your way.

How does the trolley work? The trolley service begins at noon and is sponsored by Starved Rock Lodge. The trolley makes it easier for people to get from one end of town to the other (the trolley is enclosed). However, we have found that most of the people still walk (which is how the Winter Wine Walk got its name.) The majority of the tasting stops are within walking distance.

Where do we park? Parking is available at the elevator (which is near the check-in area), across from the bank, and near the memorial (corner of Mill and Church). There are also other small lots scattered throughout town and there is quite a bit of street parking available in the downtown area.
