What better place to “wine” away those winter blues than at the annual Wine About Winter?
Each January, a collection of businesses in Grand Haven’s Centertown and Downtown districts invite the public to sample wines and check out art from local artists.
As guests sip on samples of Shiraz and Chardonnay, area artists offer talks about their works, all of which are displayed at the various venues as part of Wine About Winter.
New this year!
Taste wines from a different wine region of the world at each participating venue as your travel “Around The World” – no passport necessary! Tasting packages are $10 and include a commemorative wine glass and (5) starter tasting tickets. You can pick up your wine glass package in advance at Santo Stefano del Lago located at 12 Washington in Downtown Grand Haven. Packages will also be available for purchase the day of the event at Santo Stefano, Gallery Uptown, and the Frame and Mat Shop. Ala carte and additional tasting tickets will be available for purchase for $1 each during the event.**

The trolley will be available to take you between all of the participating businesses from 6-9pm. It’s only one ticket or $1 per rider – you only need to park once!
As you travel to each venue, you will receive a postcard. Each postcard can be used as an entry into the prize drawing that includes many amazing items donated by local businesses. The more postcards you collect, the more chances you have to win! The prize drawing will be at 9pm at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum at 200 Washington. You must be present to win.
When the winter weather is at its worst, head down to Grand Haven’s Main Street and “wine” a bit. You’ll feel better!
