Reno’s monthly Wine Walk returns

The Reno Wine Walk returns on Saturday, May 20.

After a long winter, it's refreshing to once again enjoy time outside in ways other than shredding on the mountain.

As summer approaches, what better way is there to prep for the season than with an afternoon filled with wine tasting?

On Saturday, May 20, Riverwalk Merchants Association hosts its monthly Wine Walk beginning at 2 p.m. in downtown Reno.

"Visit any of the participating Riverwalk District merchants on Wine Walk day to get a map of Wine Walk merchants.

"Go to the participating merchant of your choice, and, for a $20 wine-tasting ticket fee and valid photo ID, you'll receive a wine glass and a wristband that allows you to sample wine at any participating merchant," states the organization's website.

Walk along the Truckee River and Downtown Reno's nearby streets and sample a variety of wines — an iconic Saturday you may or may not remember.

Due to the expected large crowds, strollers and pets are not recommended.

Participants must be at least 21 years of age, and open containers are prohibited.

"The Riverwalk District encourages safe and sober driving by also partnering with Uber to help bring safe rides to the Riverwalk District from the event for attendees over the age of 21," states Reno Wine Walk's Facebook page.

The Downtown Reno Wine Walk concludes at 5 p.m., and features nearly 30 participating locations.

It is currently scheduled to return next month, on Saturday, June 17.
