Winter Sip & Stroll Sails in on February 8

2020 Winter Sip and Stroll1
Gig Harbor’s popular Winter Sip & Stroll wine and food tasting event drops anchor once again on Saturday, February 8th from 12 pm – 4 pm.  Participants will find themselves strolling among downtown waterfront stores, restaurants, galleries and non-profits – all serving as Stroll Stops – sampling Northwest wines, brews, spirits and tasty small bites. Make plans today to take advantage of Early Bird pricing while it lasts!  The Winter Sip & Stroll is presented by the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance and the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor and sponsored by Anthony’s at Gig Harbor and Pam & Lee, Friends of the Alliance.  The crowd-pleasing Sip & Stroll series often sells out in advance, and this year only two are planned as the Alliance will not be presenting a wine tasting event this summer.

Taking place prior to Valentine’s Day each year, the Winter Sip & Stroll offers enthusiastic taste testers shopping opportunities and the perfect occasion to “love the wine they’re with.”  Brews from 7 Seas Brewing and Gig Harbor Brewing, and spirits from Heritage Distilling will also be featured.  The Alliance will provide complimentary shuttle transportation throughout the waterfront to make it easy to visit all the Stroll Stops. Early Bird tickets are $35 in advance and will save $10 off the day of event price through February 3rd at or Tickets are $40 February 3 - February 7, or $45 at the door on the day of the event if any tickets remain.  

Participants receive a tasting glass, 15 sip tickets, and a map to guide their stroll through the Downtown Waterfront.  “Love the Wine You’re With” even more by shopping until 5 pm at the wine store featuring bottled wines served at the Stroll Stops.  The store is located at the registration location at the Brewery Banquet Space at 7 Seas Brewing located at 3006 Judson Street.  For the latest details on participating wineries and restaurants, visit Gig Harbor Wine & Food Experience on Facebook or contact the Alliance office at 253-514-0071.
