Discover your new favorite wines just in time for holidays
The holidays will soon be upon us and with it, a social season of visiting, gift-giving and sharing good food. Whether you’re hosting at your home or have a hostess gift in mind, the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association’s WINE FOR THE HOLIDAYS on Nov. 2 from 1-5 pm has you discovering the perfect wine to pair with any meal, no matter who makes it.
Getting your tickets is easy; purchase them online or call to find out about getting them the day of the event. For $15, you get six 1-ounce tastings and a commemorative wine glass, which you’ll pick up at the Resort Plaza Shops (201 E. Sherman Ave.). Bring an unwrapped, unused toy in support of the Marine Corps’ long-standing Toys for Tots program and get an extra tasting ticket.
Your experience is entirely self-guided and a terrific opportunity to do a little shopping while you’re downtown. Look for artwork at BLACKWELL GALLERY or THE ART SPIRIT GALLERY or home décor and more at MIX IT UP and INTO THE WOODS, all of which will be pouring for Wines for the Holiday ticket-holders.
Of course you don’t have to limit your travels to participants in the Wine for Holidays event. Downtown Coeur d’Alene is home to more than 125 businesses from retail clothing to jewelry to gourmet foods to bars, bakeries, coffee shops and restaurants.
