During the month of July, the Riverwalk district will host a variety of art-related experiences, including the Reno Vinegogh Wine Walk. The Vinegogh Wine Walk combines two great things -- art and wine. It runs from 2-5 p.m. July 16 in downtown Reno. Participants can dress as their favorite artist or art inspiration to raise funds and awareness for Arts for All Nevada.
Each month, portions of the proceeds for the Reno Wine Walk benefit local charitable organizations. In more than five years, the event organizers have donated more than $87,000 to local nonprofit groups. July's Wine Walk will benefit Arts for All Nevada at the Lake Mansion. Arts for All is housed at the Lake Mansion, where visitors can tour a residence with period furnishings, several of which were owned by the Lake family, plus portraits of family members and an original oil painting of Reno in 1862.
The Wine Walk is held on the third Saturday of the month. Participants purchase a decorative wine glass for a $20 wine-tasting fee. With wine glass in hand and a valid photo ID, you’ll receive an ID bracelet, which allows you to sample wine at any of the 20-plus participating merchant locations. Many of the businesses hand-paint each glass, which attendees get to take home. At the end of the event, attendees can enter to win more than $700 in gift cards from the participating merchants during a 5 p.m. raffle held at the Waterfall bar.
