There's nothing more romantic than taking a nighttime stroll with your sweetie and downtown Campbell has just the thing. The seventh season of the Campbell Wine Walk kicks off tonight, Feb. 13 at 5:00 p.m.
New wineries this year include Loma Prieta Winery, Creekview Vineyards and Morlet Family Vineyards. Also to note is that Regale Winery and Vineyards will not only be participating again this season as a pourer (in front of Toys Toys Toys), it will also be opening a Wine Bar in the historic Gaslighter Theater this summer.
"This is the Downtown Campbell Business Association's biggest fundraiser," says former DCBA President and Campbell business owner Sonya Paz.
Paz has been coordinating the bi-annual Wine Walk (winter and fall) event for five of its seven seasons.
"We really wanted to focus on local winemakers," she says.
