The North East Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 5th Annual Wine Walk on Saturday, March 19, 2016. This year’s event, North East Uncorked: The Vintner’s Revenge, invites participants to delve into a swashbuckling mystery and track down stolen pirate treasure as they take to the historic streets of downtown North East, PA in search of wine, food, fun and Pirate Adventure!
Because of overwhelming demand in previous years, this year’s Uncorked will feature TWO sessions on March 19; one beginning at 2:00pm and another kicking off at 6:00pm. Regional wineries will be paired with restaurants and caterers in downtown businesses. Participants will enjoy wine and appetizers at each location, all the while searching for clues to the location of the stolen treasure of the famed pirate ship, The Vintner’s Revenge. To make the wine walk even more interesting, wenches, first mates, and cutthroat pirates will be out and about downtown giving clues as to just what happened to Captain Redbeard and his trunk of doubloons! In fact, participants are also encouraged to sport their best pirate threads, but it’s not required.
On-site bottle sales from all participating wineries will also be available with free courier service provided during the event. Tickets are $25, and include wine and appetizer samples, a commemorative wine glass, and the chance to win prizes for participants who uncover the location of the treasure. Tickets are available beginning February 8, 2016 at the Chamber office, 44 W. Main Street, North East, online at www.nechamber.org, or by calling 814-725-4262.
