Village Wine Walk

Claremont's 9th Annual Vintage Village Wine Walk is scheduled for Friday, September 10, from 5pm to 9pm. The event is organized by the Village Merchant Group, which is part of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce.

VMG is chaired by photographer Sonja Stump, who helped bring us the Claremont Trolley. Fortunately for VMG and for wine lovers, the Wine Walk is vastly more successful than the poor departed trolley.

The event's official website says:

A Portion of the Proceeds Benefits:
  • American Red Cross
  • Pomona Valley Hospital Auxiliary
  • Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden
  • Shoes That Fit

They don't say where the non-dedicated portion of the profits go.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 the day of the event, though the organizers say the event usually sells out. You must be 21 years or older, and they'll check I.D.'s when you check in.

Tickets can be purchased at various locations in the Claremont Village. Click here for all the details.
