The Great Gables Wine Walk
A taste of wine, some good food and a leisurely stroll around town with friends. In Coral Gables, we call this the Wine Walk.
While the evening weather is delightful, a progressive wine tasting event in Coral Gables is a wonderful way to enjoy the depth and breath of fine restaurants, wine bars and gourmet shops in the City Beautiful.
These events are quite popular among active wine and food enthusiasts across South Florida and some say they’re the hottest ticket in town.
Meet up with friends to enjoy this unique bacchanalian adventure in downtown Coral Gables as we sample fine wines and delicious bites at multiple restaurants.
On the Great Gables Wine Walk, you and your friends will visit four different venues, all within a short walking distance. Enjoy a delightful evening sojourn at your favorite places — while discovering a few new venues as well.
