Called "Truffles, Tidbits & Wine Tasting," the twice-annual event is sponsored by the Pleasanton Downtown Association.
Wine strollers received commemorative wine glasses and a map showing the participating downtown locations with the only stipulation that their glasses had to be empty when they moved from one wine-pouring location to the other. Tickets were $25-$30.
This summer's wine stroll came on an unseasonably cool July evening, yet the enthusiastic crowds filling downtown streets didn't seem to mind. Many merchants also ignored the lower-than-usual temperatures, with tables set on the sidewalks outside their establishments to encourage strollers to go inside.
