My brick-and-mortar business is located within the Downtown District, but not within walking distance of the event. I will be functioning as a "Pop-Up Business" during Hot August Stroll.

Please click the appropriate selection. When you do, you'll be given the option of selecting additional cases. If you would like us to provide a wine bottle opener, whole punch (for participant punch cards) and toothpicks for your cheese when you pick up your wine and cheese, please add the new "Convenience Package" for just $8.00 more.
We cannot make any guarantees, but we will take your preference into consideration if the selection from the distributor allows. Selection preferences will be based on the order in which Merchants submit this form. What type of wine would you prefer?
The DDD is making a basket full of fun swag and gift items from Downtown Merchants as a drawing for Wine Stroll participants! This is a great advertising opportunity for you. Would you like to donate an item(s) to the raffle basket?
