June 3, 2015

(HAYWARD, CA) – Wine lovers, foodies, entertainment seekers and Lusophiles (lovers of all things Portuguese) take note: the “Passeio do Vinho” is back and better than ever in its third year. The downtown Hayward wine stroll will take place on Saturday, July 18. Registration begins at 2:00 p.m. and the event kicks off at 3:00 p.m.

Participants will begin their journey in the light-filled City Hall rotunda before setting out for tasting stops at more than a dozen participating Downtown Hayward businesses. In addition to wine tasting, participants will enjoy a range of hors d'oeuvres, multiple “artists’ alleys” and a variety of live musical performances along the tour. Acclaimed Portuguese Fado singer Ramana Vieira will headline the event, further celebrating the city’s rich Portuguese heritage.

Tickets for the event are  available now online, or in person at Doc's Wine Shop (22570 Foothill Blvd.) and Hayward City Hall (777 B Street, Revenue Department). An exciting new partnership with sponsor TPC Stonebrae will provide Passeio participants with a free ticket to the final round of the Tour’s Stonebrae Classic
golf tournament taking place the same weekend.

“It’s incredible to see how this event has grown,” said City spokesperson Frank Holland. “People throughout the region are discovering the many wonderful things Hayward has to offer, and the wine stroll is a prime example. This year’s Passeio promises to be even richer and more exciting.”

Participants will receive maps of the event route to help them wend their way through downtown Hayward to the sounds of pop, jazz and R&B music performed by live artists. The tasting route will also feature locations serving non-alcoholic options, although all event participants must be 21 years of age or older.

A range of ticket options between $35 and $65 are available with a 10% discount for seniors. All ticket holders receive admission to the event, a commemorative wine glass, a Passeio do Vinho t-shirt and a single entry ticket to the final round of the Stonebrae Classic.
