Alameda, CA – Girl Scouts of Northern California (GSNorCal) is proud to bring the first Cookie and Wine Walk to the Island City, in partnership with local wineries Building 43 Winery, Urban Legend Cellars, and Rock Wall Wine Company on February 15, 2020 from 1-5 PM. The walk will feature tastings at each winery with specially selected wines paired with four of Girl Scouts’ world-famous cookies: Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Trefoils®, and Tagalongs®.
Tickets cost $25 and are available via Eventbrite. Each ticket includes a walking map and tasting passport, a commemorative glass, a raffle ticket, and four wine pairings with Girl Scout Cookies. The winning raffle ticket will receive a GSNorCal branded duffel bag with a box of every GSNorCal cookie (8 boxes total), a bottle of wine, and Emma Frisch’s cookbook Feast by Firelight.
Spend an afternoon wandering Spirits Alley at the former Alameda Naval Air Station (aka Alameda Point), sampling local wines and supporting both local businesses and Girl Scouts’ entrepreneurship! This is an event for adults 21 and over. Girl Scouts will be selling cookies along the walking route but will not be on any premises where drinks are served. All profits from ticket sales will stay with Girl Scouts of Northern California to further support experiences for girls.
