Chalet of the Golden Fleece Thanks Everyone for Successful Wine Walk
October 27, 2022
On behalf of The Friends of the Chalet of the Golden Fleece Museum, we’d like to thank all the many people and businesses that helped make our Friday, October 14th Downtown New Glarus Wine Walk such a success. We could not have done this event without the fourteen Wine Walk locations: Art & Soul Tattoo, The Bramble Patch, Brenda’s Blumenladen, Chalet Cheese Haus, The Duke’s Stash Quilt Shop, Earthship Treasures, Lollygag Antiques, New Rose, Pioneer Valley Outdoor Store, Railroad Street Boutique, Rusty Raven, Sisters, Sugar River Shoppe, and A Well Worn Story/Lekko Beauty.
As always, our New Glarus Chamber of Commerce supported and advised us at every step of our planning. Staff from both the Village of New Glarus clerk’s office and the New Glarus Police Department were of tremendous help guiding us through the state Wine Walk requirements and local application process. There are many expenses connected with an event like this, so 2022 was the first year that we sought sponsors. Many thanks to this year’s sponsors: The Bank of New Glarus, Dirty Dog Taphaus, and Roy’s Market.
To the delight of our Wine Walk attendees, the Chalet Landhaus Inn & Restaurant, Kennedy’s Ice Cream & Grill, Rusty Raven, Sportsman Bar & Grill, and Tofflers Pub & Grill all generously donated door prizes. The wine that we served included those from Bailey’s Run Vineyard & Winery, Minhas Winery, and Southern Italy Imports as well as brands provided by Chalet Cheese Haus and New Rose. And the Woodford State Bank supplied us with a variety of “goodies” for our Wine Walk goodie bags.
We sold 90 tickets for this year’s Wine Walk and are grateful to each and every participant for supporting our “hidden gem” of a museum. We’ve already started planning our Wine Walk for the fall of 2023. Please follow the Chalet of the Golden Fleece Museum on Facebook so you don’t miss any of the fun!
