World's Worth of Wine in an Afternoon

At the wine station sponsored by King Street Blues, participants were offered samples of five different wines, including selections from Kim Crawford (pinot grigio and chardonnay), Drylands Estate, Nobilio and Thorn Clark "Terre Barossa." Wine pourers watched carefully to ensure that sample tickets were deposited into yellow plastic buckets before serving up samples of wine.

— The Washington Wine Academy and Crystal City Business Improvement District teamed up for the third annual 1K Wine Walk Saturday and Sunday. Nearly 1,800 people from around the area spent an afternoon sampling wine varieties from around the world, including Germany, France, Australia and some domestic vineyards. Some people came with friends in costume, including a group of women in pink shirts wearing panda ear headbands, and others took the "race" mentality to heart and wore running gear.

Tickets are still available for the Washington Wine Academy and Crystal City BID's other event, the 1K Beer Walk, on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26 and 27. More information on that walk is available at www.washingtonwineacademy.org.
