Marconi Avenue on the Hill
If you love wine and walking (and stumbling drunk down sidewalks arm-in-arm with your pals), you’ll want to attend the Hill Wine Walk on Saturday, May 7.
The annual event is one of the best ways to explore St. Louis’ famed Italian neighborhood.
The event starts at the Rose of the Hill (2300 Edwards Street)
. Guests who have already purchased tickets can register at 11:30 a.m., but the walk starts at noon. Tickets were pre-sold, and have already sold-out, so stay tuned for next year's event if you missed this one.
The wine walk gives a souvenir sampling cup and guests are set free to skip around the Hill, enjoying samples of wine given to you at each participating shop, market and restaurant along the way. There will also be live music and entertainment for you to enjoy as you go and people who live in the neighborhood also come out to the sidewalks to celebrate.
Many businesses on the Hill are offering discounts and snacks for the event, too. Here’s a pro tip: Take advantage of those snacks. If you don’t, you might end up falling into the bushes by the time your tour of the neighborhood is complete. (All of those wine samples add up.)

Note: This article has been updated to include the fact that the event has since sold out. Tickets were pre-sold, and cannot be purchased at the event. We apologize for any confusion.
