It’s no mystery: Hundreds have a ‘grape’ time at Sumner Wine Walk

Sumner’s annual Mystery Wine Walk is always a popular event and this year was no exception.

Wine enthusiasts wandered the downtown area with glasses in hand, visiting the 15 participating businesses with doors open through extended hours.

The fermented grape libation is only part of the event’s title and besides sampling any of 29 different wines, visitors played detective by collecting clues which could solve the evening’s mystery.

Guests also were tasked with answering a trivia question at the businesses. Christine Kern and Juleen Pudists, co-owners of Northland Interiors, were among the participating business owners Saturday, and Kern explained the importance of guests learning trivia. The mystery of rhubarb was the theme and in order to solve the mystery and win the prize of a pie each month for a year, courtesy of Berryland Cafe, guests needed to have their event passport stamped at each business.

Sumner Downtown Association Director Arla Holszchuh was the event was “extremely well attended.”

Ascension Productions participated in the mystery again, with group members portraying characters as part of the mystery theme.
