What pairs best with a fall afternoon in the Texas Hill Country?
Savoring all the flavors of the Texas, of course. Come out and sample the largest assortment of Texas wines, craft beers, gourmet foods and spirits available under one roof, at the 8th Annual Dripping with Taste Wine & Food Festival. Sponsored by the Dripping Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau, the festival was created to showcase the growing number of local vineyards, breweries, distilleries and gourmet food fares peppering the area. That number continues to grow and so does the festival. This year’s festival includes over 75 “tasteful” vendors and an estimated 2000 food and wine enthusiasts.
One of the more exciting additions to the festival has been the inclusion of Distilleries. As of last year, rum, vodka, gin and even a little whiskey have joined the party, many of which are made right here in the area. This year we are adding tequila.
But, the fun doesn’t stop at the tasting. The festival also includes cooking demonstrations, Wine 101, live music, specialty vendors, a free photo booth and actual grape stomping. You can even get a t-shirt to
prove you did it.
“This isn’t your typical, snooty, wear a tie, spit out good booze festival. It is a true celebration of the Texas Hill Country and the flavor of Texas,” says 8th year festival attendee, Stephanie Holtzendorf.
This year’s festival takes place on Saturday afternoon, September 12th, at Dripping Springs Ranch Park & Event Center.
