Pairing Texas wines with Texas wild-caught Gulf shrimp is culinary magic! Doing this in Texas Hill County, recently deemed by Wine Enthusiast magazine as one of the Top 10 wine tourism spots in the world, makes it even better. One of our most popular events – Cajun food and good wine! “Ragin Cajun” is the name of the event and the wineries along Highway 290 invite you to join them in celebrating the end of winter. Recognized as the #2 wine destination in America, second only to Napa, the Texas Wine Country wants to celebrate! No ticket to buy – just drive to each of the participating wineries and get your serving of a locally prepared Cajun dish paired with a sample of that winery’s fine wine, plus a “throw bead” necklace (how much more Cajun can we get?)!
Free during regular winery hours until samples are gone. Additional wine tasting fees do apply.
Please visit the website, or call 830-868-2321 for more information.
