Wine Road 290 presents Chili & Chillin’ – July 19

July 18th, 2014 by Jeff

Wine Road 290 wine trail, invite you to participate in a Saturday, July 19 EVENT. Each winery will team with a top restaurant in the Texas Hill Country to present Chili & Chilin. We know, it’s hot, but Texans love their chili and the wineries want to emphasize the versatility of wine and food pairings. Come, taste and realize that anytime is a great time for Chili & Chilin.

Some of the top “hill country” restaurants will “team” with a winery and prepare a Chili and serve to you with a wine from the winery, but of course you will have the opportunity to taste other of the fine wines from the winery during your visit.

Take the weekend, get away to the TEXAS HILL COUNTRY and see why we have been rated the second most desired “wine destination” in America.

Each of the 12 wineries will team with a top restaurant in the Texas Hill Country to present Chili & Chilin. No ticket to buy, just drive to each of the wineries and get your serving of a Chili tasting paired with a sample of that winery’s fine wine. ·

Visit www.wineroad290.com for map. Just 40 miles between the west-most winery (Chisholm Trail Winery) and the east-most winery (Texas Hills Vineyard). The other ten wineries are in-between.·
No TICKET required! Most wineries have a small “tasting fee” that is normally charged; there is no additional fee for the EVENT.

Wineries participating (listed from west to east) are: Chisholm Trail Winery, Fredericksburg Winery, Rancho Ponte, Four Point Cellars, Grape Creek Vineyard, Torre di Pietra Vineyards, Becker Vineyards, Hilmy Cellars, Woodrose Winery, Pedernales Cellars, William Chris Vineyards & Texas Hills Vineyard.

Wine Road 290 “Vino al Pastor” – June 21

June 15th, 2014 by Jeff

Nine wineries, making up the Texas Wine Road 290 wine trail, in cooperation with the Texas Pork Producers Association invite you to participate in a Saturday event. Each winery will team with a top restaurant in the Texas Hill Country to present VINO AL PASTOR. Vino al Pastor literally means wine & “Shepherd style” meat. Tacos al pastor, is a Mexican dish adoption of a spit-grilled meat, usually pork, served on a taco. Each restaurant will prepare a recipe using pork shoulder meat, usually marinated with a blend of different spices and herbs, and some “summertime” grilling presentation. When you visit the winery during the trail day of the event you will enjoy a wine especially paired with the PORK recipe served using PORK shoulder meat. You will also receive a copy of the recipe enjoyed at the winery.

The wineries along Highway 290 from one mile east of Johnson City to nine miles west of Fredericksburg make up one of the most successful wine travel destinations in the U.S., second only to NAPA. Each of the wineries offer their normal tasting and the PORK pairing taste will not cost any extra.

Wineries participating are Becker Vineyards, Bell Mountain Winery Tasting Room, Chisholm Trail Winery, Fredericksburg Winery, Grape Creek Vineyard, Lost Creek Winery Tasting Room, Texas Hills Vineyard, Torre di Pietra Vineyards, and Woodrose Winery. Wineries recommend that you plan to spend the evening locally (maybe a B&B) and enjoy dinner at one of the restaurants. Some of the participating restaurants are August E’s, Cotton Gin (Cabernet Grill), Navajo Grill, Silver Creek Restaurant & Bier Garten, and Silver K Cafe, with more to be named later.

Come and enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country as you tour some of the finest wineries in Texas, tasting some of Texas best wines while enjoying the Hill Country’s finest restaurants’ creations.
