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. ·

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.
