Texas wine? It's good with food, and the Texas Hill Country Wineries want to show it off at the end of this month.
The Texas Hill Country Wineries Traveling Showcase two-day event will kick off with a wine dinner at Silo Elevated Cuisine 1604, to be followed on Sept. 29 with a wine tasting, with cuisine, at the Pearl Full Goods Building.
At Silo, enjoy a meal paired with six of the Hill Country's best wines and conversations with representatives from the wineries. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres. It is $85 per person, plus tax and tip. To make reservations, call Silo at 210-483-8989.
On Sept. 29, join winery owners and winemakers from 17 of the Texas Hill Country Wineries as they showcase a sample of their portfolios at the Pearl Studio in the Full Goods Building, 200 E. Grayson St. Cuisine will be available for tasting along with the 35-plus wines being tasted, and you'll receive a custom stemless wine glass to take home.
Texas Hill Country wineries have required all participating road show wines to be analyzed by a third party for quality and consistency — so you can be assured that you're getting quality-driven wines.
The event is from 6-9 p.m. Admission is $50 per person in advance, $55 at the door if available (cash only). Tickets are non-refundable. Go to the Texas Hill Country website
to order tickets. Event attendance is limited, advance purchase is highly recommended.
Texas Hill Country Wineries Cut Price for October Wine Trail Tickets
The busiest time of year at the Texas Hill Country Wineries is harvest and crush — and the busiest time of year for wine events across the state is Texas Wine Month, which is Oct. 1-31.
This year, the price for this popular event in the Hill Country has been cut to $15 per person. Also, you can use all 31 days to explore the 27 Texas Hill Country Wineries. Each winery will offer at least one, and up to three complimentary tastes of wine (winery choice and/or discount may exclude reserves, ports and wines already discounted).
This is an opportunity to experience more than four dozen award-winning wines throughout the month. Wineries will also be offering a 15 percent discount on three-bottle wine purchases (winery choice). Read more at the Texas Hill Country Wineries website
