SALADO, TX- It is never too early to plan ahead for the best wine festival in Central Texas.

Celebrate spring by attending the biggest wine festival between Austin and Grapevine. There will be 20 wineries and vineyards pouring 100 different Texas wines, alongside 40 booths featuring art, delectable foods, and handmade goodies. At the Texas Wine & Rogue Art Fest, there will be wineries from Florence, Waco, & Meridian, as well as from around the state, such as Poteet, Fredericksburg, Marble Falls, Hye, Pittsburgh and Lubbock.. June Ritterbusch, festival organizer and winery owner says, “I am looking forward to trying the Cabernet Sauvignons, Tempranillos and Vermentinos, while other folks prefer the fruit wines and the sweeter styles”.
These wines will pair well with the handmade cheese from Texas Cheese House. If you’re looking for a more substantial meal try “In Hog Heaven” who specializes in pork sandwiches like, “Pignic Sandwich” a fried bologna sandwich. Foodies will also enjoy the olive oils from Spicewood Food Company. The full list of participants is available at www.saladowinefestival.com.
“I wanted to attract a different type of artist, so I named it ‘Rogue’ as in the artists are goin’ rogue,” Ritterbusch goes on to explain, “We are always searching for unusual artists and this year we have found some”. These Texas wineries are rogue entrepreneurs as well, and I think all the wine and art folks are going to create a great experience.”
