Do you love wine, but don’t know much about it? Look no further! We are hosting a few mini educational classes together starting April 20th at 6pm until 8 pm. In these classes we are picking one varietal to showcase. We’re starting off with one of our favorites; Chardonnay!
This mini tasting class is designed for those who are new to wine and are looking for a casual and fun atmosphere to expand their palate. We will be going over the characteristics of Chardonnay, Oak vs. Unoaked, and what makes this wine a classic.
Each $20 ticket includes a tasting of 5 wines, and a complimentary glass of your favorite. Crackers and cheese will be provided to cleanse the pallet in between tastings. We recommend having a small meal before attending, as food will not be provided. Must be 21 or older to attend. The link to our Eventbrite is attached below.

HARVEST UPDATE: As I mentioned before, the February freeze has greatly reduced the amount of chardonnay grapes (Night Flight) and sangiovese (Rootin’ Tootin’). There will not be any public harvests for those grapes as there are not enough to pick.
Join us for a wonderful afternoon of wine tasting and art! Admission is FREE. Wine tasting by reservation. Saturday AND Sunday
Like everything else, COVID-19 has changed up our festival considerably. The wine tasting will be by reservation only, but you are always welcome to buy wine by the bottle and enjoy with your friends.
No tasting tickets this year–please make reservation for wine tasting, or plan to purchase bottles to share with friends.
As always, we will be featuring several Texas wineries, a tremendous viewing of artists and their works from around Texas, and, of course, delectable foods.

We are sorry to announce that we are cancelling the 2020
Texas Wine & Rogue Art Fest on March 28 -29, 2020. We are grateful for your many years of support
and have sincerely given this difficult decision considerable thought. Our forecast is that many folks in Texas will
decide to forgo large public gatherings in the next few weeks. Our
goal every year is to produce a quality event for both attendees and
vendors. Given the ever present weather
risk coupled with headwinds from progress in improving the village and the known
unknowns of contemporary current events, we felt compelled to cancel.
To our vendors, wineries and partners, we don’t want to ask for
your time, effort and money if we feel we cannot deliver on a buying
audience. All vendor fees have been
Our next big scheduled event will be a grape stomp on
October 17. We hope that you will add
that to your calendar.
This event has consistently drawn 3000-5000 people to the
Wine Festival and the Village of Salado throughout the weekend in the previous
11 years. We have poured as many as
29,000 tastings which is equal to about 1200 bottles. The economic impacts include not only the
sales tax on the wine sold, but also the other businesses of Salado including
restaurants, unique shops and hotels.
We hope and pray that this moment passes quickly and we
promise that when it does we will are going to throw one heck of a great party! Thank-you for your understanding, folks like
you are the reason we stay in business.
