The 9th Annual Dripping with Taste Wine & Food Festival is not an event to be missed. Sponsored by the Dripping Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau, the festival was created to exhibit the growing number of local vineyards, breweries, distilleries and gourmet food fares blossoming in the Dripping Springs area. It is a culture that is alive and thriving, and the festival has more and more participants each year. Come get a taste of the goods this year, with over 75 vendors showcasing samples of their delicious delicacies and libations. But there's more to it than just the chow! This year, the festival will also offer live music, drink mixology classes, cooking classes, grape stomping, games, specialty vendors, and more!
Here's a few of the Texas tastes we're excited about from our neighbors:
Epicure is the new restaurant on the block this year, and we can't wait to taste the creations of Executive Chef Julio Llop and Wine Curator Jerry Gray at the festival. This hip new eatery brings global comfort food, artisanal cheese and fine wines to town, boasting the highest quality foods at the height of freshness. Their fare is a festival must-try.
Don't miss out on delicious hand-crafted spirits from the Treaty Oak Distillery, which produces a variety of spirits from vodka to bourbon, using their own unique distillation process.
Sample award-winning olive oils from Texas Hill Country Olive Company, produced with olives grown right on their land here in Dripping Springs. They also feature flavored olive oils and house-made balsamic vinegars to complete your bread dipping experience!
Bell Springs has been a part of the Dripping With Taste Festival since the very first year. We are proud advocates of the 'Buy Local, Stay Local' culture, which the festival helps to support. Come find our booth this year to taste three unique Bell Springs Wines, which will also be available for purchase at the event.
Shout Out to Bell Springs Wine Club Member Stephanie Holtzendorf for her plug in Destination Dripping Spring's article covering the festival, where she says: “This isn’t your typical, snooty, wear a tie, spit out good booze festival. It is a true celebration of the Texas Hill Country and the flavor of Texas.” Well put, Stephanie!
This year’s festival takes place on Saturday afternoon, September 10th, at Dripping Springs Ranch Park & Event Center from Noon to 6pm. See you there!
