Tasting Texas
Wine + Food Festival

Culinaria is excited to announce the return of the annual Tasting Texas Wine + Food Festival from November 8-10, 2024. This four-day epicurean experience allows food and wine lovers alike to explore the unique flavors of Texas for themselves. Guests can look forward to enjoying live music, educational panels, and sampling a variety of cocktails, wines, and craft beers in one of San Antonio’s popular open-air venues. 

 

Taste delicious bites from Texas chefs and restaurants, mingle with beverage makers, and engage in interactive activities throughout all four days with something for everyone. From cooking classes teaching guests how to make tasty dishes with a southern twist to hands-on workshops on pairing — there's no shortage of exciting experiences to be had and the best part is that it’s a party with a purpose and the beneficiary is the James Beard Foundation with $250,000 committed to supporting culinary students in Texas.
