Wine & Swine!

Last weekend we went to the Wine & Swine weekend organized by the Texas Hill Country Wine and Food Festival.  The whole weekend was fun, starting with a walkabout tasting at the AT&T Center Courtyard, where various chefs presented amazing dishes each prepared with one specific part of the pig. The next day I participated in a panel about wine and pig pairing -I found out I was on the panel the night before about 5pm, but thankfully it was laid back and all went well. The food from The Carillon restaurant was, as always, spectacular, and the wines that my pal Jerome Chladil picked were spectacular matches to all three dishes. My fellow panelists were rock stars of the wine world and I felt honored to have been asked to sit amongst them.

The pig roast took place at a ranch in Wimberley on Sunday, and it was one of the funnest events I have ever been to, honestly. Here are a few pics so you can see what you missed, but don’t worry, the Festival has more events in the planning stages coming soon, and of course the Festival weekend next spring. I’ll keep you posted of course!
