Louisiana Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Louisiana? Then look for a a Louisiana Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Louisiana wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Louisiana has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport
and Alexandria, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of LA wines. Many specialize in fine LA wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Cork Afternoon Wine Tasting Festival
in Shreveport in April, Southern Breeze Wine & Culinary Festival
in Baton Rouge in Spring, or New Orleans Wine & Food Experience
in May, you may find wines from Whitman Cellars, Estancia Winery,
Calandro's Fine Cellars, and many others at Louisiana wine festivals.
In addition to wine, these events can include excellent food to
sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs. And often you can
expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better with wine than
a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out playing
their best music to accompany the wine tasting. Whether you're visiting
Lafayette, Eunice, New Orleans and Mandeville you can find a local
wine, food and music festival that will perfect your LA vacation.
The most popular time of year for these festivals are the Fall and
Summer months, but they are also scheduled during holiday months
as well. Imagine sipping some great wines while watching the annual
Christmas Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may not have
time to visit all of Louisiana's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
