Are you looking for the best wine and food pairing experience in Central Texas? From Austin to El Paso, and Fort Worth to Driftwood, there are plenty of fine dining restaurants offering special themed menus with exceptional food and wine pairings. Wanderlust Wine Company in Downtown Austin is a great place to start. They offer four-course dinners by reservation only, which usually sell out quickly. Each menu is designed to pair perfectly with wines and offer you an informal setting while enjoying the sunset over the valley.
In Juárez, Mexico, Bent Oak Winery opened in 1918 and moved to downtown El Paso during Prohibition to be closer to the border. They specialize in growing Tempranillo grapes and make their wines from Texas grapes. C. L.
