6 Reasons You Need to be at Corpus Christi Wine Festival
Take a tour of the wine world at the 2017 Corpus Christi Wine Festival --where you can taste so many wines on November 18! Get your palate ready to taste wine and hang out in Heritage Park. Grab your starter pack and get to tasting.
1. All the Wine
The best reason to go to the Corpus Christi Wine Festival is tasting plenty of different types of wine. Experience old world wine and new world wine and travel through Texas wineries in the Taste of Texas tent.
How to Taste:
Buy a Starter Pack - The starter pack has a sampler wine glass and 10 wine-tasting tickets. This is where you check out the wines and pick your favorites.
For More Wine - Buy additional tasting tickets. There are three different pours at the festival: a 1.5-ounce taste, a 3-ounce half glass, and a full 5-ounce glass. Most tastes will be between 2-4 tickets. When you find the wines you like you can purchase the glass for anywhere between 7-14 tickets.
Take Wine Souvenirs Home - Pick your favorite wine, buy a bottle (or two!) and take it home with you.
2. More Than Just Wine – Get Craft Beer too
3. Food Trucks
Get ready for lots of food. Plenty of food trucks will be on site all day to make sure you always have a bite to eat. Sample from some of the favorite - and delicious - local trucks!
4. Learn New Things at the Live Demonstrations
Stop in the arts tent and enjoy the live art painting in the grassy center at Heritage Park. Check out the Chef’s Showdown…think Chopped but Corpus Christi style. And get there early for the talks from wine makers, an olive company and a composting work shop.
Peruse through the vendor area for all kinds of treasures...and of course, wine-themed everything!
No festival would be complete without live music! Corpus Christi has some awesome local musicians and you can catch many of them on the main stage. You’re guaranteed some soulful music while sipping on wine.
Getting into the festival is free but bring some cash along to buy your wine tasting tickets and noms from the food trucks. Make your plans to get to Corpus Christi for wine, music, art and more at the Corpus Christi Wine Festival!
