Salado Wine Festival
The Salado Texas Wine & Rouge Art Festival. Salado has grown in popularity among those who like rustic Texas kitsch and bead making. In addition, there are some fine antique shops. Salado has also developed a reputation for wine tasting... fermented grapes help make cast-plastic garden rabbits irresistible. Joking aside, the Wine Festival was simple and successful. Twenty vineyards participated. For $10 you get a wine glass and tickets to taste six wines. The second discovery was that Texas vineyards are putting out some excellent wines. My favorite was the McPherson Viognier.
