Vino al Pastor

Wine Road 290, in cooperation with the Texas Pork Producers Association invite you to participate in a Saturday, June 21 EVENT.  Each winery will team with a top restaurant in the Texas Hill Country to present VINO AL PASTOR.  Vino al Pastor literally means wine & “Shepherd style” meat.  Tacos al pastor is a Mexican dish adoption of a spit-grilled meat, usually pork, served on a taco. 

Each winery will team with a restaurant to prepare a recipe using pork shoulder meat, usually marinated with a blend of different spices and herbs, and some “summertime” presentation.  When you visit the winery during the trail day of the event you will enjoy a wine especially paired with the PORK recipe served using PORK shoulder meat.  A GREAT way to spend a Saturday in June enjoying Texas Hospitality at the wineries finding out why we are the number TWO wine destination in the US(after NAPA) and one of the top TEN wine destinations in the WORLD!
