2017 Mardi Gras Road Trip February 24th, 25th, & 26th
AND March 3rd, 4th, & 5th
It’s time to Laissez les bon temps roulez! Or in other words: Party with the Way Out Wineries at the Mardi Gras Road Trip.
Visit all 12 wineries during this two weekend celebration. At your first stop, collect your special tasting glass. Then at each winery, which will be dressed up like French Quarter bistros, have a New Orleans or Cajun style dish for your enjoyment along with a complimentary wine tasting. Ticket holders will be able to draw a doubloon worth discounts of $1, $2 or $3 off purchases from the winery you draw the doubloon. Costumes are encouraged and beads are plentiful, so get your party on and buy your tickets NOW!
Tickets are $30 per person and include wine tastings, food pairings, a special keepsake tasting glass, AND the doubloon discounts on purchases. Wine tastings will continue through the first weekend of March for ticket holders, however the food is only available on the first Road Trip weekend February 24-26. All wineries are open Friday 12pm to 6pm, Saturday 10am to 6pm, and Sunday 12pm to 5pm. Some wineries may have longer hours or additional promotions so be sure and check the individual websites or Facebook pages for more information. The second weekend, March 3-5, the Road Trip hours are the same as the wineries normal hours and include keepsake wine glass and wine tasting only, no food pairings.
Let the Good Times Roll at this annual celebration. Drive through still-sleeping vineyards to visit cozy wineries ready to party down before the vines start waking up and the hard work begins. Cajun food and WOW wines make this the party of the season. Each winery provides a complimentary wine tasting along with a Cajun or New Orleans style dish to pair with a selected wine. To make your trip even more fun, you can draw for doubloons for discounts on your purchases. Green, Purple and Gold doubloons worth $1, $2 or $3 can be spent at the winery you pull it from during the Road Trip dates. Costumes? You bet! Dress up to make the Road Trip more fun. Collect beads and other Mardi Gras goodies as you visit the wineries with your logoed WOW tasting glass in hand.
