Taste Addison will also have plenty to drink
It's the fourth stop of a national Robert Mondavi wine tour.
ADDISON Addison being the big restaurant town it is, its annual Taste Addison is best known as an eating event with bites from more than 60 restaurants.
Headliners at the three-day festival, which runs from Friday through Sunday, include Third Eye Blind, Traci Lawrence, and Chris Young. Local chefs will do demonstrations, and there's a midway with carnival rides.
But Taste Addison is also making a play for wine drinkers, too, by hosting the Robert Mondavi Discover Wine tour. Addison is the fourth stop on what is a nationwide wine tour that brings an interactive, educational wine experience.
The installation features wines from the Robert Mondavi Private Selection and Robert Mondavi Winery portfolios. Robert Mondavi wine experts share their knowledge on everything from winemaking to wine pairing. Between the tasting stations and the informative and friendly hosts, you’ll leave the Discover Wine experience with a greater sense of knowledge and confidence.
Hours for the Robert Mondavi Discover Wine tour are 6 to 9 p.m. Friday; 12 to 7 p.m. Saturday; and 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
As for the tasting part, if you like tacos and sliders, you'll be in heaven. There'll be Pulled Pork Sliders from 300 Dallas, Meatloaf Sliders from Buttons, Meatball Sliders from Mi Piaci, BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders and BBQ Burger Sliders from The Quarter Bar & Grill, catfish Sliders from Addison Point, and Burger Sliders from JC Burger House. Tacos, well, just about everyone is doing one kind of taco or another; too many to list here.
