Today is National Wine and Cheese Day !
A Wednesday worth celebrating. Today I raise a glass to all the local wine makes out there on the .Louisiana Wine Trail.
The enticing green vineyards of Louisiana offer oenophiles (or novice wine enthusiasts) a unique Southern twist on traditional wine profiles. Visit these Louisiana vineyards for wine tastings and live music amongst the vines.
Enjoy a bottle of Port of New Orleans or North Coast Dah Red from Pontchartrain Vineyards in Bush while listening to regional music during their popular Jazz’n the Vines concert series.
In July and August, head toward Landry Vineyards in West Monroe for a grape stomping to celebrate the harvest while sipping a glass of peach muscadine or blackberry merlot.
Looking for a wine event? Every year in May, thousands of people flock to the Crescent City for one of the most prestigious wine and food events in the U.S., the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience. The long weekend event includes a Vino Stroll, Grand Tastings and is host to the Louisiana Seafood Cook-off annually.
