Texas Hospitality: Dinner and Dancing at Luckenbach


LuckenbachimagesEach year of the Wine Marketing & Tourism Conference is different in terms of meals and events, depending on our local hosts. In Texas, our local partners dialed up hospitality to a new level.

Two lunches and one dinner were included in the conference price, which is pretty amazing. The lunches were at local wineries Woodrose Winery and Becker Vineyards, which we appreciated very much. But it was the dinner at famous local roadhouse Luckenbach that stole the show.

Luckenbach is a combination of a small town and roadhouse made famous by the Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson song. It has a dance hall, bar, pickers (strings, not grapes) circle, and even a post office.

Our evening at Luckenbach, hosted by the Fredericksburg CVB, included wine tasting, dinner, and dancing. Check out this awesome dinner menu, a combination of local Tex-Mex with the historic German roots of Fredericksburg:

  • Station One: Shrimp wrapped in bacon with asadero cheese and jalapeño sliver, beef and chicken street tacos, Broken Arrow Ranch axis tamales, and Honeybee Farms vegetable quesadilla
  • Station Two: Opa’s bratwurst with sauerkraut, Fredericksburg Farms zwiebelkuchen (German onion tort), Dutchman’s Schnitzel on a Sticket, and pommes frites cones.
  • Station Three: Mini pecan pie tarts, mini black forest tarts, and apfel strudel

Thank you to our local hosts, Visit Fredericksburg, Texas Hill Country Wineries and Go TEXAN!
