The spice is back with more wines, food, music and dancing. Building on last year’s Latin-themed success, Crystal City will once again be serving up tasty tapas, tempting tequila, and a ton of fun.  I went last year and it was a blast! 

While enjoying more than 30 different wines hailing from Spain and South America, visitors to the festival can taste complimentary dishes from local favorites including Cabot Creamery, Café Pizzaiolo, CC Bistro, Domaso, Hamburger Hamlet, Jaleo Crystal City and Wine Shop, King Street Blues, Kora, Lebanese Taverna, Morton’s, Portofino Restaurant, Restaurant Mez, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Salsa La Glorias, Slice N Dice, Tagolio Pizzeria ; Enoteca and Zpizza.

The Latin flavor doesn’t end with just the food and drink - jazz will fill the air and local Latin American dance groups take the stage. Attendees can join in the fun with Rumba, Salsa, Samba and Cha-Cha-Cha lessons from the Salsa Room.

Definitely Franzia, great for in an RV or just a random day at the beach. I also like it when playing golf with my friends or taking in a brisk mountain stroll

I've been on a Malbec rose kick lately. No particular brand in mind, but generally they're fairly complex and not too sweet, but still really refreshing on a warm day.
