Catahoula Wine Mixer 2017 will be held at Provenance Community, Saturday, Nov. 18, from 2:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. The outdoor festival will celebrate wine, cuisine, and music from around the world. Patrons walk or shuttled throughout parks and overlooks in the Provenance neighborhood to different “regions of the world” where wine, food, and music are all paired together to pay homage to each locale.
Each guest receives a complementary tasting glass to use and take home as a remembrance of the event. Guests will taste and compare their favorite wine styles from various regions of the world including California, France, Italy, South America, and Oceania. Local wine retailers will be pouring at each station, providing guests with an opportunity to ask questions in an intimate setting. Each region will have local chefs and local musicians showcasing cuisine and sounds inspired by that part of the world.
At the event’s conclusion, patrons will gather at the Windrush Lake overlook, where dessert and sparkling wine will be served underneath a Chinese lantern launch. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit Shreveport Green, for tree planting and other improvements in area parks.
Catahoula Wine Mixer is organized by Provenance Community, PinPoint Local Marketing, Twisted Root Burger Co. - Shreveport, Pelican Tents & Events, and Rhino Coffee.
