Then at each winery, which will be dressed up like French Quarter bistros, have a New Orleans or Cajun style dish for your enjoyment along with a complimentary wine tasting. Ticket holders will be able to draw a doubloon worth discounts of $1, $2 or $3 off purchases from the winery you draw the doubloon. Costumes are encouraged and beads are plentiful, so get your party on and buy your tickets NOW!

The second weekend, March 3rd-5th, the Road Trip hours are the same as the wineries normal hours and include a keepsake wine glass and wine tasting only, no food pairings.
