May 1 - New Braunfels, Texas

The 7th Annual Wein & Saengerfest will be held all day in historic downtown New Braunfels on Saturday, May 1, 2010. The big day includes wine and beer tastings, and a host of entertainment and activities that include continuous live music, a grape stomp, art market, food seminars, Chef’s Showdown, activities for the kids, and a farmers market - culminating with a street dance at Main Plaza.

Don't miss out on "Gourmage" The Best Cheese and Wine Shop South of Austin and North of San Antonio. Here's what they are up to for your enjoyment on Satur

1. Grilled Sandwich "Big Sal" an italian sausage, asiago, mozzarella, truffle oil, cremini mushrooms, roasted red pepper, onion on ciabatta
. Paired beautifully with 2008 Handley Sauvignon Blanc from California's Anderson Valley.

2. Sandwich "Francesca
" mozzarella, sun dried tomato, shitake, pepperoni, black olives on foccacia. Paired with 2008 Lange Pinot Gris from Oregon's Willamette Valley.

3. And with 2006 Storrs Christie Vineyard Chardonnay.... Sandwich "Buffalo Bill" Monterrey Jack, Blue Cheese, Buffalo Chicken on bruchetta - Monterrey Jack and chardonnay, a true American combo? The ripeness of the chardonnay should hang in there with the blue cheese as well and offer a comparative/like pairing of creamy textures.

4. 2006 Teira Zinfandel too! Sandwich "The Perry" port poached pears, Gorgonzola, candied pecan, star anise on brioche -the savory, dark and sweet flavors are more hedonistic when paired up with this Zinfandel.

Those staying for the VIP Wine Tasting will have a chance to sip on LIOCO "Durell" Chardonnay, Handley Cellars Pinot Noir and Pellegrini Family Cloverdale Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon.
