Tasting Tents and sponsor photography, Sugar Land, 2017.

The Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair toasts its 15th anniversary this weekend, with five days of tastings and events.


The festivities kick off tonight with the One if by Land, Two if by Sea dinner — surf-and-turf fare with beverage pairings — at the Sugar Land Heritage Museum. Those in search of a more casual (but just as deliciously boozy) outing should hit up Thursday’s Bar Fight event, featuring a cocktail throwdown and Mexican street foods.

The Grand Tasting, the festival’s main attraction, hits the Marriott Town Square on Friday night, featuring food from chefs like Alex Padilla (Ninfa’s on Navigation) and Tai Nguyen (SeaSide Poke). There’ll also be plenty of wine and cocktails, so grab a glass and make the rounds! Continue the trend the next day at the Sip & Stroll at Brazos River Park. Snack on bites  from Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Hopdoddy, Fluff Bake Bar and more.

And if four days of bites and booze isn’t enough — and, well, even if it was too much — there’s a morning-after cure in the Bistro Brunch, also taking place at Brazos River Park. Bottoms up!
