Dripping Springs was once a sleepy ranch town 25 miles west of Austin on the way to the gorgeous Texas Hill Country. As with all things near Austin, it has changed. Today, it’s a thriving town in it’s own right with a blossoming wine community brought on by a new string of vineyards dotting the landscape. As Dripping Springs is only about 30 minutes from downtown, it makes an easy spot for a close-by day trip. If you are looking for an excuse to explore Dripping Springs, this weekend provides you with the perfect opportunity.
This Saturday, September 10, the city is hosting the 9th Annual “Dripping with Taste Wine & Food Festival” to tempt you out of downtown Austin. The Food and Wine Festival showcases more than 75 food, wine and spirit vendors that are made or produced nearby Dripping Springs.
This year the festival takes place at the Dripping Springs Ranch Park & Event Center, out on Ranch Road (RR) 12. A map is found on this website link for the Event Center.
