Scenes from Txak Blok (Txakolina festival)
Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to experience these truly unique wines and ciders from the Basque Country and Spain. And a special thanks to the inimitable Señor André Tamers who made the trip especially for this fantastic event…
André selflessly demonstrated how to use a porron.
Peppers stuffed with olive and wrapped in marinated anchovies.
Whole figs wrapped in jamón serrano.

The whole world is talking about Txakolina.
Here in Austin, we’re drinking it!
