Set aside your micro-brews and margaritas! Join Moxy Castro for a delicious discussion of how wine pairs with interior Mexican street food.

Street food is one of the most fun, visceral ways to explore culture, language and flavor.  In Austin, we have a vibrant street food scene, with over 1,000 local options. Bringing your own bottles to picnic or eating in a food court or grabbing food to go, especially in our current environment, is a great way to keep exploring new textures, sensations and flavors-and to support smaller, local businesses.

Let’s play with why acids, bitters, sweets, oak, aromatics, textures work and don’t work and with what!

About the IMBIBE Series

IMBIBE means to consume or absorb – and that’s exactly what you’ll do in our classes . . . consume and absorb wine, food, and knowledge. IMBIBE takes place every week, alternating between Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6pm (unless otherwise noted).  These classes are a ton of fun and loaded with great education! Our members have told us that Wednesdays and Thursdays are their favorite days of the week because they love these virtual tastings so much!
