The best part of attending the Corpus Christi Wine Festival is tasting plenty of different types of wine. Experience old-world wine and new-world wine and travel through Texas wineries in the Taste of Texas tent.

How to Taste

  • Buy a Starter Pack: Choose from 2 starter packs that include a sampler wine glass, tote bag, and your choice of 20 or 40 tasting tickets.
  • For More Wine: Buy additional tasting tickets. There are three different pours at the festival: a 1.5-ounce taste, a 3-ounce half glass, and a full 5-ounce glass. Most tastes will be between 2-4 tickets. When you find the wines you like, you can purchase the glass for anywhere between 7-14 tickets.
  • Take Wine Souvenirs Home: Pick your favorite wine, buy a bottle (or two!) and take it home with you.

Peruse through the vendor area for all kinds of treasures, original artworks from local artists, and of course, wine-themed everything! And if the kiddos are joining, be sure to head over to the face painting booth. 


6. Jam Out to Live Music


No festival would be complete without live music! Corpus Christi has some awesome local musicians and you can catch many of them on the main stage. And don't forget about the silent disco also taking place on festival grounds!

Getting into the festival is free but bring some cash along to buy your wine-tasting tickets and noms from the food trucks. Make plans to get to Corpus Christi for wine, music, art and more at the Corpus Christi Wine Festival this year!
