The Austin Food & Wine Festival is almost here! We’re happy to once again be the official bookseller for this weekend long festival (April 25-27) that offers an endless array of tastings, libations and demos with some of the top chefs, sommeliers and winemakers working in the industry today. In addition to exposing festival-goers to unique cuisine, fine wines and fun, engaging programming, AF&W benefits the Austin Food and Wine Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering awareness and innovation in the Central Texas culinary community through grants, educational programming and events.
