Vino & Pasta Pasta and wine? Yes, please! Texas Hill Country/290 Wineries along US 290 will team with a top restaurant in the Texas Hill Country to present “Vino & Pasta”. There is no ticket to buy, but most wineries have a “tasting fee” they normally charge; there is no additional charge for this event. Just drive to each of the wineries and get your serving of a special dish paired with a sample of that winery’s fine wine. Wine Road 290, Fredericksburg, Texas. See web for map. wineroad290.com
