For wine connoisseurs and newcomers alike, the Village of Salado hosts its second annual Salado Swirl starting at 5 p.m. Saturday.

The wine tasting event will take place throughout Salado, with local businesses hosting wines from nearby Texas wineries. Visitors also will be able to sample local cuisine. Thirteen wineries will be represented and paired with 13 Salado businesses. Music will be provided by the shops.

Ticket purchases cover wine tasting at each location and hors d’ouevres, as well as transportation. Starting at 5 p.m., the Salado Trolley will run up and down Main Street until the event ends at 9.

“We’re hoping to get as many guests as possible,” said Lance Dugger, intern at the Salado Tourist Department and Chamber of Commerce. The goal is to attract more than 200 people this year, he said. “We’ve only ever received positive feedback.”

There are a limited number of tickets that may be purchased in advance at or call (254) 947-8634.
