Sip, Savor, and Celebrate: Shreveport’s Catahoula Wine Mixer Expands to Lafayette

The team behind Shreveport’s renowned Catahoula Wine Mixer is “on the road” and ready to bring a weekend of fun and flavor to Lafayette. The First Ever Catahoula Wine Mixer Lafayette is set to uncork in Lafayette, Louisiana, this spring!

The First Ever Catahoula Wine Mixer Lafayette will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at The Village of River Ranch, with an exclusive Chef’s Table Dinner to take place on Friday, April 19.

The Catahoula Wine Mixer is an outdoor event celebrating wine, cuisine, and culture from different regions of the world. Attendees will enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of regions including France, Italy, Latin & South America, and California. Each area will be transformed into its own festival, featuring a lineup of local top-notch chefs, curated wine pairings, and local entertainment to transport guests to different corners of the world.

The Chef’s Dinner

We will kick off the event with an exclusive, eight-course Chef’s Dinner on Friday, April 19, 2024. Limited Tickets are available for the Chef’s Dinner. Each chef will prepare a single course complete with wine pairings exclusive to the Chef’s Dinner and not available at the Saturday event.
