Meet The Maker presented by JW Marriott


This year, we are excited to invite you to the Meet the Makers tent presented by JW Marriott, where we’re bringing together an exciting lineup of the finest wine and spirit makers for a series of intimate tasting session, each filled to the brim with knowledge.  

In between Maker sessions, bar expert Tad Carducci, co-founder of the Tippling Brothers and a JW Marriott partner, will also be serving up three specialty cocktails from the JWM Bar located under the tent, highlighting some of the best spirits from featured Makers such as Tito’s Vodka, Herradura and Treaty Oak. Be sure to swing by to sample some of the best wines, spirits and cocktails around!

The JW Marriott is one of Austin’s newest players on the burgeoning culinary scene featuring three restaurants— Osteria Pronto, Corner and Burger Bar. Feel free to make your way to the Grand Tasting tent throughout the weekend to check in on Chef Jennifer Etzkin, who will be sharing some of her Texas-inspired dishes from Corner!
