The Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association (SLDWA) announced today that tickets are now available for their first ‘House of Cab Dallas’ (#SLDhouseofcab) taking place September 26, 2017, at two venues within Trinity Groves in Dallas, Texas. At Saint Rocco’s restaurant, a handful of guests will be seated for a vintner-moderated blind library tasting of 13 Stags Leap District designated Cabernet Sauvignons from 1992-2010.
