Events & Happenings

Otto’s has orchestrated and taken part in many amazing events in the Hill Country. From a showstopping “Snout-to-Tail” dinner in an elegantly rustic barn to exclusive wine dinners showcasing our thoughtful pairings of food and wine. We have even trekked out to one of our favorite taco joints in Mason, Texas to take it over for a night with food inspired by the remarkable wines of Mason County. We always enjoy the opportunity to be involved in community events such as the Chef’s Corner at The Fredericskburg Farmer’s Market.

Otto’s also offers a unique dining experience for your private events. The Bistro makes the perfect backdrop for an intimate gathering of friends. Or let us come to you. Either way, you and your guest will enjoy an exquisitely executed menu complemented by our professional service and attention to detail.

May 21, 2019 6:30pm

The first bit of our two part wine dinner series for this week of May welcomes winemaker Andrea Mullineux to the Hill Country. What better way to welcome her than having friend of Otto's & La Bergerie and baker extraordinaire, Josh Raymer as guest chef for the evening?

Andrea hails from the Swartland where she and her husband Chris have sought to reestablish a sense of terroir in the region after the South African wine industry took a more global approach in the nineties. The accolades have since accumulated, including...

The second part of the series goes back to more familiar ground for our Riesling enthusiasts as we welcome 10th generation winemaker Constantin Richter of Weingut Max Ferd Richter. In contrast with Andrea's drive to return to her region's historic grape growing and wine making practices, Constantin has set out to continue his family's ancient traditions.

The wines are truly of a place, the Mosel, and anyone who was at our dinner in January with Johannes Selbach will very much enjoy further enjoyment of this region's noble varietal. ASG Culinary Director and charcuterist, Julia Poplawsky has a menu set out that will highlight authentic German cuisine and match the elegance of these wines.

We are very fortunate to have hosted so many visiting winemakers, these events really give great context to the wines we've enjoyed for so many years as well as to connect with the people whose hard work turns into world class wine....

The McPherson family shouldn't need an introduction but let's just say that their history stretches as far back as you can go with any current Texas wineries, grape growers or winemakers. While most of us in the Hill Country have seen the explosion of new producers and growers first hand, we really have Doc McPherson to thank for setting the stage for what is now a dynamic and fast-growing industry.

Nonetheless, Kim McPherson hasn't rested on his family's laurels and has continued to innovate and make precise and approachable wines. Our goal is to showcase a broad spectrum of...
