Mardi Gras in Wine Country
There’s no need to board a plane to Louisiana to celebrate Mardi Gras in New Orleans when LaVelle Vineyards is just a quick 15 minute drive out of the city of Eugene. The LaVelle family knows how to throw a Fat Tuesday shin dig with all the benefits you’d get in New Orleans. From elaborate costumes and masks to jambalaya and king cake, the winery was packed with Mardi Gras party-goers.
