La Paz Chattanooga held its fifth annual Best Sangria Contest at its annual fundraiser, Sangria on the Bluff at the Hunter Museum. Each year, local restaurants compete for the title of Best Sangria in Chattanooga, as voted by the guests of the event.
The 2019 restaurant participants included Taco Mamacita, St. John’s Restaurant, Embargo ‘62, and the winners, Conga Latin Food.
This is Conga’s third year in a row winning the title.
As is tradition, La Paz and the winner will host a reception open to the public at the winner’s restaurant where guests can sample the winning cocktail as well as a variety of other menu items.
The reception for this year’s winner will be held at 26 E Main St. on July 18 at 6 p,m. For more information, visit the event page La Paz Chattanooga’s Facebook.
La Paz’s purpose in organizing the contest and subsequent reception is to highlight and support local small businesses that are integral to the Chattanooga community, especially Latinx business owners.
