June 14-20: Wine & Food Week
Region’s Best Food and Wine Fest:
WHAT: The 6th Annual Wine & Food Week in Houston, the largest, most comprehensive epicurean and wine adventure from Aspen to New Orleans, brings together renowned chefs to showcase their culinary expertise partnered with more than 500 wines at more than 40 sensational events. This year’s Wine Wizard is Eric Arnold, Deputy Lifestyle Editor of Forbes.
Live chef demonstrations, hands-on classes and a wine auction are but a few of the exceptional offerings. Music, entertainment, shopping, and wine education seminars for the novice to the enthusiast top off the week of casual to fine wine and dine experiences.
The big three events include the H-E-B Wine Walk @ Market Street, a taste and stroll experience in a European-style center; Sips, Suds & Sliders, a celebration to tantalize the taste buds with specialty beers, Texas wines and a gourmet slider competition; and the grand finale Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Texas Monthly Chef Showcase, the ultimate adult evening sampling delectable cuisine and hundreds of wines as chefs representing more than 50 restaurants compete for Wine & Food Week’s Waterford Crystal Chef of Chefs Award and a $5,000+ prize package.
