May 19, 2023


Make It a Week of Wine and Food in The Woodlands
Are you prepared to experience the awe and passions of a week of world class wines with foods fit for royalty during Wine and Food Week in The Woodlands? Explore culinary delights from June 5th thru June 10th in various locations in The Woodlands. Start the week at Harrison’s at The Woodlands Resort with a kick-off dinner featuring seven courses prepared by the Chefs from the three Resort Restaurants. Australian wines will be prepared for each of the seven courses. These Aussie Wines will be introduced by Winebow Ambassador Simon Soloman. An electric violin will entertain patrons during this event which starts at 6pm that Monday.
Wines Around the World on Wednesday, June 7th features an extraordinary display of diverse wines. There are over 8,000 grape varietals throughout the world. Let’s see how many different grapes you can taste. If you want to expand your palette, this is a great event to participate in to educate yourself in our world’s great portfolio of wines. Travel to each of the rooms to enjoy wines paired with foods to get you in the “travel mode.”
Rose’Way: A Sweet Soiree will be hosted in one of Oprah Winfrey’s favorite Event Centers. Nestled in the old peach orchard south of Sawdust Road is The Peach Orchard Venue where pink Summer Sippers paired with fashion and a presentation by a dance company called Vittacca Ballet will continue the week’s theme of Wine + Food = Art! Roses’ are a wonderful option to white wines in our Hot, Humid Summers. You don’t need to sweat it since the air conditioned indoors, wines, and arts will make you feel COOL!
The Estrogen Event of the Year is Ladies of the Vine Tasting, Luncheon, and Panel discussions at the Club at Carlton Woods. The elegant event features intimate tasting stations featuring wines produced by women, followed by a plated luncheon, and panel discussion by a group of prominent wine women. Monique Studak, Principal at Thirst For Knowledge is the panel moderator, leading an awesome “Femm-Somm” panel of female Master Sommeliers, Wine Director and Winery owner who share their personal journey with wine as they speak to their pairings. BTW, men are also allowed at the event.
Friday of that week brings a more casual event at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, called Sips, Suds, and Savor. Wines, beers, foods, and live music will highlight this evening for both wine and beer lovers.
Saturday evening will culminate the week with two formal world class events. The Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting and Chef Showcase will be hosted in the entire first floor of The Woodlands Waterway Convention Center. Wine and Food Pods will grace the entire floor with five or six wineries per Pod along with Chefs cooking and sharing their food creations. Those same food creations will be judged by a talented group of famous foodies to crown the Best Chef at the event with the coveted Chef of Chef Awards and a cash prize. The event features over 50 restaurants and over 500 different wines. Inside this room is a guarded door to the Bayway Cadillac VIP Luxury Lounge with special wines. I had the pleasure on sipping on a $3,000 bottle of red wine from Italy several years ago.
Will you be here for these events? Tickets are going fast for these events with tickets available at now rather than later because there will probably be none later.
A quality event this big needs an outstanding sponsor. H. E. B. Grocery Stores is again the main sponsor with a presence throughout the week of events. Specials in several HEB Stores will run through this week of wines and foods. Look for the central HEB booth at Saturday’s world class event.
