Touring in Style

Two weeks from tonight, I will be touring the world with about 500 other food and wine lovers in Austin at the 12th annual Tour de Vin.  The event, held at the W hotel features domestic and international wines paired with bites from of Austin’s best chefs.

The Wine and Food Foundation knows how to throw a party.  When I attended two years ago as media, I was truly impressed by the organization and attention to detail.  I am grateful for the opportunity to cover it this year.

Tickets can be purchased online through the foundation.  They are $100 for the general public, $80 for foundation members, and $20 of each ticket goes to support their 2014 beneficiaries.  If you purchase by this Sunday, September 7th, your wristband can be mailed to you.  No need to wait in a pesky line.  And if you’re heading that way from SW Austin, we can carpool.  Who wants to join me?  Anything to avoid downtown traffic/parking, right?

Wine lover. Oenophile. Wanna-be-sommelier. Mom. Mommy. MA-MAAAAA!!!!!! Grocery shopper, budding nutritionist, dish scrubber, meat cutter. My love of wine started in my mid-twenties. I have no formal training, just a decent palatte and a desire to learn. And I am pretty good in the kitchen. The more I learn, the greater the desire to educate myself through articles, blogs, travel, and surrounding myself with others who like to discuss wine. When things calm down (what's that?) in my life, I may choose a formal education in the arena, but for now, I will taste, share, and taste some more. My descriptors may or may not be "correct." My pairings may wow, surprise, or may not "work." But, the best learning is through trial and error, right? Especially when the "trial" means drinking more wine. So, if you are up for a little wisdom about wine, and a lot of wine-induced wisdom, come along for the ride
