You may have heard about the Women for WineSense which has different chapters around the United States. The Texas Hill Country chapter is holding their 1st Annual Valentine Progressive Wine Dinner on Friday, February 13, which sounds like a fantastic event. Anybody can attend and you don’t need to be a woman!
This is how it works. During the evening, you will visit four Hill Country wineries. At each location, you will enjoy a glass of wine and a food pairing. It’s then time to move on to the next winery to enjoy the second course. But the best thing is you don’t have to drive! They will have vans available to transport you to the different wineries.
The starting location is William Chris Vineyards located in Hye, Texas. That’s because at the end of the evening, you will end up back at William Chris.
