Texas Wines Take a Leading Role at Savor Dallas This Week

wineby Andrew Chalk

Savor Dallas, the largest food and wine event on the Dallas calendar, rolls into life this week with events every day from Thursday thru Sunday. For the first time in the history of the event, Texas wine plays a big role in the program.

On Thursday, at Savor The Arboretum (at which guests eat, sip and stroll their way around the grounds of the Dallas Arboretum amid the Spring flowering) and at the International Grand Tasting on Saturday night in the Dallas Convention Center there will be a special Taste Of Texas area.  

At the Arboretum, expect to find Becker Vineyards, Eden Hill Vineyard, Kiepersol Estates Winery and Llano Estacado Winery pouring some of their best wines.

At the International Grand Tasting, the above wineries return and are joined by Fall Creek Vineyards, Messina Hof Winery, Pedernales Cellars and Wedding Oak Winery.

Becker Vineyards, Pedernales Cellars and Wedding Oak Winery will also be serving at the Arts District Wine Stroll,  set in the Dallas Arts District. Due to space considerations, there is no separate Taste Of Texas area at this event.

There will likely be no other chance this year to taste so many Texas wines at a single event in the City of Dallas. It is a bonus that most of the wineries will have the owners and/or winemakers pouring their wines. Got a question? Here is the place to get a ‘hands-on’ answer.

This is no random selection of Texas’ 250+ registered wineries. They are all in the top tier and have produced wines that have won medals at wine shows, in some cases at wine shows in Europe as well as in the U.S.

All of the wines served in the Taste of Texas area are made from at at least 75% Texas grapes. Becker Vineyards is an event sponsor, as well as a presenter.
