The highest-end wine event at Savor Dallas is the Reserve Tasting, which gets the ball rolling on Saturday night. Here are some pictures to indicate the kind of wines available.

    I had the best time Saturday night. Me and my crew of ravenous diners had written off Savor the last few years where it was really Savor Irving but our interest was piqued when I spotted that the vents were back in the titled city. So much better. I will not go back to any event at the Irving Convention Center.
