Get ready to be transported to vineyards near and far during the 13th Annual WineDiscovery April 29, 7:00PM to 11:00PM, at The Marq in Southlake. Hosted by the Metroport, Keller and Southlake Rotary Clubs, the event has raised more than $300,000 since its inception for local youth scholarships and community service projects.
Guests will enjoy unlimited samples of more than 24 Texas, domestic and international wines – including red, white, port and sparkling – from six local wineries and distributors: Bear Creek Spirits & Wine in Colleyville; El Wine Chateau in Keller; Three Vino in Roanoke; Misa Imports in Dallas; and Off the Vine and Wine Fusion in Grapevine. In addition, experts will be on hand to provide details of grapes, growers and vintages.
New this year, the event will feature craft beer tastings from Ballast Point Brewing Company and Hook & Ladder Pizza Co., which will serve craft beer from Shannon Brewing Company on tap in its trademark “all-American fire truck.”
A wine and craft beer tasting is not complete without food and this year’s culinary sponsors offer fare to complement all varietals: Bonefish Grill, Howard Wang's, il Calabrese, RA Sushi, F&G Eats, Texas Bleu Steakhouse, and Hook & Ladder Pizza Co. Desserts will be provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes and The Ice Cream Place.
The evening will include live music and red carpet photos with beauty pageant winners Miss Southlake and Miss Fort Worth. Silent and live auctions showcase local goods and services, art, domestic and international travel packages. The raffles have the best odds in Texas and feature first choice of "half of the pot" or custom-designed jewelry by Diamonds & Designs.
The majority of proceeds from WineDiscovery are awarded as scholarships to local graduating high school students in Carroll ISD, Keller ISD, Northwest ISD, Westlake, Christhaven, and Tarrant County College. Remaining proceeds are used for local grants to non-profit organizations – such as the Roanoke Food Pantry; Metroport Meals on Wheels; Victory Therapy Center to support equine assisted physical therapy; and Gallant Few to prevent veteran isolation – as well as humanitarian projects in Nicaragua, Mexico or Cuba.
