Get ready to be transported to vineyards near and far during the 15th Annual WineDiscovery in Southlake. Hosted by the Metroport and Golden Triangle Rotary Clubs, the event has raised & awarded over $335,000 for local youth scholarships and community service projects since the inception of WineDiscovery. Guests will enjoy unlimited samples of more than 30 Texas, domestic and international wines – including red, white, port and sparkling. Local wineries and distributors include: Bear Creek Spirits & Wine in Colleyville; El Wine Chateau in Keller; Three Vino in Roanoke; Off the Vine in Grapevine and Wolf Imports. Craft beer tasting will again be available this year, along with port and cigars on the patio.
“WineDiscovery is all about tasting new wines and finding new favorites that are affordable,” says event chair Mary MoeGeorgia, noting that featured wines will have retail values of up to $40.00. “Lesser known Texas, domestic and international wineries are featured, selected by experts to be exceptional values. We bet your favorite selections are not the most expensive!”
A wine and craft beer tasting is not complete without food and this year’s fare will complement all varietals. Culinary sponsors include: Bonefish Grill, Hook & Ladder Pizza, Howard Wang's China Grill, RA Sushi, The Cocoa Exchange, Nothing Bundt Cakes and The Ice Cream Place. The evening will include live music, red carpet photos with Miss Texas Madison Fuller and a wine pull featuring wines with values up to $100! The silent auction showcases local goods, services and art and the raffle has the best odds in Texas featuring winners first choice of a prepaid gift card worth over $900 or a custom-designed pendant by Diamonds & Designs.
Most proceeds from WineDiscovery are awarded as scholarships, over $275,000 to date, to local graduating high school students from Carroll High School, Northwest, Byron Nelson, Westlake Academy, Christhaven, and Tarrant County College. Remaining proceeds fund local grants to non-profit organizations – such as the Roanoke Food Pantry; Metroport Meals on Wheels; Victory Therapy Center and GallantFew, local community service and humanitarian projects in Nicaragua, Mexico or elsewhere. There are no administrative costs, so 100% of net proceeds go to charity.
