Best of all there will also be some really great wine tasting classes to be presented on Saturday afternoon by

The Wine & Food Foundation, High Plains Chapter

Scroll down the High Plains Winegrowers site till you see information about these two classes.

The classes will be taught by Daniel Kelada. Daniel is an Executive Sommelier, Master Candidate and Senior Wine Instructor with the International Wine Guild and teaches accredited wine certifications and seminars throughout Texas and around the country. He is also the Founder of GUSTO Tastings, which is a wine education and event production company who’s niche is curating wine experiences, whether educational in nature or social. There will be a very reasonable cost to these two classes, $12 per session or $20 for both. Wow!

The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas is a non-profit organization. Proceeds from this event will benefit the South Plains Food Bank.

So check out the High Plains Winegrowers web site for all the details.

The Binghams will be there in full force.

Blessings,

Betty
