We have another FREE wine tasting event coming up for you!

Join us Friday April 16th, at Centennial’s “brother” store:  Big Daddy’s Fine Wine and Spirits at 1613 West Northwest Highway, near Luna Road, for a tasting of some great wines between 4 and 7 p.m.  We’ll taste-through the 20 Gauge Chardonnay, Pikes “The Red Mullet” Australian Red, Chateau Potensac Medoc Bordeaux 2002, enjoy a delightful Ricossa Moscato d’Asti.  It’s a special FREE event from “The Dinner Club” with Jim White.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Bring your friends.  Click here for directions to the location.

The Dali Wine Bar and Restaurant gang are preparing for another great wine dinner tomorrow night (Wednesday April 7) at 7 p.m.  Paul Pinnell calls it “a delectable California wine and dinner experience” featuring Oak Cliff Cellars, along with proprietor Jim Richardson, paired with five courses from Chef Joel Harloff.  The price is $75 per person, plus tax and gratuity.  Limited reservations available at 214-646-1947. 

Paul also notes in his eBlast to us that the Dali Patio is ready to rock.  Apparently, he is now ready to overcome Texas weather with his newly enclosed patio.  He also takes great pride in mentioning that his patio is “certified pet friendly by the City of Dallas” patio.  Party-on, Fido.

And, you’re invited to the big One Arts Plaza Spring party coming up on April 18th.  Ask Paul about when you stop by Dali, or when you visit Screen Door, Jorge’s Tex-Mex, Tei-An, or Fedora.

Chef Scott Gottlich tells us about a Glenlivet Scotch tasting and dinner coming up at The Second Floor Bistro-Bar on Monday April 26th.  Brand Ambassador Robb Edwards joins the fun, which features the Glenlivet 12, 15, 16, 18 year-old single malts, along with the extraordinary 21 year-old Glenlivet Archive.  This four-course dinner and pairing is $75 per person and INCLUDES tax and tip.  Call 972-450-2979 for a reservation.

It’s wine festival season in Texas.

Always pleased that Savor Dallas kicks off the wining and dining festivals in the Lone Star State in March, and then in April and May things swing into high-gear.  Well, get ready to party on with these coming your way!

The 25th Annual Texas Hill Country Wine and Food Festival is April 15 through 18 all around Austin.  It starts with great luncheons at Hill Country wineries, features a top drawer selection of chefs and wines from around the state at a taste-around in the beautiful Long Center for the Performing Arts, and wraps up with a popular outdoor shebang at the world-famous Salt Lick.

Not really a “wine and food festival” but one of the best local events around is back this weekend.  It’s the 25th Annual “Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival” in wonderful downtown Cowtown.  The four-day visual arts, entertainment and cultural event showcases a nationally recognized fine art and fine craft juried art fair, live concerts, performance artists and street performers on the streets of downtown Fort Worth, stretching nine blocks on Main Street from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center.  Join the fun April 8-11.

The Dallas Wine and Food Festival is back April 21-25 at venues throughout the city.  The 26th annual event features the annual “Rising Star Chefs Dinner” and a “Taste of the World” among others scheduled over the five day period.  Taste award winning wines from the Dallas Morning News Wine Competition.

Things are always hopping at Perini Ranch in beautiful Buffalo Gap, Texas.  Saddle up and hear to their big wine and food event April 23-25. The Buffalo Gap Wine and Food Summit features a big dinner from Chef Stephan Pyles and some great wine education from Master Sommelier Guy Stout.   Call 800-367.1721 for details or visit the website.

The popular San Antonio “New World Wine and Food Festival” is moving it’s long-time fall date to the spring!  Look for all the action to take place along the beautiful River Walk and environs of the Alamo City May 12 through 16.

A note of interest for fans of John Tesar, former Executive Chef of the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek.  He has joined Dallas Restaurant Group Concepts (Dallas Fish Market, Dallas Chop House, Go Fish Ocean Club and Fish Express), as the company’s Culinary Director.   He will work alongside newly appointed Corporate Chef Anupam “AJ” Joglekar to develop new restaurant concepts for the Dallas company.  Chef Joglekar will also serve as executive chef for DRG’s Dallas Fish Market downtown.

Happy wining and dining.  Until next time, cheers!
