Houston Restaurant Weeks just came to a close, but there's another foodie event, more specifically, a wine event, happening in our city in less than two weeks. Taste Around Town Houston is similar to restaurant weeks, except participating restaurants will feature wine specials, such as flights and dinner pairings. The two-week event lasts from September 15 until September 28; all of the participating restaurants will feature wines from Chateau Montelena, Penfolds and selections from France.

Taste Around Town is hosted by Bottlenotes, the same company that brought 80 Sips Around the World to Houston, and this will be the first time Bottlenotes hosts Taste Around Town in our city.
"It's intended to drive awareness and traffic to participating restaurants while offering new and existing customers a chance to discover new wines," Devin Parr, senior program manager at Bottlenotes, says. "It's an exciting experience for people who may not have visited a particular restaurant in a given market and it's also a way for current customers of a particular restaurant to experience new wines they might not have tasted before, or regions that they might not have explored before. It's a wine experience that's very similar to restaurant week, we're just focusing on wine."More »
