The weather is cold and business is slow for winemakers this time of the year. Texas winemakers will be using this opportunity to host wine dinners in local restaurants and wineries.
The dinners are highly enjoyable for Conroe residents, but for the winemaker it is an artistic means to represent their trade. Attendants are sure to have a good time with the artists telling stories and creating an atmosphere of comfort, guiding you through their creations and sharing the wonders of “vinification.”
One location, Bernhardt Winery, has the scene set with music, entertainment, dancing, and the relaxing warmth of a fireplace. Bernhardt Winery is also scheduled to hold seminars on January 30, February 6, and February 27 sharing information on their vineyard and winemaking process.
Upcoming information and events are listed below, so let the wining begin.
