Keeper Collection, the Austin-based food and wine society, is taking its popular "Wine Ride" across Texas for the first time, including its first event in Houston this weekend.
As part of a three-city, weekend-long series of tastings, the group will be hosting an Oregon wine tasting event at the Kipper Club Test Kitchen on Yale this Saturday beginning at 6:30 p.m. Click here for event and registration details.
Founded by Austin socialite and patron of the gastronomic arts, Diane Dixon, Keeper Collection regularly hosts food and wine events in its home city, including the Somms Under Fire and Chefs Under Fire contests where local restaurant professionals compete against one another in the spirit of promoting food and wine education.
The event, which will feature the wines of Chapter 24 Vineyards and Raptor Ridge, also offers guests a chance to experience the Kipper Club, the Heights-based restaurant group Treadsack's test kitchen (located at 4400 N. Yale St., Suite D).
Cost is $95 per person. Trade member discounts are available.
