Tour de Vin Tickets Still Available!

Tour de Vin is an international wine tasting held annually by the Food & Wine Foundation of Texas to benefit their regular programs.

The annual Tour de Vin, a fabulous tasting of selected fine wines from around the world, will be held Thursday evening, October 9th, from 6:30-9pm on the rooftop plaza at the Whole Foods flagship store at 5th and Lamar. The festivities benefit the Food & Wine Foundation of Texas and also include a mouth-watering array of international dishes prepared by more than twenty of Austin's finest restaurants and caterers to complement the featured wines. Tickets are $50 for foundation members and $75 for the general public and are still available online at or by calling 327-7555. Our wine expert Wes Marshall assures me the selection of wines they'll be pouring are a steal at these ticket prices. The lovely Patricia Vonne will be on hand to provide live musical entertainment and the weather should be a perfect Austin October evening. Go hungry and thirsty and enjoy yourself!
