When renowned Houston chef Damian Mandola and his wife Trina relocated to the Hill Country a few years back, one of the first things they did was plant Southern Rhone and Italian grape varietals on their acreage near Driftwood. Mandola Estate Winery (13308 FM 150 W., 512/858-1470) is now established, and the Mandolas and co-owners Stanley and Lisa Duchman invite the public to help them celebrate at a grand-opening tour and tasting. Winemaker Mark Penna will be on hand, and the event will include a complementary tour of the facilities, a tasting of up to six Mandola Estate 2004 vintage wines, and the opportunity to purchase signed copies of Damian's cookbooks. Wines will also be available for purchase; 2:30-5:30pm, Saturday, Nov. 18.

Wine lovers will want to check out the first winery and tasting room located in nearby San Marcos at the grand opening of Three Dudes Winery (512/392-5634, www.threedudeswinery.com).
