Venue: Texas Hills Vineyard (with the tanks)
Kathy and I have had the great pleasure of traveling in the countries that border the Mediterranean and each country has its own version of a fish stew; boulillabaise (Provence), cacciucco (Tuscany), cuippin (Liguria), etc. We were always fond of this soup, where you appreciate the wine-based sauce (broth) by "sopping up" ample quantities of the sauce with heavy, full-bodied bread. We love the idea of sharing this kind of meal with our friends. Cioppino is a fish stew that originated in San Francisco by the Italian-American fishermen in the late 1800's, very much like the other fish stews listed.
On July 15th, Kathy and I will share a Cioppino meal in the winery with up to 24 of our Friends! We are limited to 24 guests because we will be eating among the tanks in the winery (where it will be cool).

DRIPPING SPRINGS CHOCOLATE COMAPNY is a family owned business with all members of the family involved in various aspects of the process. Several years ago we went on a family mission trip to Nicaragua. During this trip they saw the poverty and need for jobs to strengthen the economy. After much searching, discussion and evaluating the local markets in central Texas, they decided that a chocolate company using ethically sourced beans was a great way to support the local economies. At that point they started learning everything we could about chocolate and now hope to share it with you!
DRIPPING SPRINGS CHOCOLATE COMAPNY starts with ethically sourced raw cacao beans. Their mission is to provide you with the best chocolate possible while helping improve the lives of the farmers and communities that grow the cacao.
Of course all ticketed chocolate tasters are allowed an extra 10% off any wines purchased at the event!
