Are you in Houston and a little jealous watching your friends’ Facebook pics from last night’s Rodeo Uncorked event? Or were you there and need a little more rodeo wine in your life?
Well, you are in luck!
Dave Phinney of Orin Swift Cellars will be in Houston at the Heights Kroger store tomorrow, Tuesday, February 23, from 2- 5 pm, ready to sign bottles and talk wine. (If you haven’t shopped that Kroger for wine, get ready– it’s a pretty amazing selection!)
Phinney is in town to accept the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s “Grand Champion and Best of Show” Wine Competition award for his Mercury Head Cabernet.
I have had the honor of serving as a Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo wine judge for the past 3 years through my startup, VineSleuth/ Wine4.Me, and I can tell you this year was a very stiff competition– so many of the wines were outstanding, so we are definitely talking good juice.
Mark your calendar and swing by to meet Dave Phinney, snap a selfie with a wine-star, and pick up a bottle to get signed for that next special night.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 23, 2-5 pm
WHERE: Kroger in the Heights: 1035 North Shepard Dr.
