Whenever I have a question about Texas wine, I call Steven Kruger, the wine savvy sommelier at the Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort. Already being an expert in wines from around the world (I call him about those too), Steven was one of the first pros to truly learn about and seek out good Texas wines.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who admires Steven’s wine acumen. Raymond Vineyards of Napa Valley selected a handful of distinguished sommeliers from around the country to blend their 2009 vintage. Not surprisingly, Steven Krueger made the list!
You’ll get a chance to taste his creation for Raymond Vineyards at a very special wine dinner Thursday, May 17 as part of the Culinaria Arts Festival. Steven’s wonderful wine will be part of a wine dinner pairing, and one of my favorite SA chefs is in charge of the menu – Chef Ernie Estrada. Plus, two of the nicest wine makers you’ll ever meet will also be present – Dr. Richard and Bunny Becker.
Seating is limited, and I can assure you a wine pairing dinner at Francesca’s is always special. For more info, call 210-558-2253.
