TexSom Registration Open Now

By Hayley Hamilton Cogill |

Just got an update on the upcoming  Texas Sommelier Association Conference(TexSom)  , and the lineup looks fantastic.  Celebrating its 6th year, TexSom and Texas’ Best Sommelier Competition is the brainchild of founders James Tidwell MS, CWE, Sommelier at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Las Colinas; Drew Hendricks MS, CWE, Director of Beverage Education for Pappas Restaurants in Houston; and Guy Stout MS, Education Director for Southern/Glazer’s Distributors.

The event will occur over 2 days, August 15 and 16, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Las Colinas and will include a wine filled line up to make any novice or pro gain insight and find new favorites in the expansive  world of wine.  Classes range from the wine of Southern Italy, Sicily and Sardinia to Greece to Southern France to Portugal.  The evening of the 16th TexSom will hold their Grand Tasting, and from what I can tell, over 100 wines will be available to taste including old standards to new favorites from around the world. 

The Best Sommelier in Texas competition will be taking place throughout the weekend with some of the best in our city competing.   An extra bonus, The Four Seasons has a special conference rate for the weekend.
If you have the slightest interest in wine this is a great event to enjoy.  More information available here.
