Monday night TexSom celebrated the success of this year’s international wine conference with a grand tasting and awards ceremony event at The Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas. Andrew Chalk was there and so was our eagle-eyed photographer Desiree Espada. Hayley Hamilton reports on the wine represented. Andrew has run out of words (“Food was great. Wines were stunning”), so we’ll let Desiree’s pictures tell the story. Congrats to organizers, co-founders, and Master Sommeliers Drew Hendricks and James Tidwell.
