April 18, 2009 - “Big Dog Reds” at Texas Hill Country Food and Wine Festival and
The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas Rare Wine Auction
It’s one of the most-popular events at the Texas Hill Country Food and Wine Festival, and it sells out every year. Having barely survived the gut-busting “Stars Across Texas” the night before, we press our luck and checked out the third annual “Big Dog Reds” event at III Forks.
That evening, we honored the gracious invitation from Executive Director Rebecca Robinson to attend The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas Rare Wine Auction at the Four Seasons. We chatted with Sandra Spaulding and Mitch Mooney from Twin Liquors over champagne and hors deourves, while perusing the auction items.
The Four Seasons’ chefs created an amazing dinner of heavy hors d'oeuvres, and the auction bidding was lively - and for a good cause. Proceeds from the annual event benefit KLRU-TV Public Television, in addition to the Foundation’s scholarships and grants and the development of culinary and viticulture arts programs and projects throughout Texas.
