4 Texas Wines with 4 amazing cheese pairings presented in courses.

Certified Sommelier, Jennifer Beckmann of Slate Mill Wine Collective will be presenting the wines.

Join us in the creamery at River Whey where we will be presenting a beautiful evening celebrating Texas wine and our own Texas-made artisanal cheeses. We have partnered with Jennifer Beckmann (formerly of Kuhlman Cellars) who is setting off on a new wine adventure - Slate Mill Wine Collective. She will be presenting four Texas wines: Tatum Cellars Roussanne, Tatum Cellars Rose, 1851 Vineyards Tempranillo, and 1851 Vineyards Tannat. Each of the four wines will be presented in courses paired with specially curated dishes to delight your senses. There are only twelve seats available and this event will sell out!
