Nearly 500 patrons attended the tasting and competition, held at the Post Oak Hotel, where 12 of Houston’s top somms selected their favorite wines and were rated based on their choices, presentation and knowledge. Bludorn, Le Jardinier, Trattoria Sofia and March were among the restaurants represented.
The evening raised a record-breaking $420,000 for the Periwinkle Foundation, which funds programs for children, young adults and families who are fighting cancer and other critical illnesses.
