Journey Along With Us!
If your love is tasting regional wines during your travels, then Wine Traveler is the happy hour for you!
Wine Traveler’s Happy Hour will have you packing your bags as we tour some of the best wine regions in the world right here at the Sterling Event Center.
We will enjoy chef selected regional food pairings that perfectly complement the evenings wine options as we listen to music while discussing our favorites and make new like-minded friends.
Because we believe in great charitable platforms, especially when their reach impacts the world, we are partnering with Austin’s own Whole Planet®, a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market® and dedicated to poverty alleviation. 100% of the net profits from the $10 cover charge go directly to Whole Planet.
So come away with us on a spectacular journey at Wine Traveler’s Happy Hour knowing you are giving back to such an important organization while enjoying select varietals from around the globe.
