Somehow the stars have never aligned for me to attend Savor Dallas and I’ve regretted it.  Unfortunately it has always been sandwiched around the time that we take my daughter on holiday for Spring Break.  This year, I will get to attend one event before I leave for a blogger’s trip to Spain and I’m excited. 

If you are a wine lover based in Dallas, you’ve got to love the mission of Savor Dallas – showcase the best of Dallas – educate and entertain with the best wine, spirits and beer out there and show off culturally what Dallas has to offer.  Isn’t that why we live here, y’all?

In its 11 year history Savor Dallas has become a signature event and since CrowdSource, a Dallas Morning News events division, acquired it from Jim White and Vicki-Briely-White, there is some big momentum to take it to the next level.  And now that my favorite charity, Café Momentum is hosting a Community Brunch, complete with gospel music and food, I couldn’t be happier. 

Here’s the line up and details for the four-day festival. 

  • Arts District Stroll, March 19 from 5-7:30 pm
  • Savor the Arboretum, March 20 from 6:30-8:30 pm 
  • The Reserve Tasting, March 21 from 5:30-7:30 pm
  • The Grand Tasting, March 21 from 7-10 pm 
  • The Community Brunch, March 22 from 11 am-2 pm

There’s also The Toast of the Town Series that is scheduled in conjunction with the festival.

Tickets are available via the Savor Dallas website and they range in price from $40 to $150 per event.  Use the special code WINECHICK, which is good through the Friday of the festival and gets you 15 percent off the Arts District Wine Stroll and The Grand Tasting.  Anyone joining me at the Arts District Wine Stroll?  I’ll see you there.
