Cheers to a Successful and Record-breaking Tenth Anniversary



of the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair



People near and far gathered in Sugar Land to enjoy the tenth birthday celebration



Houston, Texas, May 16, 2013 – Irresistible foods, wines, celebrity chefs, mixology and unabashed merriment marked the tenth year of the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair (sugarlandwineandfoodaffair.com) celebrated recently from April 24 to 28. This milestone birthday broke multiple records in efforts to support a permanent scholarship endowment at the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston.



One of the most anticipated culinary attractions in Texas, the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair pulled out all the stops to make it an unforgettable five-day event. The 2013 festival set a record in number of attendees, escalating more than 20 percent over previous years.  The affair’s five-day line-up of events was propelled to new heights, featuring wine and spirits seminars hosted by big personalities, award-winning chefs from across Texas, Louisiana, California, Kentucky and Maine, bringing unseen creative flair, and a specially constructed Gallery Furniture Pavilion that hosted live cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs.



 “What a spectacular five days!” exclaimed Keri Schmidt, founder of the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair and president of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce. “The overwhelming response from our guests, chefs and sponsors was incredible. It is hard to believe we just celebrated our tenth year. The continued growth has been phenomenal, and more importantly, the efforts in supporting the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston has been tremendous. We look forward to the next ten years as this celebrated event continues to share great wines and food.”



On the coattails of the tremendous success of this year’s festival, the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair has announced that next year’s event will be held from April 23 to 27, 2014.
