San Antonio, Texas  (September 2, 2014): Raise your glasses as KLRN Public Television gears up for one of their largest fundraisers of the year. The San Antonio Wine Festival, a series of events that have taken place for more than 30 years. Serving wines and champagnes from all over the globe, the festival also has a great representation of Texas wines as well. With three very different events over the span of 2 days, one can honestly say that there is something for everyone at the San Antonio Wine Festival.


The weekend kicks off on Sept. 26 at the St. Anthony Hotel with the Wine Opener, an intimate black-tie event that serves seemingly never-ending scrumptious cuisines and a forest of wine bottles waiting to be uncorked. Henry Brun and the Latin Playerz will provide music to enjoy all night long. We’ll also have a silent auction so come prepared to bid. Tickets are $200 or tables of 10 can be purchased for $2000. (Tickets may be purchased on-line at www.saWINEfest.com.)


On Sunday, Sept. 28, we bust out more bubbly with brunch and jazz at the Champagne Brunch, also held at the St. Anthony Hotel. A variety of champagnes and wines are served along with a full and robust brunch— a combination to make any Sunday wonderful. A live performance by The Jim Cullum Jazz Band keeps the mood just right. Tickets are $75 or tables of 10 can be purchased for $1000. (Tickets may be purchased on-line at www.saWINEfest.com.)


Later that evening, we’ll cap off the Wine Festival with the Fine Wine & Cuisine Tasting, which will be held for the first time at the Pearl Stable. Guests will be able to walk around sampling delectable dishes and taste a selection of wine from all over the world all while taking in the history of the Pearl Stable. Participating restaurants include Nao, Boiler House, Tuk Tuk Taproom, Cured, Southerleigh, The Peach Café, Los Barrios Family Restaurant, Hotel Emma at the Pearl, Green Vegetarian Cuisine, Arcade, Bakery Lorraine and more. For the person looking to become acquainted with wine of all sorts and food to please any palate, this event is definitely a great choice. Tickets are $100. Tickets include valet parking, a commemorative glass and plate. (They can be purchased on-line at www.saWINEfest.com.)


This year’s San Antonio Wine Festival is chaired by Carlos Torres and TJ Eshelman.
