A Night of Illumination Awaits at the Popular H-E-B Wine Walk at Market Street
THE WOODLANDS, TX – One of the most beloved wine events is back to wind down this year’s Wine & Food Week events in The Woodlands. The 18th annual H-E-B Wine Walk at Market Street takes place Thursday, October 6th.
The theme this year is “Illuminated,” and this fun event will shed light on great wines, culinary creations, and lifestyle enthusiasts. Fans are sure to light up with excitement as they relish this annual all-inclusive celebration. The move to the fall was so successful that Wine & Food Week will continue to host the event in October, giving a weather advantage to wine-goers who can enjoy cooler temperatures while sipping and strolling their way down Market Street. The event encourages attendees to put on their favorite bling, light up attire and enjoy a night of illumination. Don’t have a way to “self-illuminate”? Light sticks and glow necklaces will be randomly distributed. Either way, it will be a sight to see as the night lights up at Market Street for this treasured event.
Covering three blocks of Market Street and jammed packed with a cornucopia of culinary creations, the H-E-B Wine Walk offers wine displays with industry experts, craft beers, live music, and incredible wine experiences. More than 40 wine tasting tents, 40+ craft beer selections and dozens of culinary offerings from area restaurants, chefs and caterers will be featured on Market Street. Bring your thirst as tasting stations will offer choices from 250+ beverages.
Want to get ahead of the crowd and enjoy the best of the best? Devoted wine enthusiasts can upgrade to the Volante Integrated Planning VIP Premium Lounge with lounge seating, 50+ premium wine selections, an additional hour of enjoyment, elevated food offerings and entertainment. And VIPs receive a VIP Swag Bag and the keepsake collectable “big” glass.
Rub elbows and mingle with tastemakers who have made their mark on the culinary and wine industry in remarkable ways. Nosh your way through the myriad of flavors from the generous restaurants showcasing signature dishes.
