“Good wine, good friends, long life” really sums up this event for our whole team said Wine & Food Week Co-Founder Constance McDerby as the Food & Vine Productions team closes in on its 20th anniversary in 2024 of launching this regionally prominent wine and food event. We are also big believers that art, like wine and food, feeds our souls so we are paying tribute to that idea with this year’s theme, as well as highlighting The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, which is an event beneficiary. Chefs and winemakers alike treat their craft much like an artist does making sure each dish or wine is a true work of art,” added McDerby.
