Wine is a beverage that you can pair with virtually anything. The range of white wines to red wines and sweet wines to dry wines offers a perfect compliment to food ranging from sweet desserts to juicy steak dinners. Grapes for wine are harvested in various places across the globe, giving each bottle of wine a unique taste depending on its country of origin. Wine is celebrated at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo each year, but that is not the only big wine tasting event that takes place locally. On May 17th Bridgewood Farms will be hosting its 11th annual fundraiser called Around the World in 180 Minutes!

Around the World in 180 Minutes is a large wine tasting event taking place at the Glade Cultural Center at 2000 Woodlands Parkway in The Woodlands. This wine tasting event is not like any other wine tasting event out there though! Given the name Around the World in 180 Minutes this fundraiser intends to do just that, all right here from The Woodlands. This event features a virtual wine tour that will take you through some of the world’s most beautiful wine regions such as South Africa, Italy, Austria, France, and of course Texas! This year Around the World in 180 Minutes will be spotlighting Texas wine country and the tasty wines that come from wineries in our home state. Tickets for Around the World in 180 Minutes can be purchased through Bridgewood Farms’ website for $75 or at the door of the event for $85. The ticket to the event includes all the tastings for all the wine stations, yummy snacks provided by the event, live entertainment, and more!
