If you live to eat (and appreciate a good bottle of wine, too), you’ll want to keep the upcoming Wine and Food Week in The Woodlands on your calendar. It returns next week —  Monday, June 6 through Sunday, June 12. Produced by Food & Vine Productions, this year’s powerhouse lineup includes more than 100 chefs who will be there. And hundreds of wines to sip and savor.

“Thrilled doesn’t even come close to how the Food & Vine Productions team feels about having our most long-standing event again,” Wine & Food Week co-founder Constance McDerby says. “And to celebrate 18 years, we felt it was a good time to uncork a few new events for our lineup.”

This year, The Woodlands’ Wine & Food Week honors the memory of Cleverley Stone, the food pioneer who founded Houston Restaurant Weeks in 2003 (now the city’s largest annual fundraiser of its kind), making it her life’s mission to beat hunger in the Bayou City.

Some of the events this year include Rose’ Way, A Sweet Soiree at the new Peach Orchard venue and For the Love of Texas, a celebration of the big, bold flavors Texans love. Think good barbecue, tangy Tex-Mex and cocktails under the stars.

The ever-popular Ladies of the Vine luncheon, tasting and panel discussion is also returning to The Club at Carlton Woods, promising a tasting panel and lively discussion.

But this Woodlands mega food and wine week is about more than just games.

You’ll also be able to catch up with the “Fresh Faces” making their mark on the restaurant scene. That means a taste of more than 26 new restaurants and the talented chefs behind their ranges, including visiting newcomers like chef Brett Vibber and Daisuke Itagaki, plus a roster of Houston area favorites, including chefs Ryan Hallsted, Alex Au-Yeung, Ara Malekian, Brandon Silva, the 2019 Chef of Chefs winner, and many more.

If you love cheese, presenting sponsor H-E-B has you covered with the enormous artisan cheese board that will be at The Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase. That means mammoth wheels of cheese and all their tasty go-withs.

The Wine & Food Week culminates with the Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Ballroom, where acclaimed chefs will compete for the coveted GOYA Foods Chef of Chefs Award. Winning secures the Waterford crystal trophy and a $5,000 cash prize. Not to mention chef bragging rights.
