KLRN celebrates good food and great wine in one of its largest fundraisers of the year — the San Antonio Food & Wine Festival, which is taking place over 3 days in September.
The Wine Opener on Friday, Sept. 11, is a black-tie event featuring high quality wines and an elaborate spread of food prepared by Chef Mata at the St. Anthony Hotel. This event also features a silent auction of items such as a private condo vacation in Washington, DC, art, jewelry, catering packages, airline tickets and more.
The Champagne Brunch is a morning affair on Sunday, Sept. 13, that features a variety of champagnes and bubbly wines alongside a beautiful spread of food also hosted by The St. Anthony Hotel. A live jazz band completes the ambience.
The Fine Wine & Cuisine Tasting on Sunday, Sept. 27, takes the best of wine sampling and the best of local restaurants and combines it into a large event at the Pearl Stable. Fill your glass and fill your plate with a rich selection of good food and great wine. San Antonio’s best restaurants will be serving food and hundreds of wines will be available for sampling. Restaurants include: Boiler House, Citrus, Folc, Fresh Horizons, La Hacienda de los Barrios, Las Canarias, Las Ramblas at Hotel Contessa, Papouli’s Greek Grill and more.
“San Antonio is continuously growing in the food and wine industries and we thrive on bringing more attention to the local people making that happen. Our events are fundraisers for KLRN, but they also celebrate and feature the businesses that make San Antonio such a wonderful city. Events like ours bring people together as a reminder of the power of collaboration and the importance of supporting local,” said Arthur Emerson, president and CEO of KLRN.
