The Wine Walk is presented by Food & Vine Time Productions, founded by Constance McDerby to create and produce events that aim to benefit The Woodlands community. McDerby has worked on producing the Wine Walk since it was first held in 2005.
“Nobody goes hungry. Nobody goes thirsty. It’s a lot of fun,” McDerby said. “We encourage [people] to find something different, and find what they really enjoy and discover something new.”
The Wine Walk will offer over 250 beverage selections for attendees to taste along with dozens of culinary offerings from area restaurants, chefs and caterers.
The Wine Walk also raises awareness and revenue to benefit local charities. The 2021 charity benefactors are New Danville, an organization that works with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council.
The charities will have booths where attendees can buy items, such as handmade goods and locally created art.
McDerby said the event will be limited to 3,000 tickets sold. The 2019 Wine Walk had about 5,000 people in attendance, and attendance was limited to just 500 in 2020 due to COVID-19.
“We’re here to support the community, and we would really like the support as we continue to grow back into the former format of Wine & Food Week,” McDerby said. “We’re looking to return to that in 2022.”
