Wine is like a good friend. You meet, then spend the rest of your life finding out what makes them unique. Widely known and regarded as one of the top wine authorities in Texas, restaurateur and sommelier Michael Vilim leads guests on an exciting wine journey in The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas’ upcoming Wine A to Z class.
