THE WOODLANDS, TX – Food & Vine Time Productions recently held its latest in the annual Nach-Yo Ordinary Tequila Tasting events, held at The Woodlands Country Club Palmer Course.

Hundreds of people came to this all-inclusive experience that included great eats, music, tequila forum seminars, an H-E-B Gourmet Nacho Bar, craft tequila, mezcal and other agave beverages, a charity party wagon raffle benefiting The Woodlands Arts Council, craft beer, door prizes, and more.

Industry experts were on hand to guide, educate and share their passion with attendees about all things tequila. Indeed, the tequila forum seminary – presented by Doug Oldani, regional director of spirits for the Southwest Division of Palm Bay International – was an in-depth informative look at the differences between mezcal and tequila. Samplings of Tequila Bribon and Gracias a Dios Mezcal were distributed as part of the learning lesson.

Constance McDerby, co-founder and producer of Food & VIne Time Productions and this event, was excited at what this year would bring.

“It’s never the same-old same-old here,” she told Woodlands Online. This year, we actually have a tequila company from right here from Montgomery County. Bartlett’s, situated right up the street. They are relatively new and they wanted to expose their products to tequila aficionados who want to learn. There are some great tequila-friendly eats here; no one goes away hungry or thirsty. Our forum seminar will be particularly interesting.”

McDerby is also looking forward to the next event: Wine and Food Week’s 20th anniversary is right around the corner, coming to The Woodlands in June.

“We’re calling it a ‘gem of a celebration’ because the stone for 20th anniversaries is emerald, so you’ll see that emerald richness throughout with our Emerald Ball, emerald fashions, and signature art,” she said. “This year will include a wellness yoga lesson at sunrise led by a yoga master coming in from the island of Aruba in the middle of Market Street. That’s just one of the many new interesting twists we’ll be doing this year.”
