Tasting Colleyville

Some would say that "wine aficionado" is just a fancy phrase for "wino." But they do exist, these winemakers and experts who take the lowly grape and elevate it to the highest, most respectable quality. Jefferson Wilkes, of J.Wilkes Winery, is such a person. He'll be in Colleyville for a reception, informative talk and four-course meal, pairing his California coastal wines with haute cuisine. Suddenly the grape doesn't seem so lowly anymore. The J. Wilkes Wine Dinner is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at 62 Main, 62 Main St. in Colleyville. Admission is $110. For reservations call 817-605-0858 or visit jwilkes.com.
Wed., Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m.
