Since our founding, the Wine & Food Foundation of Texas has donated $1.5 million back into the Central Texas community through our mission of cultivating and investing in the wine and food community through education, appreciation, and enjoyment.

We are dedicated to providing direct financial support to those in the wine, culinary, and winemaking communities through scholarships, travel stipends, and professional development opportunities through our Wine & Culinary Education Program. In 2019, we awarded 31 scholarships to sommeliers, chefs, and winemakers who used these funds to study, become certified, and learn through travel to wine regions around the world.

Do you want to receive information on scholarships and educational opportunities? Contact us at info@winefoodfoundation.org to be added to our mailing list.
