Scenes From Buffalo Gap Wine & Food Summit
Mon April 18, 2011 7:19 pm

How had six years gone by since I attended the Buffalo Gap Wine and Food Summit? It's the best of the small-scale wine and food fests in Texas--maybe in the country--and the most scenic, with walk-around tastings under the live oaks behind the Perini Ranch Steakhouse and a gala seated dinner in a big white tent lit by chandeliers. The weather cooperated this year, well, pretty much; it was chilly Friday night but wine is a very effective antifreeze, and Saturday was glorious. Here's a quick gallery of pictures; you'll recognize steakhouse owner Tom Perini in one of them; he was the cover boy for Texas Monthly's April feature "Cook Like a Texan." With his wife Lisa Perini, Tom is the co-organizer of the festival.  Mouse over the pictures to see captions. (And where the hell is Buffalo Gap? Thirteen miles south of Abilene, folks.)
