Niche (Services/Products your company provides:)
Founded in 2003, the Tasting Rooms are family-run wine bars, wine retail stores, and gourmet cafés. TTR is "a comfortable place to get serious about wine." With three locations in Houston, each one offers a unique wine and food experience. At The Tasting Room, you can sip, taste, linger, socialize, eat, have a business meeting, have a wedding, learn more about wine, buy wine to take home, purchase a gift card, or just generally enjoy all the pleasures life offers.
As for MAX'S Wine Dive, it was designed to be a laid-back and comfortable restaurant, MAX's blends a casual, industrial feel with a top-notch food and wine program. Serving "gourmet comfort food" and wines from around the world, MAX's mantra is "Fried Chicken and Champagne?... Why the Hell Not?!" On any given night, you can find a 20-something sitting at the bar next to a 60-something – each drinking the same Aussie Shiraz with the "Texas Haute Dog" and listening to killer tunes from the juke box. Open until the wee hours of the morning on many nights, MAX's shines with its "late night menu" and "reverse happy hour". Sunday brunch features fried chicken and pancakes… not to mention some serious mimosas. Enjoy it all in a casual, hip atmosphere...while rockin' out to killer tunes on the juke box.
I was offered the job to head of the Events Department for The Tasting Room and MAX'S Wine Dive in early March 2009. With my love of great food and wine and my knack for event planning, I knew it was a perfect fit from the beginning. This really is a company I am proud to represent.
TTR and now MAX'S Austin has fabulous event spaces, talented staff, and we're able to offer the best pricing you'll ever see on retail wine. Can a girl ask for anything more?
