How it all began….

In the fall of 2003, Jerry and Laura Lasco opened The Tasting Room in Uptown Park (“TTR”), a small, European-style wine bar and café that quickly became a popular destination for Houston’s wine and food lovers. Since then, Lasco Enterprises has expanded TTR Uptown Park to its current 9,000 square foot size and added three more TTRs to the market.  During that time, Lasco Enterprises also introduced the highly regarded MAX’s Wine Dive restaurant concept into the Houston market (2006) and since then has opened additional MAX’s Wine Dives in other major Texas cities and in other states.

As we grew, we recognized that, within Houston proper, there was a need for a unique event solely dedicated to the appreciation of fine wine and food. So we decided to fill that void and we introduced the Houston Cellar Classic: A Celebration of Wine and Food.  Over the years, this event has developed into the premier wine and food experience and party in Houston.  The Grand Tasting Experience combines amazing wines from around the world, delicious food from Houston’s finest restaurants, live music, and a festive atmosphere for enjoying it all.

A portion of the proceeds from the event always benefit a local non-profit organization.

We hope you will join us during this exciting event!
