@dobianchi and @italianwineguy share blogging wisdom

When TexSom was started 7 years ago by James Tidwell MS and Drew Hendricks MS, they would not have thought that the 2011 conference would start with an added “sold-out” day on Social Media and Technology.  They would not have imagined that two dedicated wine professionals like Alfonso Cevola and Jeremy Parzen would create a wine blog for the TexSom Media Program and use it to teach others how and why to blog.   Fortunately, the co-founders of TexSom are at the top of their game and brought us these heavy hitters to teach us about the blog world today.  Thanks Jeremy and Alfonso!


We are Keeper and can’t wait for TexSom!

We are Keeper Collection, host of food and wine events like Chefs Under Fire, Somms Under Fire, and Wine Ride.  We also organize culinary trips overseas with Chefs and Wine Professionals and are creators of the increasingly popular #SommChat, wine chat on Twitter, every Wednesday from 11am -12 N CST.  Based in Austin, TX, Keeper brings together the food and wine communities around the globe.

TEXSOM is here!  And we couldn’t be more excited to join in on all the wine extravaganzas.  Keeper is a huge supporter and lover of the event and will be there catching all the action live and keeping those who can’t be there updated via Facebook and Twitter @keepercoll.

Keeper knows how much effort goes into planning events like TEXSOM as we will be kicking off our 3rd annual statewide cooking competition, Chefs Under Fire, next Sunday, August 21, in Dallas at the Milestone Culinary Arts Center.

Looking forward to TexSom’s “Everything wine, All the Time”!
