Food & Vine Time Productions, producer of Wine & Food Week, celebrates 20 years in 2022 and is proud to have raised over $2 million dollars through various channels since its inception in 2002 for local charities and deserving non-profits.

The first large-scale event in the Metro founded by Food & Vine Time Productions, Wine & Food Week, was the first multi-day, multi-faceted, comprehensive destination culinary and wine event and the first nationally to promote locally sourced and sustainable products.  Founder Constance McDerby with life and business partner, Clifton McDerby have been promoting and furthering the diverse culinary scene to avid followers since 2002.  Diffusing the mystique of wines, FVTP events make wines approachable by educating the novice to the aficionado.  Food & Vine Time Productions created another first when it launched the state’s first multi-day craft beer destination and educational event featuring over 300 craft beer selections.  Brewmasters Craft Beer Festival celebrated a decade of craft beer experiences, being named  #3 beer event in America by USA Today and #1 in Houston by Houstonia Magazine.  Food & Vine Time Productions’ events include Houston Chronicle Culinary Stars, Katy Sip N Stroll, Wine Fair Cy-Fair, Zest in the West, Haute Wheels Food Truck Fest, and a myriad of public lifestyle events and private events for various clients.
