December 17: Gentle Lamb Experience

6:00 pm

This is our wonderful Motown group. Louis Lamb and the band bring back to life Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Four Seasons and all the great Doo Wop music of the 60’s. What is so special about this group to us is that most of them have been around and playing this music since its beginning. They will certainly take you back to garage dances and belly rubbing with your first love!

Sunday, November 19: Holiday Chocolate Sunday

We often think of wine and chocolate going together and the holidays are certainly a great time to enjoy this wonderful treat with family and friends. Chocolate and wine are both decadent, luxurious and packed with complex flavors. Both are also associated with romance and indulgent moments, and holidays are a great time to think romance and celebration.

If you are looking for a unique gift for that special person or couple, perhaps this tasting would be a great present to consider. And if you are looking for an opportunity to do something different with that special friend or family member, what better gift than sharing an afternoon pairing wine and chocolates.

Wine maker and self-proclaimed chocolatier, Jerry Bernhardt, will be conducting this tasting and says he will be featuring the winery’s finest classic chocolate truffles paired with the Bernhardt’s award-winning wines. And if that wasn’t enough, he promises he will be sharing a bit of “whimsy”, pairing wine with typical holiday chocolate favorites like silver bells and peppermint bark. Jerry also says he will be demonstrating how to make some of his favorite holiday chocolate candy, but he is not telling any of us what he is planning. He says that you will leave this pairing with great ideas for sharing romance, indulgence and fun with your family and friends.


The talented Houston-based artist, Alexis Andrei, will be showcasing her hand painted glasswares and hand painted cards! These playful and unique art pieces make great gifts for the holidays!

Artist Statement:
Art is my passion. It is a practice that has given me a meaningful way to explore the world around me. I am inspired by my surroundings, from the mundane to the amazing. Through color, texture, movement, and balance, each of my paintings offers its own personality and expression. These unique pieces offer viewers a stimulating platform for imagination, play and creativity.

$45 Per Person | $40.50 Soleil Wine Club members | Includes a tasting of six award-winning wines paired with enough chocolate to make you holler “uncle”! Call early to reserve your space as this popular holiday pairing fills up early. Happy Holidays!

Seating is limited. Seating times:
SOLD OUT | 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Just a few seats left! | 4:00pm – 5:30pm

Call 936-894-9829 for reservations.
