William Chris Vineyards’ Annual New Year’s Day Black Eyed Pea Cook-Off

January 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

William Chris Vineyards will be hosting their Annual New Year’s Day Party featuring a distinctly southern family-friendly Black-Eyed Pea Cook-Off at the vineyard in Hye, Texas on Saturday, January 1st from 1 to 4 p.m.

The ticket price for general admission is $50 and will include a new year’s toast for adults, plenty of black-eyed peas, an exclusive event t-shirt, tickets for tasting William Chris wines, one vote to cast for your favorite dish, a meal provided by our culinary team, and live music.

Think you have what it takes to compete for the title of William Chris’ Black-Eyed Pea Champion?? The cook-off is $75 per entry for a team of two – entrants must prepare a dish at home using Black-Eyed Peas with enough to provide 450 samples to attendees; the dish must be ready by set-up time at 10:00 a.m. on January 1st. Prizes for the top three teams include: 1st place will receive $500 + 2 cases of WCV wine; 2nd place will receive a case of WCV wine, and 3rd place will receive 6 bottles of WCV wine. There will also be a prize for the most festive table!
