Branwar Wines recently celebrated their first anniversary of providing premier wines to the Texas market. Branwar Wine Distributing Co. was established by founder Wayne Luckett and son, Warren.
Wayne developed an affinity for South African wines during his five year residency in Johannesburg, South Africa. After returning home, he wanted to continue his enjoyment of select wines and realized there was a void in the Texas wine industry, so he set out to offer the Western Cape’s best kept secrets. Their wines are now available in many upscale restaurants and wine bars in Houston.
Enjoying a few sips at the party were Patricia Luckett, Dr. Bernard Harris, Arlecia Williams, Wendell Prothow, Gwen Reden, Jessica Varner, Magen Singleton, Sandy and Dr. James Anderson, Lisa Chargois, Dan Hunter and Margaret Scranton.
