On November 17, 2021, Humanities Texas and Foodways Texas hosted "A Conversation with Jessica Dupuy." A wine, spirits, food, and travel writer, Dupuy has covered culinary trends for various publications throughout her career. Her latest book, The Wines of Southwest U.S.A., a part of the Classic Wine Library, covers the emerging American wine regions in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. This virtual program introduced the history of the Texas wine industry from the High Plains to the Hill Country and explored how the state has become a major player in North American winemaking. The conversation was followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
