The Overton and McPherson Cellars combine and Go Texan

By Christie Post - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The annual Go Texan Restaurant Round Up continues. 2322 at The Overton and McPherson Cellars combined to bring customers their local products while supporting local farmers and ranchers.

Customers get a chance to taste the best food and wine from right here in Texas. Over 400 restaurants are participating this week coming together to bring Texas products to the dinner table.

2322 at the Overton buys local from Red Raiders meats down the street from the hotel. They said it helps to cut down on transportation costs, while cutting costs for customers to eat their personal sliced meat.

"Keeping everything local in the community is really important to us. The community makes a lot of money, versus ending it all over the country, we might as well keep it here and make everybody else profitable," said Overton Food and Beverage Director, Kurt Metcalf.

McPherson cellars also cuts their cost by producing and bottling their wine right in downtown Lubbock. The owner said they get their grapes right down the street.

"Being that my winery is on 16th street, my dad's vineyard is on 88th street it's not very far away. So we get it in there, low transportation costs," said McPherson Cellars Owner, Kim McPherson.

The winery bottles about 9,000 cases a year, providing wine all over Lubbock and throughout Texas.

"We're producing the varietals we think will put Texas on the map that love the warmer climate. sangiovese, tempranillo, venya," said McPherson.

To kick of the week, 2322 at the Overton will offer a deal worth satisfying your taste buds. They have a 20 oz. rib-eye paired with asparagus, potatoes and McPherson wine for $25.95.

Every day this week we will be featuring a different restaurant participating this week on KCBD NewsChannel 11's Daybreak Today.
