Root for This Texas Winemaker on ABC’s The Taste


Cheers for Texas winemaker Don Pullum – he’s a chef contestant on ABC’s The Taste!

The season premiere kicked off on Thursday, Jan. 2 and runs each Thursday night at 7 p.m. CT until Feb. 20 when the winner will be announced.

During each show, mentor chefs Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre and Marcus Samuelsson prepare their teams (of 4) for challenges in creating dishes that will ultimately be judged by the superstar chefs in a blind taste test.

Don Pullum is the winemaker for Sandstone Cellars and Pontotoc Vineyard in Mason County, and is competing to be the last chef standing to take home The Taste trophy and $100,000! Go Don!!
