    The Kingwood Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome a new business, Wine & Design, to the thriving Kingwood community. Wine & Design is a “paint and sip” business offering a variety of event packages, class options, and craft selections. At Wine & Design, participants are walked through the steps to create beautiful, unique artwork by a trained artist. No prior art experience is needed - Anyone who participates is guaranteed to go home with a unique, personalized art piece to show off to friends and family.

    Chantel Brown, Kingwood native and owner/operator of the Kingwood Wine & Design franchise location, was happy to give her answers our questions about her new business venture.


    Why did you choose Kingwood as the location for your new business?

    Chantel: I chose Kingwood because this community means so much to my family. I’ve lived in the area my whole life, so it only made sense for it to be the home of my first business.

    What is Wine & Design, and what makes it different from other businesses in your market?

    Chantel: Wine & Design is a paint and sip art studio that goes far beyond the borders of what you’ve seen before. We will host nightly instructor led classes for projects ranging from canvas paintings to wood pallet signs to terrariums, wreaths, and more. We will also host in-studio private events, team building classes, and fundraising events. Unlike other similar studios, we sell the wine in house! No need to worry about toting your own.

    Despite the name, Wine and Design isn’t just for adults. We also have a division called Art Buzz Kids that provides classes featuring creative projects for kids of all ages. Art Buzz Kids will offer birthday parties, holiday and summer camps, and remote location classes for daycares/schools.

    Where and when will you be opening your doors to the Kingwood community?

    Chantel: We anticipate we will open our doors in October! We are located in Kings Harbor just across the parking lot from Sharky’s.


    The Kingwood Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome Wine & Design to our diverse network of friends and colleagues. For more information about Wine & Design, visit their website or check out their Facebook page

    Ted Poe is a proud product of the city of Houston, having been educated in Houston and served as a felony prosecutor, judge, and, most recently, Congressman, for Harris County. Following a career in the Air Force, Poe spent a considerable portion of his life dedicated to the public service of Harris County and the city of Houston.

    Known for his “no-nonsense” leadership style, Ted Poe has served the Second Congressional District of Texas since 2004. For nearly 15 years, Congressman Poe has represented the Kingwood community, standing for traditional, conservative values and advocating for minimizing the size and scope of the federal government while expanding personal freedom.

    Poe announced his retirement via Twitter in November of 2017, saying, “I am looking forward to spending more time in Texas, especially with my 12 grandkids who have all been born since I was first elected to Congress. I am proud of the work that my office has accomplished: giving crime victims a voice, helping to combat human trafficking, and fighting for our constitutional rights and individual liberty.”

    Poe is set to make the final speech of his congressional career at the Kingwood Area Republican Women luncheon, which will take place on August 22nd at Walden Country Club.

    Poe’s replacement remains to be seen as election day draws closer. Republican Dan Crenshaw and Democrat Todd Litton will face off for Poe’s seat. The new Congressional term begins January 3rd, 2019.

    It's hard to believe we're already halfway through the summer. But don't worry - The Kingwood Chamber of Commerce has got you covered. Fill your last few weeks of summer vacation with family, friends, and fun, all while staying local in the beautiful, vibrant community of Kingwood, TX.

    • Have a Tex-Mex night with the family.

    Delicious Tex-Mex is a staple in the lives of Kingwood residents. Before school starts in August, get the whole family together for a night of chips, salsa, chimichangas, and sopapillas! An evening spent with family and friends is already a treat – the Tex-Mex is just the cherry on top. Need some suggestions on great Tex-Mex in Kingwood? The Chamber has you covered! Click here to check out our comprehensive guide to Kingwood’s Tex-Mex restaurants.

    • See a Showbiz movie with your gang.

    Showbiz is a Kingwood icon – if you haven’t run into what seems like every single person you know while walking into the theater, you haven’t truly experienced Showbiz Kingwood. So, before the school year starts and everyone gets busy, meet your friends for one of the box-office hits of the summer. Haven’t seen The Incredibles 2 yet? Well, join the rest of America and get on it! Or, wait until closer to the end of summer and celebrate a new school year by seeing the premiere of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

    • Bring your fur baby to East End.

    East End – Kingwood’s forested, suburban escape. Take advantage of your last few moments of vacation and spend some time in nature. We recommend going between the hours of 6am and 9am or 6pm and 9pm to have the best chance at taking your walk in below-95-degree weather. You’ll probably see most of your neighbors and their pets out on the green belts, too – that’s life in the Livable Forest!

    • Sleep in and have Kolaches.

    Ah, Kolaches - a Texas tradition. Snooze that alarm clock and soak in your last few days of summer relaxation. Then, show some Kingwood love to WestCo Donuts, or Citizen Donuts, or the Kolache House, or Shipley’s, or ANY Kolache destination near you. Treat yourself to that extra-large Boudin kolache – you deserve it!

    • Get your tan on at the community pool.

    Community pools are some of the best amenities that come with living in Kingwood. Some residents forget they exist or misplace the pool card a month after moving in - So track down that pool card and head to your community pool for one last day of tanning, family water games, and neighborly celebrations.
