Don't Mess with Texas Wine

Texas got wine?

I had no idea. What a pleasant surprise as I planned my trip to San Antonio. I originally thought I would take 2 days to meander through the old town, past the Alamo, through the River Walk, but then I somehow stumbled upon Texas wine country while browsing online (oh, the treasures I find!). I quickly cut my San Antonio self-tour to one evening, and then I spent the next day and a half in Fredericksburg, 1.25 hours from San Antonio. Unintentionally, I found myself in the real Texas, the flat countryside, with the smokin' BBQ and good ol' Texan hospitality (especially in the tasting rooms). Cabernet Sauvignon and juicy, tender beef ribs? Yee-haw!

Barrel room with Texan love

Texas mostly grows Bordeaux varietals like Cabs, Merlots, Cab Francs, but we found a lovely locally-grown Pinot Noir that we just adored. Winery: Sister Creek Winery

Only in Texas...

Good excuse...
Drinking with the locals. Yes, that's a real belt.

Thank you Texas! I look forward to spreading the news about your awesome wines!
