Take part in Texas Fine Wine’s Talk & Taste event celebrating 4 local wineries



Calling All Wine Lovers: Attend a Free Texas Fine Wine Educational Session at Thursday October 7 via Zoom!

The idea is to bring people together… while being safe. Texas Fine Wine hosts these events on the second Thursday of each month from 6 to 7 p.m., and you are welcome to jump to their published link. Texas Fine Wine is a group of 4 local wineries. The October theme pays homage to Texas Wine Month.

Here’s what each cellar tastes like:

  • Bending Branch Winery 2018 Tempranillo, Newsom Vineyards – notes of cranberry, mushroom and cinnamon
  • Duchman Family Winery 2016 Aglianico Oswald Vineyard – notes of black cherry, plum, cedar and baking spices
  • PCaves edernales 2016 Family Reserve – notes of dried strawberries, cherries, raspberries, black pepper and cocoa
  • Spicewood Vineyards 2017 Good guy – blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with notes of bing cherries, ripe strawberries, sandalwood and leather

Big news here: For their holiday wine tasting on November 11, they are offering a “Texas Fine Wine Package” that includes one wine from each winery. More details to come!
