October is Texas Wine Month

Kicking off this beautiful October 1st, which also happens to be Texas Wine Month, by highlighting a winery and vineyard right in our backyard. @wild_stallion_vineyards
🍇 
Did you know Texas has a vineyard in Spring, that produces Blanc Dubois grapes? With just over 3 acres, Wild Stallion Vineyards produced 7,000 bottles this past harvest! Wild Stallion Vineyards produces 13 other wines, in which the grapes are 100% sourced from other Texas Vineyards.
🍇 
After traveling around the world, thoughts of owning a vineyard and making wine became a dream! Soon that dream became reality. Larry and Karen Cress gave life to Wild Stallion in 2009 in Spring, TX!
🍇
I learned about Wild Stallion Vineyards while searching for opportunities to work a vineyard. I helped prune back in 2018 for 2 hours, so it’s safe to say that I helped produce a 🍇or two! 😆

If you’re celebrating Texas Wine Month, which I hope everyone is, please visit Wild Stallion Vineyards. My fav: Bj’s Reserve, slightly dry with tropical and mild citrus notes! Delish 🍷

Memorial Weekend Rose’ Sips

Memorial Day is the perfect holiday to celebrate all of the men and women who served our county. We salute you!

Rose’ is the perfect wine to kick off the festivities for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend! Do you know Rose’? Rose’ it’s definitely a celebration wine. It’s fun, colorful and it makes you wanna Rose’ All Day!

Rose’ wines are made by juicing red grapes and then allowing the juice to soak with the skin for a short amount of time. When the juice starts to develop the beautiful pink color, the skins are removed and the juice is allowed to ferment and that’s when Rose’ is created!

Now that you’ve had Rose’ 101, let’s introduce you to some nice Rose’ wines.
