Westin La Canterra Resort Sommelier Steven Krueger and I will be tasting a flight of Texas wines and comment on our tasting experiences on Twitter and Facebook. We will discuss the wines and their attributes, Texas wineries, trends in Texas wines, and Texas’s long wine history that dates back to the Spanish missionary period in the 1600’s.
