I am glad to know about 2009 5th Annual Texas FallFest and Wine Auction. Being a wine lover, I would love to attend it. Your blog looks wonderful. keep posting..!
Many thanks for your kind comments. Texas is now coming into its own as a major wine producing region.
These are exciting times, watching and tasting vintage after vintage. Texas wine is good, but still there are still many opportunities for discovery and lots to learn.
There is a large “big bottle” Texas winery, many large premium wineries, a growing number of quality boutique wineries and a whole raft of ma and pa operations, and even Texas Garagistas.
