Have a Wine and World Series Two-Sip Tasting Party: TXwine vs. CAwine
With the World Series in full swing and the Texas Rangers hoping to come from behind against the San Francisco Giants, you have an opportunity to step up to the plate. We invite fans at home to a friendly competition between Texas and California wines.
In the spirit of the seven-game series, the seven wine pairings below, specially selected by Whole Foods Market, make for an easy and fun World Series watch-and-taste party. Arrange a blind wine tasting and decide for yourself which wines will go the extra inning.
Enjoy the competition and tell us about your Texas Two-Sip experiences through the Texas Department of Agriculture’s GO TEXAN page on Facebook and by tweeting using the Twitter hashtag #GOTEXAN.
