Looking forward to this – a lot of these wines aren’t available in stores, so this is a good chance to try some new names and varietals! Plus, all proceeds go to scholarships for TX kids.
Round em up and move en out! I’m ready for the Rodeo Austin wine tasting.
This is going to be awesome! I’m looking forward to trying a lot of different wines and expanding knowledge.
