Join Us for #TXwine Twitter Tuesday for Texas’s Italian Reds and Whites
Friends, Texans, and Countrymen it’s time to get in touch with your inner “Roman”. Join us on April 28th 7-8p CT for another installment of #TXwine Twitter Tuesday. It’s the Twitter tasting and takes you across the expanse of Texas to meet-up with fellow Texans, winemakers and grape growers to taste some of the best wines being made in this state.
For this week’s tasting, we will focus on Texas wines made from Italian varieties – Crisp whites like Vermentino, Pinot Grigio, and Trebbiano; reds like Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Aglianico, and Nero D’Avola; and blends in their many forms. You select what wines you like to drink as long as it is made from Texas grapes and share what’s in your glass. We want to rally our Texas wineries and support local restaurants through these troubling times.
Our line up of #TXwine Twitter Tuesday events after April 28th includes:
May 5th – What are your Mother’s Day Texas wine favorites, May 12th – SparkingWine (traditional, PetNat, & more), May 19th – Blanc Du Bois, Lenoir & great grilling wines of Texas, and May 26th – Texas Cabernet & Chardonnay.
