Join Us for #TXwine Twitter Tuesday – Texas’s Mother’s Day Wines: May 5th 7-8p Central Time
It’s the time of year when we all make that special effort to acknowledge our mothers. This year, show your mother some love by ordering online or picking up some wines curbside from your favorite winery… there’s still time.
Join us on May 5th 7-8p CT for another installment of #TXwine Twitter Tuesday. It’s the Twitter tasting that 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 the Texas wines your Mother might like: crisp whites, wines with sparkle, pink Rosés, wines with a hint (or more) of sweetness, or perhaps a light-bodied red. Maybe your mother even likes firm full-bodied reds – nothing wrong with that. Best of all you might pick a wine that your Mother and you can share and both enjoy. You select your wine(s) made from Texas grapes, then join us for #TXwine Twitter Tuesday, and share what’s in your glass.
