TXwine Twitter Tues. – Texas’s Grilling Wines, Also Blanc Du Bois & Black Spanish Wines: May 19th 7-8p CT – Taste-Tweet-Repeat-Retweet!
Join us on May 19th 7-8p CT for another installment of #TXwine Twitter Tuesday. It’s coming up to Memorial Day and the unofficial start of the Grilling Season in Texas. This week we are featuring your favorite grilling wines along with wines made from two other important and historical grape varieties: Blanc Du Bois & Black Spanish (Lenoir).
For this week’s tasting, please focus on Texas’s Grilling Wines: Rosés and Sparkling wines (for sure) along with Spanish, Italian and other Mediterranean whites and reds that your experience tells you go well with BBQ beef brisket, pork spare ribs and pulled pork, lamb chops, sausages, and even grilled vegetables. You make your selection(s) and show us what’s in your glass. Remember to Taste-Tweet-Repeat-Retweet!
Additionally, our wine focus on May 19th will extend into the many fine wines made from Blanc Du Bois (Texas’s most-grown white grape variety) and Black Spanish from wineries around the state.
