Spring Fling Taste and Play-Next week

If you were following in January, you may already be familiar with the idea behind “Taste and Play.”  Basically, it is an excuse for my Austin SAHM friends and I to get together and try a new wine.  We taste, talk, and take notes on the wines.  Those that choose to, comment on the wines on the blog.  We invite you to join us wherever you are in a “virtual tasting.”  Next week, we will have the Spring Fling Tasting. I have selected the following wines.

2010 McPherson Viognier, TX  ($12-14)

2010 Acquagiusta Rosato, Italy ($15)

2011 Castillo Perelada Garnatxa Blanca, Spain ($12)

If you are not able to find them in a store near you, choose something similar. You can share your finds with us as well. Our tasting party will be Wednesday, but get your friends together whenever you have a chance and let us know what you thought.  Reviews will be posted shortly after our tasting.

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
