Think Pink at the Texas Wine Revolution

The wildflowers aren’t the only thing blooming this time of year in Texas. While I’m a proponent of drinking rosé all year, sales of the pretty pink bottles soar in spring and summer. To kick off the season, Texas Wine Revolution will be held at the Horseshoe Bay Resort on Sunday, April 22nd from 1-5pm.

It is your opportunity to sample over 40 wines from more than 25 wineries around the state, with the focus being on 100% Texas rosé. Food Vendors, educational seminars, music and an auction will round out the day.

The event, which was started by William Chris Vineyards, will feature both their signature bottle and samples of canned wine Sway Rosé, a side project of Chris Brundrett and Lost Draw Cellars’ Andrew Sides. Look for Dandy Rosé by Rae Wilson, bottles from Lewis, Becker Vineyards, Lost Draw Cellars, Messina Hof, Fall Creek, McPherson, Spicewood, Perissos and more. To purchase tickets and for a complete listing of wineries, food vendors, and additional details, visit their site Texas Wine Revolution. Hope to see you there!

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.
