Texas Wine Tours
I have never been a wine connoisseur and until now, have never been on a wine tour. My friend who loves her wine (not, loves to whine =)) decided it would be a novel idea to go on a wine tour in Texas. Of course being the resourceful cat that she is, she managed to find a tour company that offers great service. Texas Wine Tours mainly tours in the Fredericksburg area and expressed that we would need at least 8 people committed to the tour in order for them to ship out to San Antonio to pick us up. Recollecting a few Economics lessons I learned eons ago, I understood their reasoning. My recruiting skills once again failed me however, my friend Ed who lives in San Antonio agreed to join us on the tour and offered to drive us up to Fredericksburg. Another plan come together. We toured a couple of locations, including Rancho Ponte Vineyards, Grape Creek Vineyards, Pedernales Cellars, Becker Vineyards, and more. I have to say that I am hooked. We learned a lot of interesting things about vineyards in Texas and California, the people who are responsible for these great vineyards, stressing grapes, soil, pairing wine and foods, met interesting people who were also on the tour, and all in all, had a great time.
