Taste Texas Guest Blogger Profile: Joe Power & Amy Corron Power of Another Wine Blog

Date: Wed, May 12, 2010 Wine Tasting

One of the great things about working on organizing the Taste Texas Twitter tasting has been getting to know some of my fellow bloggers a little better. One of the blogger tandems that I was really looking forward to getting to know a little better are the power-couple behind Another Wine Blog, Joe Power and Amy Corron Power. Joe and Amy are both outstanding writers and are active on Twitter (@HoustonWino and @WineWonkette). I always know that I can count on them for insightful and passionate wine writing, and some great photography by Amy. Joe and Amy were kind enough...

Taste Texas Guest Blogger Profile: Russ Kane of Vintage Texas

Date: Tue, May 11, 2010 Wine Tasting

If you were to ask me for the one person who I most associate with Texas wine, the first name that would come to mind is Russ Kane. Based on his extensive knowledge and experience with Texas wine, one could hardly argue against Russ Kane for the title of Texas Wine Czar. In addition to writing the VintageTexas blog, he has organized numerous wine events around the state, been a judge at tastings, and he started the Houston chapter of the Wine Society of Texas. I am very proud to have Russ Kane participating in Taste Texas, and hope that...

Taste Texas Guest Blogger Profile: Melanie Ofenloch of Dallas Wine Chick

Date: Mon, May 10, 2010 Wine Tasting

We are down to the final countdown to the Mandola Estate Winery Taste Texas tasting, and I've been working my way through profiles of the bloggers who will be participating in the event with me. Today I'm talking with a fellow Texas resident, Melanie Ofenloch from www.dallaswinechick.com. I have been following Melanie's blog since day one, and have really enjoyed getting to know her on Twitter (@melanie0). Melanie really knows her wine, and has an obvious passion for it. Her writing is elegant and informative, and really makes you feel like you are a part of the events that she...

Taste Texas Guest Blogger Profile: Josh Wade of Drink Nectar

Date: Sat, May 8, 2010 Wine Tasting

If the wine blogging world were a high school, I would expect to see Josh Wade's picture in the Most Likely to Succeed category of the yearbook. Josh and I started blogging around the same time, and it has been a lot of fun to see what he has done in such a short period of time. He has quickly accumulated a substantial following on his blog, has become a fixture in the Washington wine scene, and is nothing short of a Twitter rockstar. Josh will be one of the national guest bloggers that will be participating in the Taste...

May 7 - The Good the Bad and the Ugly

Date: Fri, May 7, 2010 Wine Tasting

So, after taking a week of hiatus from this series, I'm all Gene Autry, back in the saddle again. Here goes... The GoodJoe Herrig from Suburban Wino had two great posts this week that featured some great movie and wine pairings. I think a lot of us wine bloggers have thought about what wines we would pair with our favorite television shows, songs, movies, and pretty much every thing else because..., well, because we are weird. This post is pretty much the perfect intersection of two of my obsessions. The Bad There was a totally crazy story this week about...

Taste Texas Guest Blogger Profile: Joe Herrig of Suburban Wino

Date: Thu, May 6, 2010 Wine Tasting

We are just a week away from the first Taste Texas Twitter event with Mandola Estate Winery, and I thought that it would be a good idea to profile a few of the bloggers who will be participating in the event with me. Joe Herrig is the one and only wily unbranded calf of wine blogging, launching his assault on eonological boredom from his roost at www.suburbanwino.com. Joe's writing is some of the most entertaining that you will find on any wine blog, mixing top notch wine knowledge with a dash of humor and pop-culture savvy. I asked Joe a...

Hip Hop, Wine, and the Wild Wild West

Date: Wed, May 5, 2010 Wine Tasting

I've mentioned before, and it comes as no surprise to anyone, that the Texas wine biz is just a little bit different from what you would see in a lot of other places. Last night I got another taste of one of those differences. La Diosa Wine Cellars is the local haunt for winos here in my hometown of Lubbock, Texas. In addition to featuring some Texas wines, La Diosa is also one of Lubbock's great music venues. The music selection that you will find here from night to night is, well, eclectic. Last night I went to see a...

Hitting the Texas Wine Trail

Date: Mon, May 3, 2010 Wine Tasting

The Texas Department of Agriculture has recently announced a series of videos featuring eight different wine trails around the state of Texas. The first video was released last week, with a new video debuting every Tuesday. The first trail to be featured is the Bluebonnet Wine Trail, which is in South-East Texas. The trail runs from Brennan to Montgomery. There are seven wineries on the Bluebonnet trail, including Messina Hof, one of the biggest wineries in the state. The owner and winemaker at Messina Hof, Paul Bonarrigo, is featured quite a bit on this video. Paul is one of the...

What the Hell Does "For Sale in Texas Only" Mean Anyway?

Date: Thu, Apr 29, 2010 Wine Tasting

Okay, you all know that I like to bring it for Texas wine. I love my Texas wine, and I love getting to know all of the great people at Texas wineries. One thing I don't love is confusing labeling on wines produced in the state of Texas. I don't love the fact that it is all too common for a friend to tell me that they bought a "Texas" wine over the weekend, then when they name the wine I am forced to tell them that the wine wasn't actually made from Texas fruit. In order for a winery...

Better Than Kissing Your Sister - 2008 Sister Creek Muscat Canelli

Date: Tue, Apr 27, 2010 Wine Tasting

There are a lot of things about Texas that make it different from the other wine producing regions of the United States. There are the obvious differences, such as our climate, and then there are the things that you have to look a little harder to find, like a winery that resides within an old cotton gin. Sister Creek has been making wine in Texas for 22 years in the bustling metropolis of Sisterdale (population 25), which is located in the Texas Hill Country. Most of the wines that Sister Creek produces are the old French standards, but they also...
