How Our 4.0 Family Celebrates the Holidays

What do you get when you combine oodles of shrimp, Martin in pajama pants, paper plate artwork, and LOTS of wine? Our 4.0 staff annual Christmas party, of course. This year’s shindig was held at Nury’s in Fredericksburg and featured all sorts of games, prizes, and yummy grub.  Continue »

Many of you probably already know that we have a new General Manager at 4.0. But though “the new guy” has already been here a month, he’s still a bit of a mystery. So, now it’s time to get to know him.  Continue »

The Holidays Are Coming!

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’re starting to see inklings of the will-be-here-sooner-than-you-think holidays. City workers in Fredericksburg have been busy for the past couple of weeks decorating Main Street and Marktplatz, and shops are changing their window displays to include lots of red and green. Neighbors around the corner from us have already decorated their house with colored lights outlining their walls and roof. And whether you’re ready or not, holiday music will be pouring out of speakers everywhere.  Continue »

Best in Show…4.0 Style

What do a piñata, four pugs, and the Big Bad Wolf have in common? Well, they all attended our annual Howl-o-Ween and Wine celebration and dog costume contest on Sunday, and if you weren’t here for the fun, you missed a wide variety of dogs in some very creative costumes.  Continue »

T-Shirts, Tutus, and Tiaras: Anything Goes at the Cellars

I spent this past weekend with a friend in New Orleans. At one point, we found ourselves gawking at a table full of expensive tiaras, surrounded by women trying them on. As we walked out of the store, my friend wondered who in the world needs a tiara…besides, of course, a princess. I had to laugh because I’ve actually seen a surprising number of tiaras in my time at 4.0. But I’ve seen much more than that in our tasting rooms, too.  Continue »

Come Celebrate Texas Wine Month at the Cellars

October has always been my favorite month. When I was young, I loved it for my birthday and Halloween. As I got older and moved away from Texas for a while, I loved it for the arrival of fall leaves, watching UT football from afar, and celebrating many friends’ birthdays and my wedding anniversary. Now that I’m back home in Texas and living in Fredericksburg, I can add Oktoberfest to the long list of things worth celebrating in October.  Continue »

The Texas Cheese and Wine Experience (or Fun in the Board Room!)

I genuinely enjoy many things about my job at 4.0: getting to know new customers, chatting with club members, working alongside my colleagues (many of whom I call “friend”), serving at special events, and learning about and tasting a wide assortment of Texas wines. But one of my favorite “tasks” at 4.0 is leading cheese and wine pairings. While Carl leads most of these pairings on Saturdays, I (and the other Leads) get to step into that role on weekdays and when Carl is away. And let me tell you, there’s rarely a dull moment during a pairing.  Continue »

When Leaders and Wine Collide

For those of you involved in some way with the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce, the Leadership Gillespie County (LGC) program will be familiar. This annual, community-based program gives citizens of Fredericksburg and Gillespie County a chance to network and learn about, among other things, local industries, schools, government, and non-profits. Since its inception, LGC has graduated over 500 people. At its root, it’s a breeding ground for our future leaders.  Continue »
