New Year, New Wine Club Sundays!

As I’ve written about previously in these “Scoops,” 2020 asked us all to be flexible, think creatively, and accept change. Some of these lessons were definitely harder to learn than others, but I’d like to think that we’re all better for having learned them (or for at least trying to learn them).

During your next visit to Texas Wine Collective, you are invited to wander out to the “Pet Vineyard” to take a look at the mix of mostly Black Spanish vines, interspersed with some recent additions of Tannat (added in 2019) and Tempranillo (added in 2020).  Continue »
