4.0 Cellars Wine Club Release – Apr-2019

It is time for another Wine Club Allocation release of delicious 4.0 Cellars wines. Texas springtime weather, as expected, has been weird! We in the Hill Country barely dodged a very damaging cold snap recently that would have damaged a lot of the peach and grape production for 2019. However, reports from growers indicate that damage was minimal. Now we just have to worry about any other bad weather, freezes or hail, over the next month or two.  Continue »

Texas in general, especially the High Plains, is noted for turbulent and unpredictable weather that often brings frigid temperatures soon after bud break when grapevines are most susceptible to frost damage. Just in the past week or so we have experienced overnight temperatures in the low twenty-degree range here in the Texas Hill Country. This has raised serious concerns for not only grapevines but peach trees, too. Posts on Facebook and Instagram have highlighted these concerns, and just in the past few days limited information has become available about the damage that was or was not observed. More on this part later.  Continue »

4.0 Events 101

Anyone who’s been in Fredericksburg for, say, a week knows that this town is “eventful.” There’s always something going on. Take October, for example. The first weekend is Oktoberfest, and then the other weekends offer up Mesquite Fest, Best Fest, and Food and Wine Fest. And if there happens to be a fifth weekend in October, I’m sure that some fest is offered then, too.  Continue »
