Rhône White Grapes in Texas 2019

As I am organizing several wine tastings for Industry meetings that will include several Rhône white grape varieties, it seems appropriate to focus on these grapes that are doing extremely well in the Lone Star State.

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.
