Switching gears away from brews (not entirely) & back to wines. Excited to meet a knowledgeable group to help introduce me to the many wines I've missed out on. I'm a huge sucker for old vine Zins & Pinot Noirs & more recently have really been enjoying Petite Syrahs & Cab Francs. White wine is rarely my first choice, however given the environment & setting I won't say no to a white wine.
Driftwood is my favorite to visit...spent a lot of Sunday afternoons there in the past. I recently took part in Solaro's Barbera harvest and I've visited the majority of vineyards between Austin & Fredericksburg, Westcave Cellars and William Chris are quickly becoming places I have to stop.
My favorite wine bars in Austin are Wink, House Wine, Vino Vino, and more recently began enjoying the Red Room Lounge.
Drinking wine & beer is purely for enjoyment. I'm fascinated by the craft of brewing & wine making. Wine provides a bit of yin to my yang!
