Welcome Wino! Don't be shy, please tell us a bit about yourself, and your interest in/love of wine, including your favorites.

I like elegant subtle wines. My favorite Médoc cru bourgeois is Chateau La Tour de By. I really like blind tastings, which is why I'm more of a "wine bat" than a "wino", but why no? :-)

Which wineries In the Texas Hill Country have you visited?

None. I've tasted the Bell Mountain Vineyard's red wine which was very good.

What is your favorite Austin wine bar?

I haven't been to any, believe it or not. Cipollina West Austin Bistro on West Lynn is probably my favorite kind of place to have a glass of wine and, incidentally, their apéritifs and sparkling wines by the glass are half price during happy hours.


Having developed a palate attuned to French-style wines attending blind wine tasting sessions in Paris, France, I would like to continue exploring interesting wines from other parts of the world (e.g. Chile, Italy, upstate New York, Oregon).
