Wining Down for the Day with a Texas Wine
The weather is cooling down and providing great opportunities to visit with your friends either on the street or on the back patio. Place your folding chair onto the drive and sit to watch others walk by and converse while sipping on your favorite Texas wines. Start a tradition of sitting, sipping, and slurping while visiting on the front drive. It is amazing the people you meet on the front drive sipping on your favorite Texas wines. The weather is cool so bring out your favorite Texas red wines for the conversation. When it gets dark around 5:30, head to the back veranda to continue conversations with friends and your BEST friend. Don’t forget your IPAD to add music to the conversations. I like Andrea Bocelli with his operatic melodies fused with passion to add to the wine-sharing event. As I have said many times, wine is always better when shared with friends. Even better, add finger foods like Brie or Camembert creamy cheeses with your Reds or Edam cheese with your white Texas wines. Just set the mood and let those wonderful Texas wines complete and compliment the event.

Texas Restaurants Serving Texas Wines
A Houston favorite for forty-five years is the Rainbow Lodge located on Ella Blvd. in Houston. This quaint rustic log cabin atmosphere pairs wonderfully with their game foods like venison, elk, antelope, duck, and the traditional steaks and rack of lamb. They have several Texas wines by the glass like Duchman Vermentino or Lost Draw Tempranillo. If you want Texas wines by the bottle, try McPherson Los Copains, Westcave Cellars Vigneron, and other Texas wines. The outstanding rustic atmosphere paired with Texas wines will make this a great occasion with their world-class food. Remember, Texas foods taste BEST with Texas wines!
