Every first Tuesday of the month is TXWine Twitter Tuesday from 7pm-8pm CST. Texas wine drinkers discuss three wines using Twitter and usually a special guest is involved.
I was given the honor of determining the theme for November and choosing the wines. Since I had some difficulty finding wines for previous Twitter Tuesdays, I thought it would be interesting to discuss, and especially easier to find, Texas wines which are available in your local grocery store.
Denise Fraser (@DeniseFraser) and Russ Kane (@VintageTexas) are leading the all-volunteer TXWine Twitter Tuesdays. I presented my idea and they thought it was good, so I ventured out to two local HEB’s and two Kroger’s to create a list of Texas appellation wines. We went over my list and selected three wines which represented a variety to please all palates.
The three wines chosen and which will be discussed on Tuesday, Nov. 5th are:
- Llano Estacado 2010 Sauvignon Blanc (Texas) – $9 (Dry white wine)
- Becker Vineyards 2010 Cabernet-Syrah (Texas) – $12 (Dry red wine)
- Sister Creek 2010 Muscat Canelli (Texas) – $13 (Semi-sweet aromatic white wine)
We are trying to get a representative from each winery to participate and may have one winery already saying they will be there.
So pick up one or more of these wines and join us for our Texas wine chat and tasting. Please remember to use the Twitter hashtag #TXwine.
