We attended a tasting at NICE Winery in Houston presented by Bending Branch Winery from Comfort, Texas. Jennifer Beckmann from Bending Branch brought three wines to present to the people on hand. Invitations to the event were sent to the NICE Winery wine club members in addition to being announced by Bending Branch Winery and NICE Winery on Facebook.
As people arrived, Ian Eastveld from NICE Winery greeted them and presented them with something chilled from coming in out of the hot weather, the NICE Winery Sauvignon Blanc. Jennifer then took over to present the three red wines from Bending Branch:
- 2010 Tempranillo from Newsom Vineyards
- 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon from Newsom Vineyards
- NV Tannat from Reddy Vineyards
NICE Winery co-owner Ryan Levy arrived soon and intermingled with the guests. The tasting room was comfortably full with people from the NICE Winery wine club, Bending Branch Winery wine club, and friends of the wine club members. Conversation flowed as people met new wine friends and enjoyed the great wine.
We were also able to taste with others a NICE Winery Rosé which we had not tried. On top of the excellent wine being served, there were platters of cheese, crackers, and meats.
All in all, it was an excellent evening at the NICE Winery and we want to thank both the NICE Winery and Bending Branch Winery for working together to put on a fantastic event.
This is just a prelude of things to come so keep watching for future news!
