Kuhlman Cellars New Spring Wines

I could not be more excited about Kuhlman Cellars‘ new spring wines. I spent the last day of my pre-quarantine life in the beautiful Texas hill country sampling these new wines with Kuhlman Cellars’ winemaker Bénédicte Rhyne and Kuhlman’s Assistant Vigneron Ollivier. It was a gorgeous spring day in March and we three sat in…

4.0 Cellars

Ten years ago, three Texas winemakers from around the state decided to open a winery in the heart of the Texas wine country, Fredericksburg. Brennan Vineyards, Lost Oak Winery, and McPherson Cellars came together to open 4.0 Cellars, which is known for its wine and cheese and wine and chocolate pairings. I recently had the…

Pontotoc Vineyard’s Weingarten

A historic respite in downtown Fredericksburg  Tucked away in the charming town of Fredericksburg, Texas lies Pontotoc Vineyard’s Weingarten. Lights are strung from trees and the stone courtyard offers a quiet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the famous Texas town. It’s modeled after the weingartens of Vienna and is both kid- and dog-friendly. I had the pleasure…

Folktale Winery

I could not possibly love Folktale Winery any more. The estate is situated on fifteen acres of sustainably-farmed vineyards just ten minutes outside of town in Carmel, California. The patio is beyond perfect to sip the day away. Imagine sipping the best rose you’ve ever had on comfortable couches in 70-degree weather, roses swaying in…

Kuhlman Cellars

I love how Kuhlman Cellars feels about wine. I recently toured the laid-back Stonewall vineyard on a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and something on the tour stuck in my: “It takes a long time to make wine. You should spend a long time enjoying it.” That sums up my own feelings about wine! A true…

Visiting Grape Creek Vineyards

A stroll through Tuscany in the Texas hill country Even driving past Grape Creek Vineyards is impressive. The hills have rows and rows of impeccably manicured grapevines and it only gets more stunning from there. I visited Grape Creek last week on a media trip to Fredericksburg and Grape Creek was the first stop on…

Visiting Pedernales Cellars

This week I visited Pedernales Cellars in the Texas wine country on a media trip to Fredericksburg. This was my first time to visit Fredericksburg (despite being passionate about wine and fluent in German) and I absolutely loved the rolling hills, gorgeous scenery, and outstanding wine. Pedernales Cellars is located on the famous Hwy 290…

Winter Weekend in Wine Country

Think winter in the wine country isn’t worth it? Think again! I had the best time with my friend Sarah in Sonoma last month. Many of my friends were startled that I was going to the wine country in December, since that’s not a popular time to visit. I’m here to tell you all the…

Benziger Family Winery Partners Tour

A step above organic, this Biodynamic vineyard is a sight for sore eyes Wine Spectator called Benziger’s tour “the most comprehensive vineyard tour offered by any winery in California.” Now I can’t speak to every single wine tour in California but I can confirm that Benziger’s Partners Tour is incredible. You take the trolley around…
