The Texas winery on the blog this week is Lewis Wines in Johnson City. We had a great time “working” while sampling many great wines! Lewis Wines out of Johnson City is a small family-owned winery that uses only 100% Texas Grapes. It has a lovely outdoor covered patio off of the wine tasting room where you can enjoy overlooking the vineyards as you experience some of their award winning wines.
This winery makes small batches, so make sure to try these recommendations soon!
Our top picks from our wine tasting were the award winning 2015 High Plains Rose. I am not typically a fan of Rose, but this is one of the best Roses I have ever had. It makes for a light and enjoyable Summer Wine. Pair it with shrimp or a cheese plate appetizer.
Our other pick was the 2012 Texas Tempranillo Reserve. This red wine is light enough to be enjoyed in the heat of the Summer. Pair this with anything off of the grill, whether it be steaks or BBQ.
Planning a trip to visit Lewis Vineyards? If so, we would love to hear about your trip and what your favorite wines were!
Unit then, life is better with good food, good wine and great design.
We are so excited about the recent transition we made, to feature only Texas wines on the blog. There are so many wonderful local Texas vineyards we thought our blog would be the perfect platform to shine a light on our local wineries.
This month we will be showcasing Stone House Vineyard in Spicewood Texas. This vineyard was great, and while we tried a few different wines that were all good my favorite was the Tempranillo. The Tempranillo was actually a little spicy, which was surprising, but balanced with a little sweetness from the fruit. I think this wine would pair nicely with Barbecue.
If you have the chance to visit Stone House Vineyard, let us know what your favorite wine is, we would love to hear from you!

This wine is a limited edition release and so jump on it while you can. If you are a fan of wines that have been aged in barrels then you will absolutely love the fact that this wine is aged in bourbon barrels.
This makes for a very rich, bold complex wine with a toasty vanilla and black cherry flavor. Continue reading
I’m not sure how I missed such an important day in the past, but it was recently brought to my attention that today, February 18th is National Drink Wine Day.
Previously, I recommended the Cabernet Sauvignon from Brady Vineyards, but I also just recently tried their Zinfandel and it was excellent as well. This vineyard consistently puts out high quality wines at a price that cannot be beat at $20.00 a bottle. Continue reading
