Texas On My Mind These Days As Spring Starts With The DUCHMAN Family Winery In Driftwood, and the McPHERSON CELLARS Winery in Lubbock, Teaxs... And Also Now SALT LICK BBQ , Too! March, 2015 ... Spring Is Here Now!

What a wonderful surprise just a few minutes ago! I walk up to Eva and Insley as they are smiling and very excited with the bottle they are holding of the DUCHMAN Family Winery 2010 Viognier Bingham Family Vineyard that we have On Special for $16.99 a bottle. Eva and Insley were so pleased as Eva saw the bottle it looked familiar. That is because she and Insley had just been there tasting in the tasting room, that is perhaps a 30-minute drive  from Austin, Texas ( is that where Janis Joplin was born ? ), as they had driven out to SALTLICK Brabecue restaurant that is lierally across the street, or close anyway to DUCHMAM Family Winery. The owner Scott of Driftwood that also makes wine told them to visit DUCHMAN as they enjoyed some there with their barbecue meal! Wow, what a coincidence as I have been recently talking this week a whole lot about both e the DUCHMAN Fanilt Winery and the McPHERSON CELLARS vineyard in Lubbock, Texas with both Mark Smith and also Peter Fulham. This made all three of us smile as we spoke about their great meal and tasting there. They loved both experiences! Insley said they were in Driftwood, Texas. This makes me want to go now! Thanks for sharing all of this with us Eva and Insley. Can't wait to see the pictures you took there of the restaurant and the vineyard! Have a great weekend. Enjoy your bottle of the Viognier 2010, I bet it is drinking beautifully now, fully-developed, fragrant and floral and fleshed-out completely now. Cheers on this official cold 2nd day of Spring. Come taste the Romanian wines here later from 2-6PM with Raz and Gabriella. TONY  3/21/2015
