Wine Club – June 2018 (Saturday, June 16th)

Jennifer & Dan Garvey will be hosting our June Wine Club on Saturday, June 16 and the Theme is Roll out the Rose’.

They will be serving Triple-Decker Baked Cheese Sandwiches and some of their favorite Rose’ selections to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment.

This is the time of year to roll out the Rose’ and since we’re already hitting the triple digits on the thermometer, why not serve ‘em with a triple-decker cheese sandwich. Some cheeses go better with White, some with Red; yet almost all pair well with dry Rose’ which has the acidity of White and the fruit character of Red. Rose’ is a personal summer favorite of mine, and I can recommend that Austin Wine Merchant has a large selection to choose from. As always, when in doubt ask your Wine Merchant for suggestions. If Rose’ isn’t your bag, feel free to bring your favorite summer White or Red to share with the group.

Wine Club – May 2018 (Friday, May 11)

Darla Smith & Nancy Norman will be hosting our May Wine Club on Friday, May 11 and the Theme is Welcome to Summer Wines.

They will be serving Chicken Sliders as well as a Vegetarian option to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment.

As we all know, our Texas summers get HOT! Great summer wines that can cool that down a bit are refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigio and many French Whites…and let’s not forget those Rose’s. All of which will compliment those Chicken Sliders. On the Red Wine side of things I would suggest light to medium bodied Reds with a higher acidity, perhaps a Pinot Noir or French Burgundy for chicken. As always, when in doubt ask your Wine Merchant for suggestions.

Red Wines with earthy or smokey flavors found in Cabernets, Syrah, Shiraz or Zinfindels can match the rich flavors in venison and for you White Wine lovers, steer towards a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. As always, when in doubt ask your wine merchant for suggestions.
