Judy Myers will be hosting our September Wine Club on Friday, September 21  and the Theme is German Wines & Beer – Let’s Celebrate Oktoberfest.  She will be serving Grilled German Sausages to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment. 

Oktoberfest is a fall festival held in Germany which began in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig.  We’re going to bring a little of that festival to Balcones Woods.  Traditionally held the end of September thru first week of October, for us in Texas this is good cause to celebrate that the relentless summer heat is going to be subsiding!

Reislings, Mosels and Spatburgunder (a Pinot Noir) are just a few of the wines to choose from.  As always, ask your wine merchant for suggestions. And for the beer, one can never go wrong with a Spatan or Paulaner Oktoberfest style beer and any number of Weiss, Pilsner and Bock beers; you decide what you’d like to share with the group.

Please remember to bring a Wine Glass

Sandra & Alan Walker will be hosting our  August Wine Club and the Theme is Hot Fun in the Summertime Wines.  They will be serving Pork Sliders to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment. 

Sandra and Alan will be hosting at the Pool Clubhouse, what better way to have some Hot Fun!  Feel free to wear your swimsuits if you’d like to take a dip during the festivities.  All food and wine will be set up in the Clubhouse, so all bottles will have to stay in the Clubhouse.  Please bring plastic glasses in case you want to walk outside with your wine. 

Great summer wines that can cool a Hot summer night are refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigio and many French Whites…and let’s not forget those Rose’s.  Think Reislings, Chenin Blanc or Pinot Gregio on the White side of wines and lighter Grenache based Red Blends or Zinfandels for Reds to pair with the Pork Sliders.  As always, ask your wine merchant for suggestions.

Remember to bring plastic Wine Glass or cup should you want to venture outside the Clubhouse.

Liz & Tal Knab will be hosting our  July Wine Club on Saturday, July 14th  and the Theme is Murder Mystery Italian Wine Night.  They will be serving Homemade Lasagna to go along with our tasting, so please bring an appetizer, side or dessert to compliment.  

They will be putting a fun spin on the evening by having a Murder Mystery at the La Casa de Giovanni Winery set in the 1920’s, as the backdrop for our Italian Wine tasting.  It’s encouraged to come in period (1920’s) costume if you like.  With Italian wines, there are a multitude of choices.  My best suggestion….is to bring one, either Red, White or Sparkling. As always, when in doubt ask your Wine Merchant for suggestions.  Come and enjoy this Murderous, Mysterious Evening with your Wine Club friends

Jennifer & Dan Garvey will be hosting our June Wine Club 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.
