Roll Out the Barrel, We’ll Have a Barrel of Fun

Confession: I haven’t always known much about wine. And to be clear, I still have lots to learn. For many years (let’s say beginning in college), I was primarily a beer drinker, with some tequila thrown in here and there. I do recall hosting a dinner for friends during my Junior year and serving up some pink, boxed wine with the spaghetti meal. We thought we were so classy. And didn’t Mad Dog count as wine at that time?  Continue »

Getting Our Golf On!

For several years, TWC has supported the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce and the Hill Country University Center. Both hold golf tournaments each year to raise funds, and this means that a couple of us at TWC have spent a fair amount of time on golf courses in the past three or four years. In fact, I think it’s fair to say that both TWC Director of Operations Beth and I have spent more time on golf courses in these recent years than we have in our entire lives.  Continue »

Texas Wine Collective Gets Out and About

Spring has (finally) sprung (as my allergies can attest), and town has been packed for the past few weeks. The sidewalks have been crowded, available parking spaces have been few and far between, and waits for tables at restaurants have been longer than usual…even on weekdays!  Continue »

New Year, New Wine Club Sundays!

As I’ve written about previously in these “Scoops,” 2020 asked us all to be flexible, think creatively, and accept change. Some of these lessons were definitely harder to learn than others, but I’d like to think that we’re all better for having learned them (or for at least trying to learn them). And if you’re like me, you came into 2021 hoping for a little calm and perhaps even predictability. So far, neither of these has panned out. In fact, perhaps 2020 was just prepping us for early 2021.  Continue »

Our First TWC Blending Session Is in the Books!

Ten years ago, if you’d told me that I’d be pouring wine in a Texas wine tasting room, I would have laughed. It just wasn’t on my radar back then. And if you’d then told me that I’d actually be making wine, I would have considered you nuts. But that’s exactly what I found myself doing just this morning.  Continue »

The Year in Review

Whew. Well, that was a strange one. This past year reminds me of a horseback ride I took several years ago through a national forest in northern New Mexico. Things started out just fine, even a little boring, but by the end, I was just glad to get off the horse in one piece.  Continue »

What’s in a Name?

As a former English teacher, I spent many weeks each year exposing my adolescent students to the joys of Shakespeare. I’m not going to lie: This sometimes took some serious educational acrobatics on my part. While I prefer Hamlet and Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet was more accessible to most of my students. They could relate to it on a teenage love level. Plus, I could show them the Leonardo DiCaprio movie version of it. That made everything better.  Continue »

Sharing Our Plenty

Six months ago, it would have been impossible to imagine the energy we’re feeling at 4.0 Cellars these days. At that time, we’d been closed down for a few weeks and were trying to find ways to open safely and according to TABC and state guidelines. We were getting creative, testing e-commerce strategies, making use of online platforms to connect with our members and customers, and generally, finding ways to stay busy.  Continue »

Now We Really Can Rosé All Day!

My husband and I have spent many hours in the past two months poring over interior design and furniture websites. While I’m certainly no designer and my husband surely would prefer to spend his time doing many other things, lately we’ve both felt compelled to change our home environment.  Continue »

Wining and Dining Our Way Into Fall

If you read my posts, then you know that that I prefer some of our 4.0 events over others. Basically, if an event involves dogs and/or food, then I’m all in…because wine is already assumed. Though it lacks dogs, Wine & Dine remains one of my favorites.  Continue »
