Turkey Day Pairings: What’s on the Table?

I have fond memories of Thanksgiving meals with my extended family. Both of my grandmothers were talented cooks who spent much of their days (holiday or not) in their kitchens, making bread and preserves, “putting up” fruits and vegetables, and creating filling meals that made all of us unbutton our pants when the meal was done.  Continue »

October: A Month of Giving at TWC

In July, I announced our new “Pay It Forward” initiative at TWC, a program that allows us to give back to our community by donating to several local nonprofits on an annual basis. We kicked off the program in July and August and gave a portion of our sales to the Hill Country Community Needs Council’s Backpacks for Kids program.  Continue »

Funky Food and Wine Pairings: Another Year of Thinking Beyond Cheese

Remember when the pandemic first started and things came to a halt? Well, it was during these slow, confusing times that GM Dave challenged some of our TWC team members to come up with new experiences for our customers who would be more than ready to enjoy wine and have some fun when everything opened up again. My brain got to work, and I presented him with 12 months of food and wine pairings: cupcakes and wine, donuts and wine, popcorn and wine, farmers market fruits and wine. These were some of my ideas that he gently turned down.  Continue »

The 80’s Are Coming to TWC! Radical!

I started middle school in 1980, finished high school in 1986, and graduated from college in 1990. The 80’s marked almost the entirety of my adolescence, and as you might imagine, it was a turbulent time…particularly for my fashion and musical tastes. I can divide the 80’s roughly in half based on my attire and what I listened to on mixed tapes.  Continue »

Meet Some New TWC Faces!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how TWC is balancing old and new…maintaining what’s always made us a favorite in the Texas Hill Country while making room for new experiences and adventures. Part of this balance involves welcoming new teammates into our TWC family.  Continue »

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 »
