Carl's Corner - Tempranillo Grape Variety, Neighbors, and Blending Partners

In anticipation of the upcoming Taste of Texas: Tempranillo Showdown at the Texas Wine Collective Event Center on Sunday, 19-May-2024, this post offers information on the Tempranillo grape variety and some of its neighbors and blending partners. Tempranillo is the fourth most widely planted red wine grape in the world and is most famous for making fine red wines in the Rioja, Ribera del Duero, and Toro regions of Spain. It is also one of the key grapes grown in the Douro region of Portugal and used in production of Port wines and, these days, many dry red table wines. It is believed that Phoenicians introduced wine grapes to Spain, so the Tempranillo that originated in Spain may well be related to ancient Phoenician species from Lebanon in the Middle East.  Continue »

Taste of Texas – Mac and Cheese for the WIN(e)

This Taste of Texas event celebrates my favorite comfort food, Macaroni and Cheese, on Sunday, 25-February-2024, and will feature three variations of mac and cheese accompanied by six (6) delicious wines from the TWC winery partners, Brennan Vineyards, Lost Oak Winery, and McPherson Cellars. It will be fun to compare and contrast the rich, creamy flavors in the bowls to the bright flavors in the bottles. For cooler winter weather, or really any weather, mac and cheese is a good mealtime choice, either as a hopped-up entrée or a delicious side. Mac and cheese is now found on the menu in almost every type of food establishment – food trucks, snack stands, and restaurants that focus on family fare as well as high end cuisine.  Continue »
