HOT TIME Summer in the City…or Spring in the Hill Country!
It’s just plain hot these days, and while we might not have been ready for full-on summer just yet, we Texans can handle it…and a little refreshing wine on these hot days doesn’t hurt. Continue »

The Evolution of Pie
It all started with a dream. Gabe, our TWC Warehouse Expert/Logistics Coordinator, wanted to make pizza. GM (at the time) Dave’s dream was to sell some food and possibly make a little money. As it turns out, Italian pizza ovens are pretty expensive, but one was needed to make Gabe’s dream come true. Continue »

TWC Is Smashing the Ceiling!
Groups of women have made their marks throughout history. Without the suffragettes who fought long and hard for almost a century, women in the U.S. wouldn’t have won the right to vote with the 19th amendment. The women of NASA made famous by Hidden Figures literally propelled our space program forward. Three-fourths of the team who ultimately broke the German Enigma code were women called the “Bletchleyettes.” And if you want to learn about some really bada$$ women, check out the Soviet “Night Witches.” Continue »

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.

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 »
