Cowboys, Cabernet and More at the Bush Presidential Library

Posted by VintageTexas, Jun 14, 2010.

I drove up from Houston to College Station, Texas, as a hazy, yellow sunset burned ahead in the sky, masked only by a few wisps of periwinkle clouds. The roadside fields were lush with greens of every shade, made so by the recent and frequent episodes of early summer rain. The sights of Texas highways and byways still leave me with delight even after more than a year now on the Texas wine trail.

The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (http://bushlibrary.tamu.edu) drew me into College Station, home of Texas A&M University. A received a call for a guided wine tasting and seminar highlighting the heritage of Texas wines, their challenges and the new styles of wine gaining credibility and acceptance with wine drinkers and aficionados.

Brennan Vineyards Viognier 2008

Viognier is rapidly gaining acceptance as a preferred white wine in Texas. Much of the acclaim for this grape in Texas has come from the gold medals received by the Brennan Viognier in wine competitions far and wide. The grapes from winery vineyards near Comanche, Texas. Fruit fresh characteristics of white peach and floral tones of honeysuckle. Produced from cold fermentation in stainless steel, un-oaked. http://www.brennanvineyards.com
