9 Things You Need To Know About Texas Wine

Texas Wine Revolution_Natalie ParamoreSummertime is somehow now rosé season and I’m not exactly complaining. Ok, I actually love it. This spring, I got the chance to head out to the Texas Wine Revolution which is a festival that celebrates all things Texas Wine! It’s a super cool event and I discovered how incredibly delicious Texas wine is. I mean Texas isn’t always the top of the list when you think of wine but it really should be. No joke, two of my all-time favorite rosés are from right here in the Texas wine country!

I learned a lot about Texas wine and how it is made and all the things that make it different from other wines at the event. I decided to ask eight foodies from around Austin what they wanted to know most about Texas wine and their questions are just what I think we all would have asked! From what wine pairs best with queso to how grapes are grown here in Texas, I’ve got it all right here!

Venison Meatballs with Pesto Pasta

Venison Meatball and Easy Pesto Pasta Recipe_Natalie Paramore

I can’t believe how rainy it’s been this June! I can’t complain because I’ll take any relief from the summer heat. These rainy nights those have had me wanting to stay in and curl up with some comfort food. Instead of rushing off to the grocery store, I rummaged through our freezer and picked some fresh herbs for this meal! Needless to say, this rain has my garden going crazy and I’ve been using that as an excuse to put pesto on just about anything. I use the term pesto very loosely. This actually might not be a pesto at all, since I skip the cheese and nuts, and opt for super fragrant herbs! It adds a ton of flavor without all the calories. I’ll change up this recipe for whatever is in season: spinach, arugula, oregano, jalapeños, basil, cilantro… whatever I can get my hands on!
