South Texas Merlot

The wonderful Wine X magazine has an article on the wineries in the Hill Country of Texas. A great, very humid area just outside of San Antonio. I spent a summer teaching kids to canoe on the waters of the Guadalupe and have loved this area ever since.

The area was settled by Germans who made a quick peace with the natives and were successful in establishing a few small towns that still have largely german influence today. With this European slant on things it was natural that they would make the push in to wine.

They even talk about a place that made it's own Sangiovese just so they could have a wine strong enough to go with their smoky brisket.

The hills are alive with the sound of meat - [winexmagazine.com]
