Texas Wine Country

This past weekend I went to the Hill Country for a Wine Stomp.  We had been to this particular winery/vineyard for a wine tasting last year, and decided we HAD to come back this year for the Stomp.

The winery is called Dry Comal Creek Vineyards and Winery.  It is located in New Braunfels, TX. (between Austin and San Antonio).  You can read more about them at www.drycomalcreek.com .  My daughter was sweet enough to water my plants for me while I was gone.  Good thing, because our temperatures have been over 100 for EIGHTEEN DAYS.  You see why we needed wine.

Here are some pics from the weekend.  I’m in the orange shirt.

Since I couldn’t bring you all a glass of wine, I will leave you with Dry Comal Creek’s recipe for their wonderful Sangria.  (Pictured in the carafe in a previous picture.)
