So I have been reading a wine book called Simply Wine, by Heidi Yorkshire, in which she shares an adaptation of a wineless wine tasting exercise devised by Tim Hanni of Beringer Wine Estates that involves learning about wine through a tea tasting exercise!?!

Sundays are always fun days when it involves some vinous action :)
It is even more fun when you have the pleasure of visiting the new Messina Hof Winery’s Hill Country Tasting Castle :)
This was my first time to this new addition to the Texas Hill Country wine trail since they opened their doors three months ago. Now, for those of you not versed in Texas wines, Messina Hof itself is not new, in fact Messina Hof has been around since 1977 and is known as one of the pioneers of the Texas wine industry. With their winery and resort located in Bryan, Texas just outside of Houston, they decided it was high time they build a tasting castle in America’s 2nd fastest growing wine tasting trail … The Texas Hill Country Wine Trail!
