Have you read my “first post” about how I am “back from the proverbial dead“? If you didn’t, you totally should. It’ll make you laugh, cry, want to drink wine, and pull the string on some old New Year’s […]
There are times my line of work when I am required to work overtime, late into the evening, demanding my full attention and expertise … last week was one of those times.
But in my line of work, I absolutely do not mind having to work overtime ;)

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.

Vinously Speaking is all about the development and revolutionizing of the urban wine culture of San Antonio! And when events are held that promote that, well we love that even more! So when The Westin La Cantera Resort here in San Antonio invited me to join them for an exclusive social media wine tasting event, you better believed I accepted!
