Statewide Wine Tasting this coming Tuesday, March 1st.
The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) is hosting a wine tasting of three Texas wines this coming Tuesday, March 1 at 7pm. Three wines were chosen including Landon Tempranillo. The idea is that people purchase the three wines and begin tasting them at the same time and then tweet about the wines.
All wines were made from grapes from the Bingham family vineyard in the Texas High Plains appellation. Cliff Bingham will be tasting and tweeting as well and will be available to answer any questions. Bob Landon will also be on hand to tweet about the Tempranillo.
This is the first in a series of Twitter events around Texas wine hosted by the TDA.
