A Quick Visit to Bending Branch

Sean and I decided to stop in at Bending Branch to see how the Wine & Tennis charity event went. We got more than we bargained for.

First, the charity news: the amateur players brought in $25,000 and the sold out dinner added another $10,000. We left before the auction, but that looked promising. So, Bending Branch will add quite a bit to the coffers of the Boys & Girls Club of Comfort. Congrats!

We also learned about new and upcoming releases. The Texas Tannat is a second release and is coming along well in the bottle. A Vintage Texas Tannat is on its way -- more to come later. A Tannat port made its debut last night at the dinner and is just so smooth and drinkable, even on a day like today. I tasted these two today, and I  just had to sit and savor each.

On the way are a Texas Temparnillo and Cabernet Sauvignon that will find their place among the selection at San Antonio's Pearl Farmer's Market. The cab may see a special release at the San Antonio Cellar Classic in October.

So many goodies today. More details will come.
