This wine is ideal for summer weekend sipping - whether you're sunning on the deck of your boat or snuggling on the sofa enjoying a Top Chef marathon on Bravo. It's light fruit flavors are complimented by a touch of honey and will pair well with grilled poultry, fish or a cheese and fruit platter.
Brennan Vineyards is one of my favorite Texas wineries (www.brennanvineyards.com), and this is their flagship offering, honored with the title of Top Texas White at the prestigious Lone Star International Wine Competition. Reward yourself with this award-winning wine and you'll not only be supporting a local farm and business, but you'll have discovered a grape that is among the best-suited to Texas. While native to the Rhone Valley in France, many Texas growers and winemakers have found that Viognier (vee-on-YAY) is also a perfect fit for several of our grape-growing regions as well. Viognier is up-and-coming in the Lone Star State, and you'll be hearing much more about it in years to come!
Under $20. Available at Goody-Goody and at www.brennanvineyards.com.
