Had a great time at the Round Rock Express game on April 4th. Can't thank them enough for the Pool & Spa area that they reserved for the Austin Bloggers. I would recommend the area for a birthday party, or large group just looking to enjoy a great day of sun, fun, and baseball.

Deer Run Chauffer Service took a group on a wine tour yesterday. We got to enjoy many wineries, but a new one for us was Wimberley Valley Winery! WOW, what a great place. This is a definite spot on our touring list. I can't wait to make my own wine slushy with their Texas Country Cellars Sweet Red. YUMMY! Wine and a cool slushy all in one.

Had a great day on the Wine Road Fredericksburg 290. Took a couple of people on a TX wine trail with Deer Run Wine Tours. We hit Texas Hills Vineyard, Williams Chris Vineyards, Luckenbach, Grape Creek Vineyard, and Becker Vineyard. It was an awesome day touring the hill country, even though I did not partake in the vino, I was able to sample the scrumptious pasta!

Trattoria Lisina and enjoying the scenery and sunsets! Deer Run enjoyed a fabulous dinner and a bottle of Mazzoni! What a delicious bottle of wine pairing it with Antipasto Misto. If you have never been to Trattoria Lisina or Duchman Family Winery then you are missing out on a beautiful piece of the hill country!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Today's discussion: Chocolate & Wine
If you enjoy the buttery flavor of white chocolate, then maybe a good Moscato d'Asti or Orange Muscat. Something with sweet bubbles pairs well with white chocolate.
If milk chocolate is your favorite, then I recommend a pinot noir, or light-bodied Merlot. A creamy milk chocolate would be delicious with a muscat, sparkling wine, or dessert wine.
Dark chocolate is paired nicely with a Cabernet or Zinfandel.
My favorite - chocolate covered strawberries with a nice sparkling wine or Champagne!
Dudley's Wine Bar in Dripping Springs has yummy chocolates and wines!

Mardi Gras is a good time to showcase Cajun Cuisine! What wines could you pair with these wonderful hot and spicy flavors? Those of us who enjoy big and bold reds might want to pass while eating these rich and buttery foods.
