Hill Country Surprise!


Deep in the Hill Country of Central Texas, Damian Mandola has built a South of France/ Tuscan inspired wine estate. Viognier meets Vermentino. Mandola Estate Winery. The wine is crisp and surprisingly fresh! The fuzzy peach aspect is tempered by a healthy wash of backbone, just like the longhorn steers that roamed the now gentrified countryside. Or as we say, “Texas wine ain’t just for bubba’s anymore!”

Mandola Estate winery can be visited, 7 days a week. About 20 minutes from downtown Austin, Texas. Map

Texas wine makes me wonder if there’s a worm in the bottle. :) Then again, I’m always willing to try something new, or something known from someplace new!
