Texas Wineries: Gumbo Cookoff and Texas Wine

Windy Winery Vintners

Texas Wineries are so much fun!  Just north  of Brenham and 10 minutes from the ranch you will find Windy Winery, the only local winery  that is home to wine made only with Texas grapes.  It is always a delightful place to stop in for a tasting, a bottle of wine to enjoy on the porch or for one of their fun adventures…..just like their annual Gumbo Cookoff

Gumbo

offering  7 different gumbos to taste and enjoy with a glass of their wine (my favorite it the “Saucy Red” for its’ bold and spicy flavor which is perfect with gumbo, steaks, Mexican food and more).  After sitting out on the back patio overlooking the vineyards and enjoying the beautiful weather, we finished off the tasting  from this Texas winery on our way back to the ranch with a piece of Butter Cake that the vintner, Linda, had made  for our dessert.  In addition to their individual fun offering throughout the year, Windy Winery is one of many Texas wineries  located on the Bluebonnet Wine Trail.  The Bluebonnet Wine Trail

Bluebonnet Wine Trail

offers 4 different food & wine festivals each year with approximately 10 different wineries participating as you wind your way along the trail.    Windy Winery is always worth a stop on your Texas Wineries tour!  While in our area be sure to visit downtown Brenham where you will find a historic downtown with antique & boutique shopping, entertainment, history, architecture and delicious dining.  Not sure what to do?  Just ask us or comment on this post for others to read!
