From the SAHMmelier: Visit to Hye Meadow

In case you missed it, the SAHMmelier (Texas Wine Journal contributor Alissa Leenher) visited Hye Meadow Winery a couple of weeks back, and posted this fun column on her site last week. She highlighted some of the varietals and blends that gives Hye Meadow one of the 290 Wine Road’s more surprising rosters — including a Chenin/Reisling sparkling blend, a Trebbiano, an Aglianico, and a Montepulciano.

Alissa said, regarding this post, “The Texas wine industry continues to grow in both quality and breadth.  With the expansion, we are also seeing an increase in attention and accolades.  As growers and winemakers continue to refine and respond to the terroir and climate, we, the consumers, get to benefit.  I, for one, am continually inspired by what I see.  Aglianico, Grenache, Carignan are all grapes I am seeing more of in the state.  I would love to hear from you.  What new grapes are you experimenting with? What characteristics are you seeing in your region?

(She added, “If you are interested in chatting about your expansion for future Texas Wine Journal articles, please reach out to me to set up a time. Cheers y’all!)
