This Is Texas Wine

Reflections on Pivotal Moments in Texas Wine

Episode Summary

On episode 24, I'm sharing an interview with PR pros Denise Clarke and Matt McGinnis and author Dr. Russ Kane. They've been drinking, writing about, and promoting Texas wine for many years. Expect a fun trip down Texas wine memory lane! PLUS a summary of the lawsuit brought by 57 Texas High Plains grape growers against Bayer-Monsanto and BASF, makers of the herbicide dicamba. I'm also sharing my favorite wines from two Texas wine events I've attended lately. Cheers y'all!
