This weekend, we will celebrate our 6th year in business, and I haven’t written a single blog since we opened! Everyone knowledgable about Marketing tells me I should take the blog down, but I say, “No”, I’ll get around to it!
Basically, the business has grown like crazy. I can’t possibly catch you up on all that has transpired, but I can share that we have laughed a lot, cried a lot, built a lot, crushed a lot, grown a lot, and been blessed a lot. My business is still open, we are still married, and there have been no fatalities.
The business “story” is based on the fact that it is located on Randy’s ancestral property in Moravia, TX, where Czech immigrants from the wine-growing region of Moravia, CZ, found a safe and bountiful place to settle in America. These Moravians brought their love of wine to Texas and every native family in our area has a home-made wine recipe that has been handed down. I am very proud to have built a vineyard and winery here to honor that legacy.
This weekend, we celebrate our anniversary and, also, the fulfillment of one of my main goals. Just as Grandpa had used the native TX Mustang and Muscadine grapes to make his wine, I wanted to showcase wine made from wine grapes that grow well in our area…Blanc Du Bois and Black Spanish.
On Saturday, I will be excited to share the following new wines with you:
Blanc Du Bois Barel (CZ for wood barrel)– Oak-Barrel Aged Blanc Du Bois from Majek Estate grapes, which joins our stainless steel finished Dry and Sparkling Blanc Du Bois.
Cardinal’s Kiss – a delicious Black Spanish Rose’, from 2019 Majek Estate grapes.
New Praha – a Dry Black Spanish, 2018 Majek Estate grapes, which pairs beautifully with our newly refreshed charcuterie plate.
Additionally, we will launch the new version of Opal – 2019 High Plains Fruit and New Cardinal’s Friend – a Sweet Red Wine made from 2018 Black Spanish grown at Mil Veranos Vineyard in D’Hanis by Virginia Rodriguez.
Thank you to Winemaker Tim Drake, as well as the other winemakers and TX dreamers who have traveled with us on this journey.
The days are long, but the years are obviously short! I look forward to serving you soon.
