Texas Wines Featured on PBS Food: We’ll Always Toast to That

By  | 


It turns out that the folks at PBS Food on YouTube have finally discovered what we’ve known all along – that the people in Texas are making good wine! In a segment that’s close to just two minutes in length, Duchman Family Winery was featured together with tasting notes for Aglianico and Vermentino wines.

With the suggestion that looking for wineries that grow Italian grape varietals was a good bet for a great taste, the video segment’s narrator noted that Duchman practices what wine aficionados preach. They have a good structure to their wine, plus it pairs well with local food fare. The video goes on to describe the perfect refreshing wine beverage to have in instances where the Texas heat is getting to be a bit much for you as well – which may come in handy during our autumnal months that don’t quite mirror the cool, crispness we often see and read about (heck, they sometimes barely dip below 80 on the thermometer!)

Featured on the PBS Food YouTube channel, this segment comes from the series entitled “The Original Fare.” Season four of this show began on the PBS network in March of this year, and its website describes the show as, “…the search for the best ingredients on earth.” In that, we’d have to say they’re not lying. Not one little bit. We love – L.O.V.E. – Texas wines and can’t say enough great things about them! We’re glad that people outside of the Lone Star State are recognizing the contributions our state’s wineries are making to the world markets using locally-grown grapes. We’ll always toast to that.
