Wine Tasting at Texas Reds and Whites

I thought I would be able to catch the blog up over vacay but the wifi at the resort was super sketchy. They also limited our connection to two devices so, after connecting Brian’s phone and my phone, we couldn’t connect anymore devices. Sorry, grandma!

While toodling around in downtown Austin, Brian and I happened upon Texas Reds and Whites Tasting Room by the convention center.

Here are some pictures we took of the tasting room.

It was pretty quiet in there all afternoon. We met these two guys who were on a bachelor weekend with their friends. They were killing time before everyone was to meet up for their room escape activity. Before they left, the Asian guy on the left performed a cool card trick for us.

It’s funny how we are always making friends no matter where we are.

They had an extensive selection of wines you could drink by the glass. They had $10, $12, $15, and $18 a glass options.

Untitled

These are all wines made by local Texas wineries.

There was a good but considerably smaller selection of wines available for the tasting. The cost is $20 and you could try three wines or five wines. Both options allow you to choose from the same list of wines. The key difference is that you get more wine in each glass if you only pick three of them to try.

We tried the following wines:

    Reds listed dry to sweet

  • Lost Draw Tempranillo
  • Messina Hof Malbec
  • Thirsty Mule Sweet Red Merlot
  • Whites listed dry to sweet

  • Lost Draw Picpoul Blanc
  • Los Pinos Blanc du Bois

We hung out for a bit and even took a selfie with the lady who was helping us.

Oh, I also saw this sign they had which I thought was sound advice I had also had a glass of sangria (see pic of my sangria below). LOL.

Anyway, we were killing some time while waiting for the brewery next door to open so Brian could sample some beers as well. I would normally create a separate post but the brewery was neither serving food nor their own beer. They weren’t quite officially open yet. They’re targeting a May opening. So, in the meantime, they were only serving beer from other breweries which was kind of disappointing.

Untitled

They also had some wine, cider, cold brew coffee, and a selection of other beverages. Nothing really appealed to me so I didn’t have any.

Untitled

Since were already there, Brian enjoyed some beer.

Untitled

I forget what he had but he seemed to like it.

Here’s a picture I took of the inside of the brewery. Eventually they will be fully open and serving food in addition to their own craft brews.
