Robin EB is now officially part of the Texas wine paparazzi. We spent a big chunk of last night at William Chris Vineyards in Hye, Texas, for a press event and wine club thank-you (as press; we don't spend enough money on our membership to be part of those thanked). You know those wine blogs I list over on the right-hand side of this page? We met most of them, including the big-name guys who have actually published books! And Robin didn't embarrass herself the way I did when I met Warren Ellis.
Full details are upcoming on Vitis Poema but check out some of my crappy phone camera pictures below!
|That is a much more serious knife than you really need to kill watermelons.|
|Everybody gathered beneath the oaks for watermelon sacrifices like vegetarian Druids.|
|Bill (AKA "William") talking about the new varietals on the way. Vive l'Tannat! (I don't know French.)|
|Even as the sun sets, Robin's wine hat sticks out like a big "S" on her chest. (That was my idea.)|
