Arts In Bloom Festival in Historic Downtown McKinney #winetasting

Had a great time at the Arts In Bloom Festival in Historic Downtown McKinney today. Enjoyed good food, great music, lots of arts and crafts... and our favorite... wine tasting. The Winos were joined today by a guest... the Sweet Wine Wino, so the Team decided to find a tasty red wine and purchase a bottle for later enjoyment!

So many choices but luckily, a decision was made... First Kiss Sweet Red Wine from Kissing Tree Vineyards in Eddy, TX. Do give this one a try... we understood the wine if offered in Texas at HEB and Central Market Grocery Stores!




Willhoite's Garage Bar in Grapevine #dallasblondeale #bushmills #willhoites

Stopped at Willhoite's Garage Bar in Grapevine the other day to meet up for Dinner with others. Happy Hour was in full swing; decided to try the Dallas Blonde Ale, and then a little Bushmill's served neat! Was a nice way to chill for the day while waiting for the others.

Don Simon Tempranillo

Picked up this bottle of red wine at Whole Foods the other day. Don Simon Tempranillo gets a Good Rating from the Winos! Plus it was only $5.99 for the bottle... tasty wine, with good alcohol content, and both Winos agree to buy again!

Rail Yard in Frisco for Margaritas and Wine! #frisco

More fun in downtown Frisco, TX... this time, checked out the Rail Yard and listened to live music and had a Margarita or two! Also, tried a tasty Malbec from Vinalba Winery. Will be back for more fun times... and again the White Wine Wino will need to sample the Malbec before we can post a rating for it. No worries, always ready for an excuse to return to a spot we liked!





Flight of Craft Beer and Sangria at Eight11 in Frisco

Out and about last night. Stopped at Eight11 in Frisco (TX) and had a flight of craft beer before settling on the Blood IPA. Also, Sangria was strong ans tasty, too! Winos will be back for more!





Fetzer Merlot at Cheddars

Dinner at Cheddars, ordered a Fetzer Merlot for a starter. Then, the Philly Cheese Steak. Both were tasty, will have to try another glass of Fetzer before making a rating decision. The White Wine Wino was unavailable to taste the wine. And, of course, the White Wine Wino refused to take the Red Wine Wino's recommendation until properly tasting the wine!


The Pub in McKinney

Had some homemade chips... loaded of course, and a flight of whiskey. Went trout fishing earlier that day, so the Red Wine Wino was extremely pleased! Caught a fish, had fried food, and a buzz from the whiskey! White Wine Wino was the designated driver... no comment on the day's fun. LOL!



The Mill in Abilene #sangria

Stopped at The Mill in Abilene one evening. Went with the refillable Sangria bottle and a glass of their House Red! Cool atmosphere and great conversation with friends and family!


Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Concha Y Toro,


Had this one before and liked it! Had it again and still liked it! Especially liking the price... $7.99 at the grocery store for the big bottle!


Belle Made for You - Cabernet Sauvignon

Belle Made for You - Cabernet Sauvignon rated a Best Buy by 2016 Wine Enthusiast. Gave it a try and the Winos agree to purchase again... hence, it earns the Winos' Good Rating!

Wine and Moonshine... Like Them Both; Cool They Rhyme, too #frontera #conchaytoro #yellowtailmerlot #climaxmoonshine

Been enjoying glasses of wine and the occasional Moonshine kicker recently. For wines, the Winos still agree Concha Y Toro's Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is still gets a Good Rating as well as Yellowtail Merlot!



Then, a little shot or two of Tim Smith's Climax Moonshine to fortify the evening's entertainment is always a good bet... Original and Fire both get Good Ratings from the Winos!

Gloria's for Brunch... #margaritas #mimosas #steakandeggs

Had Sunday Brunch at Gloria's Restaurant in Garland's Firewheel Shopping Center. Ordered Steak and Eggs, and the had Margaritas and Mango Mimosas with Chips and Bean Dip and Salsa. Tasty, tasty!


Getting Mashed at Mash'd... #moonshine #cocktails

Fun time a Mash'd in Frisco. Met up with others and commenced to get mashed at Mash'd... LOL! Went with several cocktails; one of which had a two per customer limit. No worries... flight of moonshine shots was a workaround. The Winos were not drinking wine this round.

Stillhouse Red Hot Whiskey


White Wine Wino picked this one up on a whim while shopping in Plano, TX ... Stillhouse Red Hot Whiskey! Tasty and strong with the red "hotness" that the Red Wine Wino likes!

Castello Del Poggio Moscato #moscato

Always good for this one is the White Wine Wino's purchase of Castello Del Poggio Moscato. We first tasted this Moscato at an Olive Garden Italian Restaurant. Later, found the wine was offered in local stores including the big Walmart down the road. Castello Del Poggio Moscato continues to earn a Good Rating from the Winos!



Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot from Concha Y Toro #redwine

Had this one before...Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot from Concha Y Toro and liked it. Grabbed a big bottle from the shelf while grocery shopping. Later, had a glass of it while chillin' on a cold winter day. This one still gets a Good Rating from the Winos!


Amarula Cream Liqueur #butterynipples

Poured a glass of Amarula Cream Liqueur and gave it a taste. Liked it... noted the 17% Alcohol Content, so added 99 Proof Butterscotch Schnapps. Even better! Like a Buttery Nipple... going to be a tough decision having tried Buttery Nipple variants using Bailey's Irish Cream, Sheelin's White Chocolate Irish Cream, and now the Amarula Cream Liqueur.

Do have to say that all paired well with the 99 Proof Butterscotch Schnapps! For now, going to flip a coin when mixing up a drink, or go with whatever is on sale! Cannot miss in either case!
