Llano Sweet Red...

Prime Rib for dinner. Charlie the Maltese Puppy wants some, too. Gotta be good... for now, the Winos enjoy Llano Sweet Red!

February 26, 2019

Katy Trails Plano...

Sangrias, Margaritas, and puppies and food, too! Had an awesome time chillin with Charlie the Maltese Puppy. Ordered Chips and Queso and a plate of Barbecue to go with the drinks! At some point, Charlie became a Bulldog?




Martinis, Margaritas, Wines

Martinis, Margaritas, Wines and more this round for the Winos. For the wines, tried a House Merlot from a local eatery along with a frozen margarita. Then, chilled with some martinis made with Polar Bear Vodka! Finally, a little sip or two of Sweet Red from Llano Winery and  Castello Del Poggio Moscato.  All was well in the world!


Grapecreek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon #favoritewine

Grapecreek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was a surprise for the Winos... sweet, made with strawberries, longberries, and wildberries... not your normal Cabernet but oh so tasty. This one easily gets a good rating! Plus it bumps others from the list and is considered the Winos' Number One Cabernet Sauvignon! Do give it a try while in Fredricksburg, Texas!

PS: Had a great time grocery shopping at Central Market. Tasty produce to chose from!


Yellowtail Shiraz Cabernet...!

Yellowtail Shiraz Cabernet is a win for the Winos, especially while chillin and grillin chicken and vegetables on the "barbie"!


Grapecreek Vineyard Winery Wine Club - Mosaic Red Wine

Grapecreek Vineyard Winery Wine Club - Mosaic Red Wine is a tasty one that the Winos agreed to buy again. Easily earns a Good Rating! Goes well the Ribeyes on the grill, too!


Legacy Hall for Craft Beer and Foods!

Tried this place out in Plano for the first time several weeks ago. Awesome place with a great selection of foods, wines, and craft beers! Took lots of pictures, came back several times since then!

Cinerator 91.1 Proof Hot Cinammon Whiskey!

Red Wine Wino found this at the neighborhood liquor store - Cinerator 91.1 Proof Hot Cinnamon Whiskey! Cost less than Fireball and comes in at a whopping 91.1 Proof compared to Firball's 66 Proof! Even better, has a more "cinammony" taste to hit... This one gets a Good Rating!


Grapecreek Vineyard Wine Club - Riesling

Did some grillin an chillin the other day; opened up another bottle from our Grapecreek Vineyard Wine Club offering. This one is a tasty Riesling. Both Winos give this one a Good Rating. Will purchase again!


Finlandia Vodka, Dirty Martinis, Fly Tying, and a Maltese Puppy...!

Finlandia Vodka, Dirty Martinis, Fly Tying, and a Maltese Puppy.... It doesn't get any better! Was a cold and rainy evening the other day. Decided to chill and have Dirty Martini while tying a few flies in preparation for a fishing trip. Afterwards, always a good time... good feeling, when you hug a cute Maltese Puppy!

Dirty Martinis and Stuffed Jalapenos...

Winos opted for more dirty martinis with stuffed jalapenos this past Friday. Tried different recipes and settled on...

  • 2oz vodka
  • 2 tspn olive brine
  • 1 tsp brine from the stuffed bleu cheese bottle
  • 1 tsp vermouth... optional (White Wine Wino prefers; Red Wine Wino does not)

Grapecreek Vineyard's Merlot... Fishing Fly Giveaway!

While preparing for our Fishing Fly Giveaway... had a glass of Grapecreek Vineyard's Merlot served in the Team's coffee mug! Red Wine Wino has gotta work the merch angle with his fishing YouTube Channel but the White Wine Wino keeps things focused on this blog. Both Winos give Grapecreek Vineyard's Merlot a Good Rating... will purchase again in the future!


#Finlandia Dirty Martinis, #Cazul Tequila Shots, and Jalapeno Chips and Dip

Finlandia Dirty Martinis, Cazul Tequila Shots, and Jalapeno Chips and Dip the other night. Tried a Olive Brine instead of the brine in the olive jar.  Tasty and liked it because no Vermouth required! Ramped up the party with some Cazul Tequila Shots served ice cold and in salt shot glasses!

Lakewood Brewing Company - Temptress and Some...!

Tempted by the Temptress plus some fun and games with co-workers at Lakewood Brewing in Garland, TX. Great way to close out a project or two!


Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's with lots of wines....!

A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's with lots of wines to enjoy. Refer to the pictures to the different wines the Winos "tasted". That said, lets have a great year in 2019!



Los Pinos Ranch Moscato

Los Pinos Ranch Moscato is a sweet moscato that maybe of interest to some. White Wine Wino mentioned a dryness, but had no problems downing a glass or two. Red Wine Wino had no problems having a glass, or two, or three... while chillin' in the backyard!


Yellowtail Shiraz

Yellowtail Shiraz remains a favorite of the Winos. For the Red Wine Wino in particular, a glass or two while tying fishing flies was a perfect way to spend a cold winter night!
