Come out and venture from your comfort zone, and realize that rosé wines are no longer the overly sweet and tart wines of the past and come taste the fruity overtones that lead towards strawberry, raspberry and cherry with hints of citrus and watermelon. Learn and find out more about red wine rosé and see for yourself why they're quickly becoming favorites. These versatile wines are the perfect pairing for hot Texas summer wines!

Fifteen years later in 2004 they started their winery business in Texas. They've come a long way since the basement winemaking experiments in small batches to now with their stainless steel tanks and American & French oak barrels to be a large Texas winery. Landon Winery has earned hundreds of medals, awards and recognitions for its wines.

Saturday, April 6:
2-5 PM -- Wine and Cheese Pairing! -- 4 wines paired with 4 cheeses for $10. We will be featuring some of our most popular cheeses:
Herbs de Humboldt - The fresh taste of a hand-mixed blend of Herbs de Provence balance simply, yet perfectly. Paired with Vino Pinot Grigio 
Black River Blue - A classic American blue from the North Hendren Cheese Cooperative which has been making cheese for 80 years. The texture is slightly softer than butter - a nice creamy backdrop for the bright blue flavor. Paired with Seaglass Riesling.
Maple Leaf Smoked Gouda - This creamy Gouda is made with real smoky flavor from Hickory. Paired with Susana Balbo "Crios" Malbec.
Drunken Goat - Maybe it was another one of those farmhouse accidents: a little too much vine, a wheel of cheese rolls off the table into barrel, two days later somebody finds themselves decanting the first wheel of Cabra al Vino - literally "goat with wine". This semi-firm pasteurized goat is cured for 48-72 hours in Doble Pasta red wine, allowing the rind to absorb a lovely violet hue. Paired with Amadeo Tempranillo.
8-11 PM -- Austin Bradshaw LIVE! Come listen to this extremely talented and versatile performer as he plays a variety of music from country to alternative. Our favorites are his Dave Matthews renditions - unbelievable!

Sunday, April 7:
