Scratching the Surface in San Antonio

4.39pm, Brookhollow, Houston (Bayou Town), Texas, USA
I’ve just got a bit of time before we head off to do our consumer tasting this evening, so I’m going to get another Rewind done!

Monday, 28th September: San Antonio Rewind
This was my first visit to San Antonio, although I feel very much at home with the idea of the place – being a big country music fan, and having sung along with the old “Rose Of San Antone” countless times with everyone from Bob Wills to Dwight Yoakham. We went to do a session to consolidate the Yalumba story for our distributor’s sales team and to introduce ourselves to some of the local trade. We had a private room set up at Fleming’s Steakhouse – lovely glassware and skewered beef tips with a blue cheese dipping sauce (PS two things you’ll always find across the States in many shapes and forms – cinnamon and blue cheese ), chicken chunks with a sweet chilli sauce, plus some fruits and cheeses – it always helps enormously to show in a better light the aromas, flavours and textures of the wines. A quick look at the famous Alamo, and back that night to Austin. But it was only really scratching the surface – we’ll be back!
