October In Dallas - What A Great Night

6 pm Friday evening, a beautiful dry 80 degrees, but it's Texas-OU weekend which means Hubby is pulling a double shift. A girl's got to be a little independent when married to a guy who works nights (or have a deep addiction to HBO), besides Sheryl Crow was enticing me to take my top off and enjoy a drive. Needing something to wash the taste of Disillusionment with Humanity from my mouth, I had a destination in mind, Dallas' Fuqua Winery in the Love Field area.

I've had a visit to this place on my to-do list since Lobster Boy and I enjoyed their Texas Red Reserve with friends at the Mercury one evening. Lately the "drink local" inspirational stories about Texas Wine Month (October) by the ladies at DallasEats have been a nagging reminder to go and visit. So since today was High School Fair Day at the State Fair, and hubby was busy, I decided to make a quick trip to check the place out.

So I went, I visited, I purchased, and then I decided to wait to taste. Stopping on the way home for some Tex-Mex take-out and a frozen margarita, I don't think I can do this wine the flavor judgement perspective it deserves, so I'm saving my purchases to share with my hard-working better half. Besides, I want to get some killer cheeses at the new cheese store at Preston-Royal to compliment the tasting.

Thanks for the link to our blog in your post! Are you going to write about the Fuqua when you taste it? I'd love to hear all about it!
