SPACES & PLACES: WINE TASTING @ FLAT CREEK ESTATE

Hello people..Introducing YM’s  SPACES & PLACES dedicated to Travel & Tourism to feature my trips, travel tips and the fav spots (on my wish and bucket list), and events around the world. 

Enjoy the scenery

I have always wanted to go wine tasting (in a winery) and been putting it up off.  Finally did it last fall and it was amazing. . It is a great relaxed activity..Most if not all wineries have Food & Wine events and tours. Food. wine tasting & winery tour should make a good date (other than the classic dinner..way the people go di form sef..lol),weddings celebrations or part of a corporate retreat…This is definitely a fav one for a romantic  Valentine’s getaway!

If you live in Texas, you need to check out the wine country. In the east of Texas, about 40 miles from Austin is the #2 Wine destination in America…The Texas Wine Trail

My first experience wine tasting experience was at Flat Creek Estate. It was Sunday brunch before drinking the alcohol..Their bistro is goooooddd before heading the wine tasting (all the alcohol needs some food..lol).

 You get this whole lecture about how to taste wine, select wines of your choice then proceed to the wine tasting sessions which includes a type and history of the wine, how it is made, the process and what foods compliment it best. It was an interesting learning experience..Now I understand the “drama” with the whole swirling of glasses and smell. I am still to see someone who says NO after that (lol)..But apparently people do.

Wine tasting lesson…What am I looking at? lol

Wine tasting and being a wine connoisseur is an art. Certain wines go better with certain foods..Wine, Red, Rose, Aging, Sweetness, Acidity, Fruits…etc Check out wine characteristics here and Wine Terminology here

OK I feel better knowing that I can post something I did like 6 moths ago hahahha. All those places I've been to but have no pics posted but I hope you had fun!

  2. Every time I am in Cape Town someone suggests a wine tasting. I am yet to bother withe the experience. Actually got several invites for this weekend. Didn't bother to RSVP or even politely decline. Giving the snobs a taste of their own medicine.

  3. I really enjoyed this place and you can definitely find me here for more events. I didn't eat anything when on my recent visit to event rooms for rent, but those around me had truffle fries, pizza, and wings all seemed to enjoy.
