Let's Talk Turkey

The Holiday Season is here!!!  Christmas music can be heard playing in retail stores, the Christmas garland and wreaths are being hung on Main Street as I type, but before we get all 'wrapped-up' in Christmas, lets take some time and be Thankful.  Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of year.  It is a time to be reflective of what we are most grateful for in our lives.  Faith and Family are always on top of my list.  What are you most Thankful for?  If you are planning on visiting Fredericksburg during the Thanksgiving Holiday, here is a list of Restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving Day.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Tuscany in Texas!


Fredericksburg, Texas, has become known for its wonderful selection of local wine shops, wineries and vineyards. One of the premiere wine and vineyard experiences can be found at Grape Creek Vineyards, located on Wine Road 290.

At Grape Creek, tours and tastings are offered in the gorgeous and romantic setting of a beautiful rustic villa sitting atop a hill surrounded by lush grapevines. It truly feels like "Tuscany in the Texas Hill Country!"

Grape Creek is a family owned and operated, award winning winery with a state of the art production facility, rich legacy and intriguing history. Owners, Brian and Jennifer Heath, strive to create an atmosphere that will "refresh your heart and replenish your spirit."

Grape Creek Vineyards currently produces between 17 and 19 wines. They have received over 100 medals in the last two years. Their best known wines include:
  • Cabernet Trois (a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cab franc and ruby cab)
  • Cabernet Blanc ( a semi sweet rose' of cabernet sauvignon)
  • Bellissimo (a super Tuscan style-sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon)
  • Mosaic (a Bordeaux style blend)

The Grape Creek experience has also recently expanded to include a full tasting room and retail shop located at 251 East Main Street, in the heart of Fredericksburg's main shopping district. Plan a visit soon!

For more information about Grape Creek visit their website at www.grapecreek.com.

Peach Season is Here!


It's true! Vogel Orchard is already harvesting early varieties of peaches--Regal, Flavorich, Starlite White--and opened its market on April 27.

The outlook for the 2012 peach season is very good this year. Though the past month has been dry, the winter rains helped alleviate the effect of last year's drought. The early peaches are a bit limited in size but their flavor is enhanced due to the increased sugar concentration.

Vogel Orchard reports, "Right now, we are running 10-14 days ahead of the normal schedule but it is uncertain whether that will continue throughout the summer.  Watch www.vogelorchard.com for weekly updates."

For help finding Hill Country peaches visit the Hill Country Fruit Council website at www.texaspeaches.com.
