The boutique winery specializes in personalized pours. Rather than growing its own grapes, D'Vine starts with high-quality juices to create its renowned reds and crisp whites. Wine is special in that it's a beverage equal parts soothing and social. Host a sophisticated birthday party, toast to the end of a stressful week, or gather your closest for an afternoon of grapey goodness.
Handcrafted wines flow freely inside the elegant tasting room of Clear Creek Vineyard & Winery. Made with grapes sourced straight from the sunny vineyards of Texas and California, varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, malbec, sangiovese, and chenin blanc line the racks along the walls and are available to taste by the pour right at the bar. The Clear Creek team was recently joined by executive chef Michael Calvino, who has crafted a farm-to-table menu ideal for wine pairings and also oversees multi-course vintner dinners.
The 4th Annual Pearland Wine and Food Festival by Dionisio Winery will take place in Pearland Town Center Pavilion and feature over 10 Texas-based wineries showcasing red, white, and fruit wines along with local food and music in a Texas-style event on Saturday, August 29th, 2015. Visitors to the 4th Annual Pearland Wine and Food Festival sample the award-winning rich reds, crisp whites, and sweet fruit wines from a selection of local wineries. Local restaurants and vendors whip up delectable dinners and food pairings, while merchants peddle memorable keepsakes and handmade jewelry. Staff fill signature wine glasses with countless samples of Dionisio's delicious wines. With food, wine, and tunes provided by Houston-based bands and businesses, the fest is a better way to celebrate the local culture than nibbling sandwiches into the shape of the Astros' stadium.
Since 2006, La Fuente Winery has brought the flavors of Chilean wines to Texas, winning recognition at the Houston Rodeo International Wine Competition for their varietals. Most notably, they produce a spicy carménère red wine, a grape very similar to merlot that was wiped out by disease in France. The vines survived on the shores of Chile and worked their way into bottles of uniquely Chilean vintages.
When Enchanted Manor Winery's chief mead-maker handcrafts his honey brew, he follows a recipe from a 17th-century cookbook from the court of King Charles I. These medieval techniques inspire the winery's special mead for the annual Texas Renaissance Festival, which is brewed from Texas wildflower honey and sipped from knightly knee cops. Enchanted Manor also whips up modern meads flavored with orange blossom and oak, mixed with pear wine, or brewed from the honey of the guajillo flower.
In addition to its signature meads, Enchanted Manor Winery whips up small batches of wines from grapes, peaches, and other fruits, and augments their stock with bottles from nearby wineries. Enchanted Manor also hosts special events such as sangria nights, mead tastings, and wine classes.
