Hill Country Part 1: William Chris Winery "Enchanté"

Having my favorite kind of evening... wine, cheese & fruit, laaaaaa! My sister recently visited several different wineries in the Hill Country known and brought back this little gem with her. It's "Enchanté" from 2008, and is 58% Malbec, 41% Merlot & 1% Cabernet Franc. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to drink wine from our fabulous home state that is hot, dry and kills even the most resilient of grass species (you don't even want to see the copious amounts of water "spent" on the lawns in Austin during the summertime). Oh, and of course eco-friendly, yes!

Two thumbs up to William Chris located in Hye, Texas (yes, pronounced as H-I-G-H), . An evening of laughter, smiles and stories reminisced on your watch...cheers. Or as they say in the the Emerald Isle, Sláinte!
