I’m back y’all! I took a couple of months away from the roundup because I wanted to cover Texas women winemakers in March and in April, the eclipse sort of overshadowed everything. So I’m back now, and instead of going monthly, I’m going to try to do bi-monthly and continuously add things as I come across them. With school coming to an end, I’m definitely eyeing a trip out to Texas Wine Country to see what’s new as well as to visit some old favorites. So let’s get into what’s going on the next couple of months.
