Texas Wine Country !!

I guess you think of France, Italy, Germany, Argentina, or California as the meccas for good wine. And I do love their wines!!
But, I was surprised to learn that Texas is the 5th largest wine producer in the U.S.A.  The town of Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill Country for years has been know for it's wine festivals and tasting events. Also big is the limousine wine tour for bachelorette parties, girls night out, birthdays, and anniversary parties.  Brenham Texas has an annual wine stomping event. But I didn't realize how many winery there are in Texas or how large the wine
business is in Texas.

I love a glass of wine in the evening and a light sweet wine is my favorite.  My daughter calls it sissy wine- she likes the rich dry wines that cost a weeks wage!

 Six reasons you should drink wine for your health:

1. Wine could help preserve your memory

2. People who drink wine have a lower body mass

3.  Drinking wine boosts your body defenses

4.  Could  guard against ovarian woes

5.  Wine helps build better bones

6.  Helps prevent blood sugar troubles

Ok, I didn't make this up- I read it on a research on wine benefits.
