Bryan Chagoly of Sandy Road Vineyards and Top Texas Wines

Bryan Chagoly of Sandy Road Vineyards and Top Texas Wines

My guest Bryan Chagoly co-owns Sandy Road Vineyards in Johnson City. We discuss how Sandy Road Vineyards started and their plans for the future. We also talk about Bryan’s latest project, Top Texas Wines. You'll hear more about this effort to promote the Texas wines that win the most gold medals in international wine competitions.

In Texas wine news, there’s a major development in the effort to add another AVA in the Hill Country, some travel and tourism news, and more news that has people talking. I also share a personal story about a recent blind tasting event I hosted.

Cheers y'all!
