Happy Texas Wine Month! I’m continuing my month-long celebration of Texas wine. On this episode, I’ve got an interview with Jessica Dupuy about her impressive new book The Wines of the Southwest: A guide to New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and Colorado. Jessica lets her wine opinions be known! PREACH! And then I’m getting political. Well, not really. I’m just reviewing the book Wine and the White House: A History and looking for clues about how U.S. Presidents with ties to the Lone Star State drank wine (or didn’t) in the White House. Which Texas wines have been served at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? What did LBJ drink? How about the Bushes? And let’s not forget Denison-born Dwight D Eisenhower. Finally, I’m drinking the Llano Estacado Winery 1836 Red that is part of the State Fair of Texas Blue Ribbon Selection case.
